Don’t Just Vote, Vote Biblically

As some of you know, I was privileged to travel to Haiti in 2010 with my parents, Greta Van Susteren and her husband John, and the Reverend Franklin Graham and his daughter Cissy.  Rev. Graham’s wonderful charity, Samaritan’s Purse, provides faith-based assistance to those in need around the world. 

Of course, his father Billy Graham has impacted the world for the cause of Christ in ways we can’t even imagine.  Recently, he announced a new effort to encourage people to “Vote Biblical Values.”  He wrote:

The legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is crucial. As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me that America will remain one nation under God.

You can download his materials for your church and friends here.  So, on November 6th, don’t just vote. Vote Biblically!

    It is not a matter of wether or not Mormonism is a cult or not. I take issue of you not staying on topic of discussion on this particular thread.

    I am an Anglican. My religion is older then yours. I have a different point of view of Mormonism, but what i have stated previousily still is true here.

    The difference between church and State. The dispute over what the founder’s true intent has gone on since the founding of the United States. Look at the Federalist Papers, The U.S. Consitution as wll as the Supreme Court opinons over the years. It is a very complex topic for discussion here.

    Depending on what the issue isWether or not, for examples Religous schools and hospitals is madate from the sgovernment on what they do not belive in force to do something that violates there religous principles.

    Employees or patients can go find employment or care elsewhere.

    We could on this topic for awhile a still not no clear conclusion to this separation between church and State,

    Where is that statement in the constitution, Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence..Fado!? Voting biblically is a constitutional right and an individuals right under the Bill of Rights. Our Declaration of Independence was written for a people who wish to freely excersize their God given rights to life, liberty and the persuit of happiness. NO where is that statement uttered in any official US historical document during the forming of this great nation. Congress shall “pass no law” with respect to an establishment of religion. So far, no ‘LAW” has been passed by Congress establishing any ‘church denomination’ as the official state church/religion as was in England. Whatever transpires in this country short of that act by Congress, any talk of religion is a free excersize anywhere in the United States by anyone, anytime they wish! There is no “seperation” except what you as an individual wants for yourself. If so, you have the right to avoid it or ignor it. So, I suggest you simply ignor the good, sound judgement to vote biblically by voting in a moral vacume. That’s your right as a citizen!

    Fado, in fairness, asking people to vote Biblically does not violate separation of church and state.

  • Fado

    Fredrick, in granting religious liberty , the First Amendment separates church and state. And you may want to appreciate this because while you may want to force your religious beliefs on others ( eg. Disallowing gay marriage) you certainly don’t want the laws of other religions who may gain power forcing its laws on you. Separation of church and state is a good thing.

  • Sheila

    LOL!

  • Fado

    But politicians governing based on their religious beliefs violates church and state Middleroader.
