Christians: Don’t Vote, Pray Instead!

Just a friendly reminder to our godly brethren. Since prayer is so powerful and effective, it should be used to further God’s cause in America. So don’t vote; pray!

    On the one hand…please. Please pray and don’t vote.

    On the other hand, I think people would be shocked by the actual political complexion of the un-churched (so to speak) really is. For those liberals out there who normally see religion in a political sense only through the lens of loud and unrepresentative psychopaths, you might be surprised just how much support you’re throwing away by disinviting the religious to political participation. Remember, the democrats used to be the party of religion, and in many important below-the-surface ways, that never really changed.

      Most Christians (I assume this is directed at Christians given the quoted Bible verse) I know are Democrats and members of some moderate to liberal church. I’m not sure staying home necessarily has the outcome this poster implies.

      I wonder if the actual result of all Christians praying instead of voting isn’t President Paul.

        Moderate and liberal churches are probably less stupid on the Power of Prayer (TM), and people are less invested in the Literal Truth and less sheltered, so they won’t take this call so seriously.

        I know in Italy the wouldn’t, because praying is considered at best as a way to commune with God, and not as a way to ask for stuff.

    This is either from a Democrat trying to be sneaky, or a Repugnant being really stupid. I can’t tell.

    Interesting conundrum: if you posted this all over a religious community, would it be voter suppression?

    If we’re wrong and the people who believe it are right, then the poster is actually giving them good, workable advice. :/

      “If we’re wrong and the people who believe it are right, then the poster is actually giving them good, workable advice. :/”

      That’s the whole point! ^_^

      The problem with prayer is that it kinda sorta approaches testability. =)

    Where did you find this? There’s no attribution on the poster – if it actually is a poster.
    I tend to think that a certain number of people who don’t like Mormonism will not be voting.
    However…..”In the months since its new law took effect in July, 81,471 fewer Floridians have registered to vote than during the same period before the 2008 presidential election, according to an analysis of registration data by The New York Times.” Making it harder to register to vote is having an effect, to say the least.

      Yeah, but only on the demographic that the lawmakers didn’t want in the voting booth, I’ll wager. If you look closely, you will probably not find large numbers of disenfranchised wealthy white people.

    um, any chance we can make this actually happen. Imagine an election where religion didnt matter. Its like a dream.
