Just because you're a Christian

Just because you're a Christian October 11, 2011

Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean I’m voting for you.

I make it a rule not to vote for people with poor judgement, no matter who they claim to align themselves with.

Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean I’m voting for you.

I make it a rule to not vote for people who flash their religious affiliation like it’s a pass to a gated-community for the rich and famous.

Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean I’m voting for you.

I make it a rule not to vote for people who think that identifying with Jesus Christ gives them a  leg up as they go about stomping on everyone else.

Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean I’m voting for you.

I make it a rule to actually study your conduct and not just the speeches you give.

Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean I’m voting for you.

I make it a rule to consider how your faith compels you, first and foremost.

Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean I’m voting for you.

I make it rule to take into account how you treat the people Jesus cared for — the poor, the unemployed, the elderly, the disabled, the veterans, the tax collectors, the children and the people who care for them.

Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean I’m voting for you.

I make it a rule to check out your friends, and see what kind of people you surround yourself with. Because if your closest advisors are the sort that go around spouting off at the mouth, and belittling others because they are different, or because they think differently than you do, than forget it.

I won’t be voting for you.

I don’t care who you say you worship.

I don’t care if Jesus is your very best friend.

What I care about is how you treat your best friend.

And those that he loved.

So don’t be touting that faith of yours in my face like it’s some exclusive gold card that will grant you admittance into heaven and the presidency of the United States of America.

I’m watching how you treat the people you are running against.

Because I’m pretty sure if you treat your peers in an ugly fashion, you won’t think twice about kicking me and my people to the curb.

All in the name of Jesus, no doubt.

Oh. And one more thing, you might want to tell that pastor of yours he ought to consider cutting out his own tongue,

Before he offends someone else.

Jesus must have the patience of Job to put up with the likes of your pastor.

Isn’t he the same fellow who drummed up the $115 million building campaign designed to turn a historic downtown Dallas church into the supermart of stadium worship centers?

And isn’t he the same fellow who has earned his celebrity status by talking about what he stands against (gays) & not who he stands alongside of (wealthy)?

And isn’t he the same fellow who called into question Obama’s faith? Maybe I missed something – did God die and leave Pastor Robert Jeffress in charge?

And now here he is again, at the forefront of the GOP campaign, puffing himself up like a puny peacock and once more playing the role of Bully for Jesus.

Yeah. Just because you’re a Christian, I won’t be voting for you.

I’d rather vote for a humble man… or woman.

One who lives out their faith in  a way that draws others to them.

You know, like Jesus did.

Instead of one who wields his faith like a mobster with a baseball bat.

Or allows his friends to.
