Christians Voting For Obama
A while back I asked you all who was planning on not voting. I got a whole bunch of answers ranging from folks not planning on voting, to people claiming it was un-American to not vote, to, what I consider the best answer, from Amy explaining that not only did people fight for our right to vote, they also fought for our right to not vote. Now, here’s the thing. I do not plan on voting, and here’s why. It’s simple. I’m not registered in Tennessee to vote. Pretty easy right? Here’s the thing though, I don’t think I would vote even if I could. Maybe that makes me un-American or something, but I don’t see a good choice so I am opting out.
That being said I would like to know something from the Christians that are die-hard voting for Obama. I’ve tried to follow the different views of Obama and McCain and honestly, like every other presidential race, whoever I am listening to sounds like they are saying what I want to hear. Guys running for President are good at that I suppose. But there is one thing that has stuck out more than once to me and I haven’t really heard a clear answer about it. I’d like to know what Obama’s stance is on abortion and how that affects the Christian voter.
Historically, it’s seemed like the Christians have typically voted for the guy who has killed the least amount of babies. Is that happening this time around? Or has it become too cool to jump on board with Don Miller and other “forward thinking” Christians and simply overlook that tiny detail? Again, it seems like every time I have looked into it it’s a pretty blurred area. I still don’t really know Obama’s stance and when I find that out I’d like to know the Christian voters thoughts. Carlos, I want to hear from you on this one.
