Pollster: I Know Evangelicals are Voting ‘If I See Cars with Little Statues of Jesus’
CNSNews ^

Posted on 11/08/2012 7:03:41 PM PST by chessplayer

(CNSNews.com) - American pollster John Zogby seemed to mock Evangelical Christians at a briefing specifically for foreign journalists that the U.S. State Department sponsored in Washington, D.C., on election day.

“(I)f I see cars in the parking lot with little statues of Jesus and Bibles in the front seat, that means that Evangelicals are going to turn out to vote,” Zogby, president of Zogby International, told the foreign reporters.

Moron, you are not likely to see any material evidence that a person is an evangelical. Statues of Jesus? We don’t HAVE statues. We might have a church bulletin in the back seat.

He’s so wrong. I have a cross hanging from my rear view mirror and a Bible in my seat.

Funny.

I know Moslems are "voting" when I see body parts.

Zogby’s just upset because nobody takes him seriously anymore.

I believe Zogby’s brother James is a Muslim activist. I must admit that I no longer pay any attention to him.

Around here, those little statues may be the Madonna, and hermano isn't voting Republican, most of the time.

Lots of the pickup trucks with boat props for trailer hitch window dressing, though.. them boys might be voting conservative, whether they vote for a Republican or not.

Are they seeing statues of Jesus on the dashboard with fuzzy dice hanging on the mirror with a low rider car? I think I can solve this puzzle.

Mote likely Catholic from what I’ve been told.

Protestants believe that statues of Jesus or depictions of the crucifixions with Jesus on the cross go against the 10 commandment.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve been to many, many Protestant and Evangelical churches (son #3 is the assistant pastor at one) and I have never seen a statue of Jesus at any of them.

I have never understood the term “evangelical” Christian. Aren’t all Christians called by the great commission to be evangelical? I think it is used as a slur.

LOL! That’s a Catholic car — not an evangelical one.

No, it's not a slur. All Christians are not evangelicals. There are mainline churches, there are Catholic and orthodox churches, then there are evangelicals.

Definition: belonging to or designating the Christian churches that emphasize the teachings and authority of the Scriptures, especially of the New Testament, in opposition to the institutional authority of the church itself, and that stress as paramount the tenet that salvation is achieved by personal conversion to faith in the atonement of Christ.

2 Timothy 4:5 pretty much calls all Christians to be evangelists. Everybody. Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, 3 guys with M-16s kneeling in a grove for a moment of prayer. Everybody.

That's my reading, anyway.

If I'm wrong, God will 'splain me. I imagine that's pretty far down on my list of 'of sh--' stuff, though.

As opposed to caculating the voters who bend over and stick their asses in the air for Mohammad?

He’s a heck of a “smart” guy. LOL

He’ll know they’re liberals if the statues are in jars of urine.

Right you are. And that is why it begins with a lower-case letter. It’s a movement of the spirit, and anyone can be one if he so chooses.

Same is true for “born-again Christians.” We are told in John Chapter 3 that we all must be born again.

We are so sect-minded that we make everything into a sect. If we are to be “all one in Christ Jesus,” then all Christians must be both of these things—evangelical and born again.

Zogby supports Islamic terror front groups. What is he doing at State Department sponsored briefing?

Mr. Zogby is incorrect. Evangelicals follow the Old Testament law that says “you are to make no graven image”. Tha would include statues of Jesus.
