10 reasons Christians should reject Romney
WND.com ^ | 10/27/2011 at 5:55 PM | Gordon James Klingenschmitt

We’ve all heard the controversy about presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s faith. Is he a Christian? He claims to be, yet 75 percent of American Protestant pastors disagree with the statement: “I personally consider Mormons to be Christians.” Wherever you stand, here are the top 10 reasons Christians can never vote for Mitt Romney – and they have nothing to do with his Mormon faith.

Romney forced homosexual marriage upon Massachusetts.

When the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decided in 2003 to recognize homosexual “marriage,” ignoring the voters and the Constitution, the court admitted it did not have power to issue licenses or force participation by justices of the peace to solemnize the weddings. But as governor, Romney didn’t wait for the legislature to act, he just ordered the marriage licenses and weddings to go forward, all by himself. Earlier this month, Romney said in New Hampshire, “What I would support [nationwide] is letting people who are of the same gender form – if you will – partnership agreements.” And despite the over 2,500 pedophilia cases now on record involving homosexual Scout leaders, Romney once stated, “I feel that all people should be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

Romney is pro-abortion. This year he’s the only major Republican presidential candidate who has yet to sign the Susan B. Anthony List pledge to defend life and defund Planned Parenthood nationwide. Candidates Bachmann, Perry, Gingrich, Paul, Pawlenty and Santorum all signed the pledge, although it should be noted Herman Cain supports everything in the pledge except the Fetal Pain Act. (Cain is not fully pro-life, either.) And who can forget Mitt’s famous 2002 campaign debate bragging repeatedly that he’s more pro-choice than Ted Kennedy?

Christians must consider this:

Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

I will not vote for Mitt.

If that’s all it’s come down to, you’re in trouble

No doubt about that. Not only am I in trouble, the whole country is in trouble.

I don't think that Romney's choices of judges or his foreign policy would be greatly better than Obama's. But they would be better.

Sort of like being poked in one eye instead of being poked in both eyes. Both hurt, one hurts more.

As you said, it's trouble.

I was just thinking about some what-ifs the other day (waste of time, I know). What if Palin had jumped in early, what if Cain had stayed in and fought on, what if Newt and Santorum had formed an alliance. Anything would be better than what we have now.

Because we are voting for a President. He has specific duties, and social policy isnt one of them.

you can post all of the threads you want saying he is the father of gay marriage, but that isnt the issue. The issue is, does he support the Fed involvement in marriage? If he does, then it is a strike.

The other two are just opinions you have on someone who has different views, and result in hyperbole. If I didnt vote for liars and character assassins, I wouldnt vote.

But above all, Christians are smart enough to make up their own mind without you or some website trying to tell them how to vote.

Maybe you have noticed, that over last few weeks you are losing your hate-Romney at all cost audience big time. Those seriously thinking voting third party or not voting at all is the path to victory is an ever shrinking number here on FR. And it’s because that way of logic is ridiculous.

Romney is far to the right of GWB


Which Romney?

This one?

1. Implemented and supported Gay Marriage
2. Supported and forced Gay Adoption
3. Supported the Brady Bill
4. Implemented a state-level “Assault” Weapons Ban AFTER the Federal AWB was allowed to expire.
5. Supported TARP
6. Believes in Man-Made Global Warming.
7. Supported a state level Cap-and-Trade system in MA.
8. Supported Amnesty for Illegal Aliens (pathway to citizenship)
9. Raised taxes/fees by 300% while governor of MA.
10. Implemented a Socialist Health-Care program in MA called RomneyCare with $50 dollar Abortions and an Individual Mandate.

Or the lying sack of crap who has:

1. Lied about always being Pro-life at CPAC this year.
2. Lied about being a "severely conservative governor of MA" this year at CPAC.
3. Practiced and practices character assasination on both Rick and Newt on a regular and routine basis.
4. While stating he had become Pro-Life, went ahead and continued to nominate EXTREME Abortion advocates to the bench and supported whole-heartedly Embryonic Stem-Cell research.
5. While stating he believed marriage was between a man and a woman, then did an end-run around the legislature and single-handedly implemented Gay Marriage in MA.


Sorry, but Willard has always been a lying left-wing, Progressive Liberal turd, he will always be a lying left-wing, Progressive Liberal turd.

Not at all.

Try looking at the threads I posted today, and some I did not.

That audience you think is shrinking, is adamant and just as strong, and as the primaries continue to play out, I'll continue to post these articles and more and more lurkers and posters are going to know who and what Romney is when they choose/choose not to vote for Romney.

Wishful thinking on your part.

Furthermore, you can fight for that lying sack of crap, left-wing, Progressive Liberal all you want, your wasting your effort, your breath, your postings, and ultimately, your vote.

Romney, with his left-wing, Progressive Liberal record will be beat over the head with his record by Obama and the media, and will be slaughtered if he is the nominee.

NO, the real issue here is Romney's left-wing Progressive Liberalism coupled with his lying nature.

You are choosing to put rose-colored glasses on and wear a clothespin on your nose so you don't have to deal with the reality of this situation.

Romney fully intends to push forward with the Gay Agenda. All the while he will be stating he is against the Gay Agenda but will find every decietful way he can push it forward just as he did in MA.

You’re not going to find Romney fans here, I get it. But if he continues surging ahead in the delegate count and takes the nomination, only a complete fool will say another 4 years of a socialist hell-bent on “transforming America” into a socialist utopia will be better. Those saying they are going to stay home or vote for a third party says how ignorant they really are about who really is behind Obama and how destructive and poisonous he is.

No, only an utter and complete fool would choose to ignore Romney's left-wing, Progressive Liberal record, his nomination of extreme left-wing judges, and his record of lying about being Pro-Life, Pro-Family, good at business, about being in support of a cap-n-trade system, his continual character assasination of other candidates and then assume that he is somehow going to be much better than Obama.

My reading of Revelation tells me that there is one, not two, anti christs, and having recently left the century dominated by Hitler, Stalin and Mao, calling either Obama or Romney the anti christ is lunacy. So Romney and Obama as anti christ runs counter to my reading. Second, as a Catholic, I do not read Revelation as prophecy for the End Times. I believe the Lord said “The day and the Hour are known only to the father”, and 666 referred to Nero. What I do know is that Obama’s reelection, looking more and more likely, will be made even more likely by people taking the view that the two are equal in the dangers they pose to the Republic.

Thanx for the warning. My only regret is that so many here will follow through on Election day and stay home. Then when we wake that Wednesday our lives may be changed for the worse forever.

I think that’s your issue, personally. But its not the issue that defines a President. The reality is Romney will win the nomination, so do what you will after that.

I did a quick look around and found that Mitt EASILY refutes most of your claims here:

I don’t label myself a Mitt-bot (I’d love to see a Newt/Cain ticket), however, you rabid Mitt-haters doth protesteth too much - imho...

Speaking for God?

I was thinking of the following passage from 1 Corinthians 3:

(9) For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, your are God's building. (10) According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. (11) For no other foundation can anyone lay than than which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (12) Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precioius stones, wood, hay, straw, (13) each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is. (14) If anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. (15) If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, ye so as through fire. (1 Corinthians 3:9-15)

I do not want to suffer loss in the next world by voting for either of these anti-christs.

He who pulls the lever for either of these anti-christs will have to answer for it in the next life.

Exactly...and we should be far more concerned about that 'next life'...

I see Mitt’s office of propaganda is open for business. This site you mentioned provides information and links to Mitt’s lies. Now Mr. Assault Weapons ban says he has always supported RKBA. According to the Mitt’s Politburo, he completely agrees with George Bush on weapons.

And no matter the truth, Mitt’s little piece of Pravda says his dad really did march with Martin Luther King and I quote from the site, “the question is not whether Romney actually marched with King but whether King and Romney left the impression they had marched together.”

This little snippet I quoted from the website you linked is Romney in a nutshell. It doesn’t matter to Romney that he lies like the devil himself. What matters to him is whether people are left with the impression it happened.

Some people, perhaps even you, have been or will be fooled by Mitt’s spin, but discerning people will see right through his lying, phony self. Anyone looking to be brainwashed into backing Mitt can go the site willing to ignore the truth.
