Skip to comments.10 reasons Christians should reject Romney
Posted on 03/30/2012 8:52:16 AM PDT by SoConPubbie
Weve all heard the controversy about presidential candidate Mitt Romneys 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 didnt 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 hes 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 Mitts famous 2002 campaign debate bragging repeatedly that hes more pro-choice than Ted Kennedy?

Good! Vote for Obama!
The choice is Romney vs. Obama. It’s a done deal, even Newt is saying it’s so.
When it was early in the primary season, I was ok with anybody but Romney. I voted Gingrich. But that ship has sailed.
Given that, someone convince me that 4 more years of Obama is better. I’d love to hear the logic that will tell me, in light of what we’ve seen from Obama, especially in the last few months, that 4 more years of his Marxist trash is better than Romney.
My thought exactly. Newt and Rick are toast.
I didn’t know how bad Romney really was until I read that article /s/.
I think a more apt article is 10 things I don’t like about Romney and 10000000000000000 things I don’t like about Obama.
Sorry, but if it comes down to it in November, this Christian will vote for the Mormon rather than the Muslim.
Now you ARE going off the deep end. Revisiting an article from 10/17/2011?
Should we all start posting articles about Perry, Cain and Bachmann again too? Hey I know, let’s get the Palin threads going again, now there is a sure fire way to change reality!
I'm doubtful I will convince you of anything, but there is one thing I can think of that is infinitely more dangerous to the survival of this free republic than the threat of the reelection of Barack Obama:
The casting away of all principle by those who call themselves "conservative."
We can't survive that as a free people.
It will be Romney vs Obama. I will vote for Romney, as being slightly less bad than Obama.
But I cannot imagine working to get out the vote for him. There is a good chance my congressional district will have a solid conservative running in the House election. It is a new district, with no incumbent (Gabby Giffords won the last time, but she is out & the district has been redrawn). If the House nominee is anyone besides Sally McNulty, I will donate time and money to help him get elected.
But Romney? I honestly didn’t believe a liberal like Mitt would win the nomination. I will have a very hard time making my arm pull the lever for someone who supports fudge-packing rights...
Christians dont need a website telling them the right way to vote as a Christian.
I was going to say, about 6.9 Trillion things I do not like about Obama! And some of these “articles” about Romney are pretty well off the chart in the reality department, themselves.
I’ll take a non-Christian American over a non-Christian non-American any day. If the Republicans can sweep the WH, House and Senate, it’s a huge win for America.
I'm not even going to try. Four more years of Obama would be a disaster for this country, and I'm not using hyperbole. Romney was my last choice, but by God, if he's the nominee I'm behind him and ready to fight. Any so-called conservative who sits this one out is playing for the other side, plain and simple.
If anyone tries, just ask them this: Who would you rather have appointing federal judges for the next four years, Romney or Obama?
And who would you rather have negotiating foreign treaties for the next four years, Romney or Obama?
What a mess that it all has to come down to this.
Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God.

That means NO to Mitt.
A marxist vs a socialist. Unless the Republicans get their act together with another alternative, this Christian will be sitting this one out. A big no to both Obama and Myth the phony.
It’s a lot easier to press the 0 key until you get bored. After all infinity is a lot bigger.
Then you’re voting for Obama, especially in Jersey. If you’ve convinced yourself there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between Obama and Romney then IMO you’ve bought a bag of goods sold by the Dems.OTOH if you watch that vid of Obama and Medvedev maybe you’ll see a reason that every patriot should vote for any GOP nominee be it Romney all the way to Palin. Preventing a second term may be the last chance this Republic has.
You’ve hit the nail on the head...be prepared to receive some flak for it.
We like communism.
We like the thought of armed rebellion and fighting in the streets.
The Rapture is coming anyway.
Mitt is a Mormon.
Freedom is just too confusing and complicated for me. Better to have someone sort it all out for me.
>But Romney? I honestly didnt believe a liberal like Mitt would win the nomination.<
It only shows that Republicans are not as conservative as they pretend to be. Liberalism is well established in the GOP.
Not very huge at all, if it's just another speed bump (e.g. 2003-2007) on the highway to unfettered Marxism.
If there would be a silver lining to the very dark cloud of 4 more years of the Obamanation, it could be to bring about sooner the coming conservative revolution (if it's coming).
i dont vote for them eather—lol
I’ve always supported other, more conservative candidates, but the sad fact is that most Republicans have made the decision for us, and Mitt is going to be the nominee. Before you decide to sit on your hands and hand the election to that proto-communist who has already done such a fine job of mangling our nation, ask yourself this: is it even faintly possible that Mitt Romney’s attitudes and beliefs have changed over the years? In other words, do you still hold precisely the same ideas and beliefs you held 20 and thirty years ago, or have you learned and changed your mind? Clearly some of the things Mitt (and many conservatives, including the Heritage Foundation) believed years ago have been implemented and found not to work, so he seems to have realized the mistake.
False Choices 'R' Us.
Do what you have to in your state primary or caucus, but when it comes to the November General Election, you can count on this Christian voting for the GOP ticket.
Youre 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.
Hey EV, I can’t stand Obama or Romney either....think I’m gonna follow your example and run myself.
If that’s all it’s come down to, you’re in trouble. Romney appoints liberal judges. Just take a look at his Mass. court appointments and he has no problems with the Red Chinese getting US secrets.
These are things that he has already shown us. What else is Romney hiding?
I feel sorry for all of you who have given up. I’m sure there are some here who are closet liberals, some who are Mittbots and some who are GOP-e and traitors. I will continue to inform anyone who considers voting for Romney about the person they are supporting. Unless you are a socialist, the more you see of him, the less you will like. I’m sure Obama will make certain every conservative gets to see plenty of Mitt.
*** The casting away of all principle by those who call themselves “conservative.” ***
And when there are 15 of you left on this forum, what kind of clout will your brand of “conservatism” net you?
Ahhhh, but you’ll feel righteous going down with the ship.
“I’m not even going to try. Four more years of Obama would be a disaster for this country, and I’m not using hyperbole. Romney was my last choice, but by God, if he’s the nominee I’m behind him and ready to fight. Any so-called conservative who sits this one out is playing for the other side, plain and simple.”
I couldn’t agree with you more. Romney is whatever he has to be to get to be president. However, I don’t believe he hates America. I believe Obama hates America and thinks the country needs to be cut to size.
And who knows, the weight of the presidency for a man who really loves his country could result in a better president than we expect. We know what we’re getting with BHO.
Go for it. It’s a free country.
For now, at least.
There are more folks who still “hold these truths to be self-evident” than you know, obviously.
If Satan and the son of perdition were running, I'd be told to vote "for the lesser of two evils." Well, I do not have to choose either.
And don't tell me not choosing is the same as choosing. He who pulls the lever for either of these anti-christs will have to answer for it in the next life.
No, the ones going down with the ship are those who claim to be "conservative" but refuse to get off the sinking GOP garbage scow.
And by the way, the phony self-righteousness of those very people is on display right now like never before.
They seriously think that supporting the most liberal governor in the history of the republic, Mitt Romney, just because he has an R by his name, is patriotic, and that they now have a license to insult anyone who refuses to sacrifice the founding principles of this free republic on their altar of perceived political expediency.
*** There are more folks who still hold these truths to be self-evident than you know, obviously. ***
If this site is allowed to exist 2 years into Obama’s second term, I hope to find you and ask you how much better it is than a Romney presidency?
Those truths won’t be self evident when Obama and his band of Marxists are done with us.
“They seriously think that supporting the most liberal governor in the history of the republic, Mitt Romney, just because he has an R by his name, is patriotic, and that they now have a license to insult anyone who refuses to sacrifice the founding principles of this free republic on their altar of perceived political expediency.”
Being dogmatic without thought is now way to go through life son.
This is no insult, in fact, you’ll take it as high praise. It is people of your mindset that are referenced when pundits say that Ronald Reagan couldn’t win a Republican primary these days.
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.
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.
Speaking for God?
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 its because that way of logic is ridiculous.
In the end times all you get are bad, unacceptable choices.
Did you vote for GWB?
Then stop whining, suck it up, and pull the lever for mittens...
