Posted on 11/07/2012 4:18:54 AM PST by The Ignorant Fisherman
Many of us could not imagine that Romney could lose this election, especially after four years of Obamas radical Marxism and its social and fiscal consequences that America will NEVER recover from. All the hype and all the Romney rallies; it indeed looked like a sure victory for Romney except for one equation, the Evangelical vote. We here at the IFB have talked back and forth among ourselves since the RNC convention and with others also in the know; that if the Evangelical vote did not show up on Nov. 6th the jig would be up and Romney would lose big and indeed he has.
Remember, the GOP and Romney gave NO place to the Evangelical vote at the RNC convention. They outright snubbed us and that act rubbed Evangelicals the wrong way.
Remember, the GOP and Romney gave NO place to the Evangelical vote at the RNC convention. They outright snubbed us and that act rubbed Evangelicals the wrong way. The Evangelical vote consists of the TRUE social and moral conservatives of the party (i.e., the Right). Romney and the GOP also gave very little time to the Tea Party who is the heart of the grass root movement and the engine of the Party! The viewer ratings for the 2012 RNC convention were way down, some 40% and many of us- including myself - did not watch one lick of it. Why should we have? We knew what we were getting and many of us felt dissd being left out as we were. That in its self should have set off warning bells to the RNC but in all honesty many of us who are Evangelicals were still going to vote for Romney holding our nose. It is our duty as Believers and an Americans to be salt and light (Matt. 5:13-16) and even though Romney was who he was; he was the better choice still and the lesser of the two evils for our nation. We were not going to trust in a Romney win but that a Romney win would slow down the final deterioration of our nation.
Many Evangelicals who voted for Bush in 2000 and in 2004 felt betrayed by his agreeing with and passing many of the Marxist policies of the progressive Left. To this day it still has left a bad taste in our mouth and many have NOT forgotten it. Evangelicals felt betrayed and many did not vote for McCain in 2008 which gave Marxist Obama the victory. When you add the convention snub of Romney and the GOP that was the straw that broke the elephants back.

Now we come to today, the day after the election and we once more again see that the Evangelical vote has stayed home; and in doing so have given Obama another four years to finish the job of transforming our nation and fundamentally changing our culture and way of life which includes the elimination of sound biblical Christianity. I know I am going to get a ton of hate mail for this statement, but SHAME ON YOU for sitting home and not choosing to be light and exercising your God given right to vote (Matt. 5:13-16)! I know all sides of this argument and there is still absolutely NO excuse (Matt. 5:13-16). Your self righteous pride, biblical ignorance and foolishness has open wide the door now for Christian persecution in our nation and the end of the freedoms we have for the furtherance of the Gospel. My friends, indeed the Day of the Lord is at hand, but WOE to any who seek to bring it about who call on the Name of Jesus Christ by being idol and slothful.This is NOT a sanctification matter and God will hold you accountable for hiding your light and voice.
In the end, this 2012 election has revealed without a shadow of a doubt that the Evangelical element has lost its salt and light and that America has absolutely no problem in FULL LIGHT re-electing a radical progressive secular Marxists to reign over us.

I think of Samuel when all of Israel wanted a king and not the Lord (1 Sam. 8). It broke his heart and rightly so! He knew what was coming. Thus America in this election has said quite loudly that we DO NOT want the God given freedom to exercise what our Founding Fathers envisioned, which was based on the Laws of Nature and of Natures God. In doing so we have REJECTED the Judeo/ Christian values and ideals which once made this country great. We have now as a nation fully taken on the mantle of Lawlessness and the spirit of Anti Christ as our nations ideology and culture.
Indeed, we as Evangelicals will now see what we must surely endure under lawless administration of Barack H. Obama and many Evangelicasl will be sifted and found wanting. That there... you can take to the bank!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
Of course, it’s also possible that there’s an aspect of Romney’s persona or resume that rubs people the wrong way. One element may be a perception of Romney as this ruthless plutocrat.
“I voted for a Christian, Conservative who opposes abortion and homosexuality. Can you say the same?”
I voted to help keep the nation from nose-diving instead of at least a hard landing.
God can war with Mormons if he’s just too damn bored to deal with the Muslims.
The theological differences are an obstacle to the unity we need. "We must all hang together or we will surely all hang separately."
Taking a survey: How many of you attend a Christian church, of any denomination, where you heard an anti-Mormon sermon? Wondering if it happened in evangelical churches or in mainline?
- - - - - -
I attend a couple of different churches (depending on where I am) one mainline (Lutheran) and one Evangelical (Calvary Chapel) and I have NEVER even before this election heard an anti-Mormon sermon from either church EVER!
I hope you voiced to him that he is a fool. He must have thought Romney was running for a church office and not a political office.
Or maybe not realized there is a difference.
I can tell you I know about ten evangelicals. All but one were staying home.
You put your faith in God to put the dictator out and professed it by not voting for Romney. God just told you that it was up to you to remove the kenyan by voting for the one person who could get enough votes to displace him.
Now what have you accomplished? You put your concepts of faith before preserving the Constitution that protects your concepts of faith and your rights to hold them.
You had better start praying very hard that the Constitutioh and our freedoms can somehow be saved because God left the removal of the dictator to you and your vote and you have been found lacking.
Fools all and certainly no friends of what is left of our Republic.
Mormons and muslims are no different in the eyes of God - both are lost and in need of Jesus.
They haven’t come close to counting or reporting all the votes. It will be weeks, and the final totals will be millions higher than what you see.
I don’t expect the total to match 2008, but I guess it could.
The GOP nominated a liberal and expected conservatives to vote for him because he was a Republican liberal.
Folks still persist in trying to blame flame and shame the social conservatives for Romney's loss. They should instead blame the GOP who has lost its way and abandoned the winning formula Reagan showed them.
Goode was the Constitution Party vanity candidate. The equivalent of voting for Mickey Mouse if you couldn’t do a write-in protest vote.
I didn’t think so.
How ya doin’ sister?
Neither one of the candidates was a Christian in any sense: Obama is a wishy-washy muslim through and through, and Romney is a Mormon who believes that God (Jesus) is the brother of Lucifer and is only one of hundreds of thousands of gods in the universe. So, no Christians were on the ballot.
Romney is now and always was a devout democrat, espousing all of their beliefs in homosexuality, abortion (rape, incest, and health of mommy were nothing more than 100% abortion on demand . . . we already have that, Mitt), government intrusion into the private sector (federal or state required health care . . . what's the difference?).
Once again, I had to hold my nose tightly to vote for Romney just like I did for Dole, and just like I did for McLame.
I have participated in this charade too many times to be snookered again. Our society is now a godless and disgusting gaggle of pro-homosexuality and perversion at its lowest. I personally cannot fault the Evangelicals for refusing to partake in this godless experiment in government. God bless them for showing backbone. There was no biblical Christianity on either side of the ballot.
I will never again give my support to what's left of the Republican Party in any way. We voted in a strong bunch of Tea Party conservatives in 2010 who were instantly muzzled, silenced, and made impotent by the RINO John Boehner.
Sorry, but until another party of some substance shows up, I will not vote again in any national election.
Welcome to the Jungle. You just voted for the Muslim...
- - - - -
Nope. Not even a good try. I voted for whom I voted, not a Mormon or a Muslim who are both liberals.
What part of the electoral college do you not get? My vote didn’t change the outcome at all of my state or even the local elections, but I voted nonetheless.
“Get a grip...Goode voters had no effect on the election.”br>
Agree - but it is that mindset (along with voter fraud) that helped Obama cling to power.
In that case, I would have walked out and shaken the dust of that place off my shoes in the parking lot.
You are correct. Somehow Republican votes disappeared.
yes Romney was shoved down our throats - but he ran a classy campaign with honor and dignity befitting the office.
who do I hold accountable - every one here who bemoaned his mormonism and sat it out on principle.
Id suggest everyone here go off screen for a while - the govt needn't know anything more about us - as its clearly gearing up against us
Remember, it’s not cast the ballot. It’s who counted it.
I don’t know a damn thing about it. But I suspect we will find cheating on a grand level.
(Nope. I voted...neither for Obama or Romney...Also, last I heard, Evangelicals were 1/3rd of the total 2010 vote...that was hardly "staying home 'again'")
