Romney Loss - Evangelicals "Again" Stayed Home
IFB ^ | 11/7/12

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 Obama’s 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 “diss’d” 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.

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.

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.

In the end, this 2012 election has revealed without a shadow of a doubt that the Evangelical element has lost its salt and light (Matt. 5:13-16) 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 Nature’s 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 nation’s 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.

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!

“Our pastor voiced concern about Romney making mormonism more mainstream.”

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.

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.

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.

Reagan showed how a conservative wins. Bring the social fiscal and military conservatives together behind a candidate who can appeal to all three.

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.

I believe there was huge anti-Morman voting throughout this election.

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.

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.

I have noticed anomalies as well. Looking at the results for North Dakota, it seems odd that 55+% Republican votes, from the presidential race down ticket only departed from that trend in the Senate race. How many voters were likely to cross party lines in the Senate Race, yet vote Republican in all else?

There also is a time to be a realist - God will not continue to allow us to mock Him - we will be judged - and that time is near. His judgements on Israel were severe - and that is waht we are bringing on ourselves.‹br>

Meanwhile we allow Satan to slaughter our innocent children as we ogle our 401Ks and our fine cars and toys.

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

so basically you helped a Muslim that worships the false demon god,

- - - - - -
I KNOW the ‘fruits’ of Mormonism and I know their motivations. I also know their false gods. I USED TO BE ONE OF THEM.

They are just as lost as any other non-Christian regardless of what the world perceives as their ‘good works’ which are done for their OWN exaltation rather than the glory of God. Mormonism is MUCH MUCH MUCH closer to Islam than it is Christianity.

BTW, that verse is speaking about FALSE PROPHETS (like Joseph Smith), not the works of believers. If you are going to quote the Bible, check the context.

Finally, Glen Beck supports Mitt in part because they are both Mormon. I wouldn’t trust a thing Beck says because I know and can filter through his words and the Mormon meanings and doctrines.

I feel just fine. I didn’t help EITHER of them get elected, and I didn’t further EITHER of their false gods and my conscience is perfectly clear before my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Romney was not my first choice (or second, third, or forth). And my initial lack of support for him had nothing to do with his religion.

But once it became clear he was going to be the nominee, I was behind him 100 percent.

To be honest, I was more turned off by “Christians” who spent all their time bashing him because of his religion... the “magic underpants”..... the multiple wives..... the planet (whatever its name was)......etc. It was nauseating.

Number one, they helped to re elect Obama by their constant bashing of Romney and his religion. Secondly, they probably scared more people away from Jesus than they attracted.

It is interesting because you get to see fraud happen. When we did our tallies in the evening, there were 1502 people marked who we checking in on the Electronic pollbooks but 1504 on the TSX voting machins. I was one of the ones working the pollbooks so not sure how this could have happened except maybe a couple voters quickly voted, then went back and claimed their card was inactive or didn't work, and then got a new voting card.

We also had this one lady come in with a florida ID with a Virginia address and a smudged hologram....lol..she didn't get to vote, but maybe in chicago they would have let her vote.

I hope all those who chose not to vote for Mitt Romney, whoever you are, will enjoy the new Amerika under Obama. You will probably be receiving thank you letters for giving him the opportunity to change the Supreme Court. As my many Ukrainian neighbors have said, we fled the old Soviet Union for the Heaven that is America—why would Americans choose to follow that path? As our society begins to crumble under us, I hope the struggles your children and grandchildren will endure won’t upset you too much. They’ll be living in a very different America.

I didn't stay home. I voted for George Washington.

My conscience is clear.

God will not be mocked, and he is dividing his sheep from the goats.

Mormonism IS a cult and IS trying to take over government.

It has broken my heart recently to see misled Christians here on FR defending mormonism simply because left wingers were attacking thier political candidate. Repent. Render unto Ceasar what is Ceasar's and render unto God what is God's. Mormonism is a multitheistic, brain washing, authoritarian, sexist, racist, polygamous, secret nude death oath swearing CULT with over 110 separate sects....Founded by a convicted conman who was part Bernie Madoff, part Warren Jeffs, and part Harold Camping.(BTW Romney's loss last night is one more false prophecy to add to the list).

ONLY we who have lived under it's oppressive thumb, and those who care enough to learn, truly know it. It's those who don't know what they are talking about who criticize and play the islamic/liberal "hate" card against us.

Instead of jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire last night, we stayed in the frying pan. You all should be grateful to God, you do not know what we have been saved from.

It had nothing to do with Mormomism and everything to do with racism.

Most of the congregation is Black as is this pastor. In 2008 many white families left the church due to the overwhelming support of most of the members for Obama. We were not there at that time.

Two weeks ago, my kids school (a private Christian K-6) had pastor appreciation day and hosted lunch for the pastors to have with the kids from their church.

My kids were at the table with our pastor when the school board chairman drops by and talks a bit. He held out his hand (he’s white) and compared it to the pastors (black) and my kids (chinese) and talked about what made everyone different. I have no idea what prompted this, but he is far from a racist...he has 3 adopted kids from China and Vietnam. Anyway, our pastor went ballistic and told us we should never allow our kids to go to this guys home (that would be hard, our kids are best friends with his kids) and then he proceeded to compare the guy to Jerry Sandusky. Jerry Sandusky? Really? For pointing out the truth?

Last year, after this same dinner, Mr. Pastor himself commented that he thought they seated him at the “minority table” because no one at the table was white. Our school is very small but VERY mixed racially...we have tons of internationally adopted kids that attend.

Thank goodness our conversation was interupted or there could have been a fight. I’m a bit of a pit bull and won’t let go once I get started.

I am still fuming at his comment however....

When John Thune beat out Tom ‘landslide’ Daschle in South Dakota (where my uncle lives) several years ago, people were driving in from Iowa to vote for Daschle. The locals were writing down license plates and so Daschle sued Thune the night before the election. It went to the state supreme court who got called out at midnight in a blizzard (not happy campers) who ruled that you could not write down (didn’t say video tape or take pictures) the license plates of out of state (not out of area) cars in the parking lot of the courthouse (where almost all voting takes place and didn’t say you couldn’t write them down as they were turning in). So several people, in typical South Dakota fashion, video taped the cars as they were in the parking lot then compared the numbers.

BTW, South Dakota has a voter ID law that no one has challenged. I know of one lady who makes her husband of 50 years show his ID.

I’m an Evangelical and know the Bible inside and out - do you not think that God could use an unbeliever like Mitt Romney to do His work here?

Great! We all believe in the sovereignty of God...Let me ask you something...I don't believe that Obama is particularly sensitive to doing God's will...but if what you say is so, why stop at a cultist "I'm a 'god-in-embryo' Romney"?

Are you telling us that God could use a Mitt Romney, but He absolutely can't -- as in NONE at all -- use Barack Obama for His purposes?

You show the same lame inconsistent application so many other FREEPERs have made...

(One told me how God used a pagan leader, Cyrus during Nehemiah's time...which is true...He did...but then, somehow, this poster couldn't bring himself to apply the same application beyond Romney!!!)

I’m wondering why I voted...but, I voted...anyone who stayed home, or voted for purple-lips, or third-party candidates, can now wallow in their own misery..

“And getting flamed for standing on my principles isn’t helping with the sleep factor either.”

Don’t sweat the capitulation-conservatives. More pathetic and self defeating people cannot be found. Guilt drives them, and no surprise. They have compromised and even collaborated at every turn.

I hope all those who chose not to vote for Mitt Romney, whoever you are, will enjoy the new Amerika under Obama.

#1...it's not new...Obama's already been socializing America for the past 4 yrs...in case you fell asleep or something...

#2...I hope those who chose to vote -- many for the FIRST time -- for a pro-abort liberal RINO who embraced socialist healthcare via RomneyCare will realize how scarred they've left the conservative movement...

They've proven -- again -- that we don't stand for anything...that we're the Democrats Lite...

Only the right kind of Christian, like you, is chosen and worthy. Are you sure you want to associate with those of us who are deceived by Satan?

- - - - -
I never said that. However there are CORE doctrines (about 14) that ARE required to be a Christian and ALL Christian groups agree with them. Mormons do not.

I accept and work with Christians from ALL denominations, that doesn’t change the fact that Mormons, because of their THEOLOGY, are NOT in any was Christians.

BTW, the Bible teaches that NONE are worthy. Look it up.

"Now what have you accomplished?"

She prevented the cock from crowing thrice after her vote was cast.

So did I.

The RNC has left Christianity behind, we didn't leave them. The prosperity this country enjoyed was God's shared blessing for electing OUR Christian candidates, not the other way around.

Think of this....People were praying to God, that a CULT LEADER who believes Jesus was not born of a virgin and "gods" made the earth, and that he is the savior, would win !

That's like asking a Judge to allow a child molester to nanny the Judge's children !
