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!
Thats okay because I despise you. You, and any others that did not vote for Romney, are my enemy. You are responsible for what happens in the next four years.
I hope you, and all your sweet christian friends are miserable. In fact, I think youre just miserable people in general.
- - - - -
Well first of all, I love you because Christ commands it. Secondly, I hate to disappoint you (no I don’t) but I am far from miserable. Third, I am not responsible for the next 4 years, I didn’t support loser Romney, even in the primaries and I (and my sweet Christian friends) warned about this. I don’t live in a swing state so my vote didn’t affect the election in the least (unless you failed civics and think the US elects based upon popular vote) so even if I HAD voted for Romney, it wouldn’t change the results (my state went for Romney solidly).
Finally, it is the RINOS in the party who are responsible, we SHOULD have taken the Senate, greatly increased our lead in the House and taken the WH, but rather the GOP elite are the ones who shoved someone who is liberal and a liar and had a horrendous record down our throats because it was ‘his turn’. THEY are your real enemies.
But if it makes you feel better to hate and blame me - go ahead. I don’t care if you like me or not. I will continue to speak the truth and speak the truth boldly. Deal with it.
Oh, do you don’t know anything about mormonIsm.
I may be a nut job but I am not wrong
I am correct In what I said, I may have replyed to the wrong person
Prior to 2008, I was a “broken glass republican”, now I’m a broken glass voter.
I’d still crawl over broken glass to vote for a conservative but no political party owns my vote.

I agree but it took until this last year for me to change. You couldn’t get me to stay home on election day. Because I had to bring my mother out to our ranch, we had to drive 32 miles to vote early (at the county courthouse).
In my rural town, voter turnout was about 45%, but it wasn’t the Evangelicals or even the Protestants that stayed home, it was the Democrats (mostly Catholic and unchurched). Almost all the Republicans voted according to the election chair (my mother’s next door neighbor). The reason the dems stayed home was they didn’t like either one of them. The few Evangelicals in town (about 8%) ALL voted.
God is not and has not been standing on the Mount of Olives protecting Israel...It’s quite clear that God has used the U.S. to provide weapons and money to Israel in order for Israel to defend itself and prosper...Who can’t see that???
- - - - -
God does not need America to protect Israel, He may choose to USE America, but ultimately HE protects Israel and Israel exists at HIS good pleasure, not ours.
Who can’t see that??!?!?!
No..it is not WE that want a Marxist....it is they...the other dumb-ass brainwashed half of America whom we are yolked with. Not for long though.
I support that as so much is at stake - supreme court nominees. I used to think that the GOP was the intelligent alternative to Marxism - but seeing the anti-Mormon bigotry, I am not so sure.

As SVCW said, at least for us, it is telling the TRUTH about Mormonism, not ‘anti-Mormon bigotry’. If there is any real ‘anti-Mormon bigotry’ it is on the Dem side, because their views are often based upon ignorance. For us we speak out against Mormonism, because we know the truth and as CHRISTIANS HATE that they insult our Savior at every turn by their THEOLOGY.
Do your research before you spout off.
Rush told Romney that the Republicans are selling the opportunity to succeed with "succeed" being defined as become very wealthy in a business you start. Here is where Rush has lost touch. Very very few people care to become very wealthy. I know I don't. I'm a Christian, I'd be ashamed to be very wealthy. So how does his message resonate with anyone?
So what do we want? Real moral justice against gays, sluggards who won't work, baby killers, political deceit, those who make it unsafe for our kids to ride their bikes down the sidewalk in our neighborhoods, rampant femanism, and race baiting.
(Understatement of the day!)
You know when you put an average looking man or woman next to a very poor looking man or woman...and then have somebody "check out" the opposite-sex two men, or two woman (depending on who's looking)... 'tis a fair # of men & women out there who could make some pretty average looking fellow men or women look pretty good by comparison.
That's what we had with Obama this go-round...
Romney wasn't even "average" ... and yet, next to Obama, he was given quite a "lookover."
It was not evangelicals in particular but anyone whose faith is not accompanied by political acumen. We must have both. We must weigh the evils against each other. Unfortunate, but that’s how it is. To vote libertarian or purist or to stay home is evidence of a compartmentalized brain.
It turned out that they had no effect, specifically, on this election, but beliefs spread through the culture and make these spoilers more acceptable to a certain type.
I stopped encouraging them by attending their meetings. I wanted to hear what was going on and what they were planning, but realized I was encouraging them, even ever so slightly, by my presence. I’ve tried to stay friends with some of them but won’t go to any of their political gatherings.
That’s not evangelism or youth, that’s ignorance.
I had a Dem friend try to tell me that “neither side presented a clear viewpoint” after we had agreed not to discuss politics. She thought that was not discussing politics because the Dems tell their followers this vague stuff to use as talking points as if it were fact. Sort of like a concern troll. If she had been better informed, she would have seen right through that tactic.
“Both parties are the same” is another one, similar, that I get tired of hearing.
There are oaths; and then there are OATHS!
...the presidential campaign of Mormon Church founder Joseph Smith in 1844: Challenging Democrat James Polk and Whig Henry Clay, Smith prophesied that if the U.S. Congress did not accede to his demands that they shall be broken up as a government and God shall damn them.
Smith viewed capturing the presidency as part of the mission of the church.
Obedience is better than sacrifice.
...no need to shout.
Wow; you really must think that thing about having 'no other gods before Me' is true!
Surely GOD would not want your country to fall: the country that was FOUNDED, based on the following...
Mayflower CompactIn the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, defender of the Faith, etc.
Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620.
SURELY not voting for a
Conserv uhh... Chris... uhh mora... uhh good looking fellow as Mr. Romney would be allowed by your GOD; wouldn't it?
"...but if not...", spoken by Churchill; needed no reference given, for the hearers of his voice to instantly understand from whench it came; and just what it meant!
Sadly; we have folks who are perfectly fine with judging Mourdock for his words; and are perfectly fine with calling the SuperStorm an 'act of GOD'.
They're trying to KILL me!!!
Can't you see I'm the ONLY one left???
And what is that?
They can't even be 'true' to their own SCRIPTURE!!
According to their Second Greatest Living Prophet®...
"Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned;
and I will go still further and say, take this revelation, or any other revelation that the Lord has given,
and deny it in your feelings, and I promise that you will be damned.
Brigham Young - JoD 3:266 (July 14, 1855)
No need to look it up; I've done it for you...
"I thought the MORMONs 'bible' was "The Book of MORMON"??
For the uninformed, the BoM contains hardly anything that can be called the rules and regulations that they supposedly live by.
The D&C as well as the Pearl of Great Price are ALSO considered to be 'scripture' to MORMONism.
Moreover, the 'sacred' rituals performed in their secretive temples are to be found NOWHERE in ANY of their 'scripture'.
