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!
Are you BIGOTTED about Islam???
Take yer ball and go home?
That's no way to WIN in 2016!!
We have to start NOW!
Oh; we'll bitch and moan for a week, or month or so; then we will line up before Lucy of the RNC and let her hold the football one more time; or else we'll Throw the 'leaders' of the Republican party OUT!!!
NO one 'elected' them to THERE job; so get RID of them!
I find it amazing, that the accusers of EVANGELICALS for losing this election are the very SAME people who were so BIGOTED in the primaries when an evangelical even DARED to run!
The hypocracy of this REEKS!
You appear to have MISSED something earlier...
| Feel free to get in a last word. I have nothing more to say to you other than go screw yourself.

Oh that it would happen!!!!
Ma’am, the headline said, “Stayed Home”.
There are those who claim their religion teaches them to boycott politics. And they stayed home. My point was that you cannot reason with people who have such a religious idea. If you do, they consider it to be an attack on their religion.
They have turned, “make desciples of all nations” into “divorce society”. They have turned “seek justice for justice sake” into “stay under your bushel basket”.
Kristallnacht II is coming.
You take a sample and assume that is correct for the whole?
So; you got this info second hand; eh?
I read her comment, too. SHE said that HE said "MORMONism is a cult".
Are you going to claim HIS statement was incorrect?
That may explain WHY he said it; but the statement IS true: MORMONism is a cult.
(You don't have to be a genius to figger THAT out!!
In addition to his awful campaign, Romney was the perfect foil for Obama. He was Richie Rich, the father of ObamaCare with the personality of cardboard. Add in the fact that he wore girl jeans and you have just about all the information you need to understand his campaign. That being said, and against all of my better judgments, I did whore myself and vote for him. No signs. No donations. I didn't like him and I swore I would leave the slot blank, but at the end of the day I voted for him.
The best candidate in this very weak field was Herman Cain. What made him great for the moment was his charismatic personality. That is why I am absolutely convinced that Axelrod took him out of the equation early in the process, Herman;s own poor decisions regarding who he surrounded himself with not withstanding.
So lets stop blaming others for a loss that we can surely pin on ourselves. We have an awesome bench that will be ready to take on the 2016 challenge. Warm-ups start in 2014 when we retire Harry Reid. Time to get back to work!!
HMMmm... good point!
Why CAN't our dismayed FREEPERS say the same about Obama?
A sample allows one to make statements about probability.
My original statement was "Likely, he would have been unhappy about a Catholic candidate as well". This is based upon the pastor in question being an Obama-supporting Protestant.
If I wuz a MORMON; I would NOT disagree with ANYTHING our leaders have said.
To do so would bring the Spirit of Apostacy to my door and THAT would not be good.
So let me post what a MORMON leader has said about CATHOLICS, etal:
"Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the 'whore of Babylon' whom the Lord denounces by the mouth of John the Revelator as having corrupted all the earth by their fornications and wickedness. Any person who shall be so corrupt as to receive a holy ordinance of the Gospel from the ministers of any of these apostate churches will be sent down to hell with them, unless they repent"(The Seer, p. 255 Orson Pratt )
Then I must be doing SOMETHING right!!
Maybe; maybe not.
...would he kiss the ring of Thomas Monson?
To many Jews and Noahides (including a few here on FR, read some of Zionist Conspirator's postings), Christianity is a cult.
"One man's theology is another man's belly laugh" - Robert Heinlein.
As long as a man is honest in his dealings, I generally have no issues with his religious opinions.
