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!
It is not because Romney is a Mormon. It is because the American church is a haven of progressive socialism.
Look at the movement called “emergent church” Almost all protestant churches are leading their people in these ways.
Read her post.
“Obama does. / You got any PROOF of this assertion?”
You DOUBT Obama HATES America? Why? Did you notice his Apology Tour? Did you notice his bowing? Did you notice his love for our enemies and his hatred for our friends? Have you noticed his rejection - public and proud - of everything America stands on?
“...but the LDS church never put out a contract on me. / You were lucky...”
Ummm...the Mountain Meadows Massacre occurred a little while ago. No, I didn’t live in Utah during the mid-1800s. I’m not that old.
To give greater weight to something that happened 150 years ago than to what happens daily under President Obama indicates you are delusional!
“The more you talk, the more you give the impression that you’re a closet Obama supporter.”
Yep. It seems Elsie was happy to have Obama get re-elected. She hasn’t noticed his hatred for America. Hasn’t noticed his policies. Hasn’t noticed anything except MITT IS MORMON! AAHHHHH!!!!!! VAMPIRE MITT!!!!!!
I lived in Utah for 7 years. I debated my beliefs with a LOT of Mormons. But no, I never had a Mormon try to murder me. I witnessed to Mormon FRIENDS.
I would gladly give witness to my faith to Obama, but I don’t think I could ever be friends with him. And yes, I’m far more comfortable with Mormons in the USA than with Muslims. I’ve also been in Muslim dominated countries, and want nothing to do with that!
Getting along is not the point. Getting behind the Constitution and making religious prejudices secondary to defending that Constitution is the point. Let the National Socialist Democrat Party take away the Constitution and your religious beliefs will be reduced to cold ashes by these socialist asses. They count on splitting conservatives along religious lines as well as economic and racial lines; they’ve been relatively successful at it.
Horrible movie! I wouldn’t want my name related to anything to do with that waste of a film.
I think 10/10 voters are morons - yes.
If youre so offended by Evangelicals, what are you doing on a site that is evangelical in nature? Trolling?
You said F’m evangelicals. You’ve been avoiding my questions, obfuscating, not answering. Your purpose is to separate conservative christians from their principles. You are no conservative. What are you doing on this forum?
I’m offended by crackpots who stayed home and gave Obama second term - yes.
F them all whoever stayed home knowingly giving obama second term.
the people who are here were actively supporting a candidate by campaigning for him/her? Where? online?
We campaigned for our candidate in her district .... speaking only to people who could vote for her. Why go online?
I didn’t hear many who campaigned. Most on here said they were voting and then going home to await the results on Fox News. Gee, I will tell the old lady I was with who got blisters ... “next time, no campaigning. Just be a spectator.” There is another woman, 103-years old, in town who does more campaigning than the average Freeper.
And this article was about people who stayed home because of religious beliefs.
You said, explicitly: Screw the Evangelicals F em all. Ban me for all i care.
FR is not a GOP website. But it is basically an evangelical, pro-God website. So was that your opus? Are you here to pound down christians in the name of the GOP, because some of them didn’t vote for your GOP-elitist snob liberal?
The ones who stayed home - yes. Same w the paulbots and gary johnson voters.
Thanks for Obama!
Annie Annie Annie.......you didn’t vote for obama because he is a muslim - you ignorant bigot~!
And the more you talk the more you give the impression you are a closet moron.
Sorry but, I haven't been able to figure out what your reply was intended to convey.
You were able to vote 65 million times..........high five!!!
I did; just now.
I missed it earlier.
Those ARE valid reasons to look for someplace new; I guess; instead of praying for the misguided leader and trying to educate him.
As even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then; MORMONism is STILL a cult.
The old "everybody knows it" defense.
