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!
Thanks to people like you who didn’t vote for Romney, medical rationing will be here SOON. If you’re an older person, schedule your knee replacement ASAP. My nephew & his wife in CA are thrilled about the upcoming “marriage equality”
Maybe you need a hip replacement. Don’t put it off one minute longer, or you’ll be on a waiting list. Maybe you’re just too old, according to obamacare.
To You people who think Romney isn’t good enough for you:
Do not complain about obama anymore. I don’t want to hear it.
Why do you demand that the President double as your spiritual leader?
The President's job should be to keep the bureaucracy from messing up the economy, and to keep us safe from foreign violence, and otherwise leave us alone to manage our own affairs.
I have a feeling that the Evangelicals who opposed Romney would have been similarly peeved at a Catholic, Orthodox, or Jewish candidate. Or even a candidate outside their own tiny sect.
I didn’t vote for Obama either. What part of the Electoral College to you people NOT understand??!?!?!
A vote for VG was not a vote for Romney (who is not God or a savior) nor was a it a vote for Obama!!!
Take a civics class, people!!
I think we all agree with Mormon values.
What’s your point?
Eisenhower, didn't become a born again Christian until after he was elected.
“HAVE FAITH IN GOD, NOT MAN.”
Most of us do, but too many evangelicals follow the man and not God by idolizing their preacher who tells them what to believe. Many of the mega-church preachers are getting rich off of having O in office. Beware of false prophets. A lot are starting to act like black preachers, if the preacher if wealthy then it will come back to the members.
There were several reasons I voted for Romney:
1 - He’s not a muslim & he would support Israel.
2 - He loves America & is proud of it.
3 - He is fiscally to the right of Obama.
I never expected anything on social issues other than SLIGHTLY less liberal Supreme Court justices.
I wasn’t electing a pastor. At this point, I would be content just to have someone in office who loves America and doesn’t bow to the Saudi King!
The Bible also says this:
You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Most people dont know about a lot of good deeds he has done off camera:
so basically you helped a Muslim that worships the false demon god, Allah get elected. How do you feel now?
“I refuse to compromise my CHRISTIAN FAITH and vote for Romney. I am beholden to my Commanding Officer - Jesus Christ alone.”
Welcome to the Jungle. You just voted for the Muslim...
I pay my own medical bills TYVM and it is foolish to think Romney would be any different, last month he said he was PROUD to the ‘grandfather of Obamacare’.
It isn’t my fault, it is the GOPs for throwing up Romney instead of a conservative.
Even if I had voted for Romney, it wouldn’t change the outcome, I don’t live in a swing state.
Awesome, more people need to do that. I did that several times when I lived in CA.
“The GOP-e thinks Evangelicals are dumb hicks, but they surely cant win when even a fraction of that base stays home.”
You have proven their point and also proven that you don’t believe in the Constitution. Throwing away Religious Freedom in the name of your belief is stupidity.
I don’t live in any of those states. I didn’t help and as a CHRISTIAN I COULD NOT vote for MITT or OBAMA. I would be a hypocrite if I had.
I disagree. Most conservative Christians voted against the anti-God, anti-Jew/Christian party. We don’t have statistics from the election yet. We lost due to campaign and voter fraud.
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?
You can thank the GOPe. And I am a humble sinner saved by grace. I quit feeling ‘godly’ when I was saved from the evils of Mormonism and quit trying to earn godhood for myself.
I voted for a Christian, Conservative who opposes abortion and homosexuality. Can you say the same?
Given that most of Congress’s GOP contingent held on their seats, it wouldn’t surprise me if there was a big anti-Mormon vote among Democrats, Republicans and Independents.
The Bible is filled with examples of unbelievers and very flawed individuals doing God’s work. He could have used Mitt Romney that way...and I’m just disgusted that my evangelical brothers and sisters apparently didn’t see that.
You know what? Mormonism is wrong in my opinion, but Mitt Romney is a friendly, good-spirited guy who genuinely loves America. You can’t say the same about Obamao. That alone would have made a significant difference, divine ordinance or not.
But it would be a mistake to place the blame squarely on evangelicals. It was a combination of factors:
-Romney himself for playing it safe on Benghazi, etc.
-Schools and colleges, for churning out an entire generation of leftist ideologues
-Every one of us for falling for the line that the polls were all rigged just like we did in 2008
And those are only a few off the top of my head.
IIRC one of the complaints that was filed was by a R poll watcher who was supposed to be able to observe that the tallies started at zero. She was not allowed to observe that. I strongly doubt that was an accident and I wonder how many different places that happened.
I want to see the signatures on the voter rolls and the D and R poll-watchers’ check-off lists to see what percentages of their registered voters actually voted.
