I believe there was huge anti-Morman voting throughout this election.
Well gee, my candidate didn’t win or do as I wanted so I’m going to stay home and pout!
No matter the damage to the country.
In my view, that is outright sin...and you can that THAT to the bank.
Ummm...I’m an Evangelical and I didn’t stay home. I voted, but I voted for a Conservative Christian - Virgil Goode (who was on my ballot not a write in) rather than vote for either Obama or Romney. I know several other Evangelicals who did the same.
Of all my Evangelical friends I only have ONE who stayed home and she lives in Utah so figured there was no point.
Sure, blame the Christians again. I know hundreds of evangelicals who could not wait to vote for Romney and against Obama.
Our pastor voiced concern about Romney making mormonism more mainstream.
Funny, he didn’t care when 80% of the congregation voted for Obama and his Black Liberation Theology and muslim leanings.
Voter turnout was very high in R areas and very low in D areas. The numbers make no sense.
Once again, the “I’m taking my toys and going home” crowd...
just like my kids when they were 4 years old...
I knew many who stayed home. knuckle heads a lot of them miss it.
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.

One other point, Romney would have done just as much to persecute Christians since he hates Evangelicals just as much (been there done that).
And the Gospel will not be thwarted, just as it wasn’t during the early church and the Roman persecutions.
HAVE FAITH IN GOD, NOT MAN.
Romney did not shore up his base. But it was more than evangelicals because if they stayed home 4 years ago than who stayed home this time?
Looks like a whole lot of voters stayed home.
If this article is true, it was the Mormon hating that did us in.
My pastor got up the Sunday before the election day and did a sermon on how Mormanism is a cult. I am leaving this church as I think electing a Muslim is a worse sin. I was appalled
2 Tim 2:3-4 -
3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer.
I refuse to compromise my CHRISTIAN FAITH and vote for Romney. I am beholden to my Commanding Officer - Jesus Christ alone.
How was Romney who is also not a Christian the to hold up Christian values?
I don’t think that an evangelical should feel that this loss was upon his shoulders. The GOP was not courting conservative votes in this election. They were courting independents with a left center policy, not knowing that there was already a candidate running with a far left policy that everyone already knew about.
We as a nation got what we deserve. The GOP just happened to really get what they deserved. I wonder whose “turn” it is next time.
Obama thanks you for your vote, comrade.
The GOP-e thinks Evangelicals are dumb hicks, but they surely can’t win when even a fraction of that base stays home. Perhaps they should reconsider making Evangelicals sit at the back of the bus and then expecting them to show up at the polls.
Yes, Rove, Krauthammer and Barone, I mean you.
children will be murdered, women raped, towns destroyed, perhaps widespread famine, riots, Israel destroyed, and then please go tell God you did it in HIS name?.......
you will be judged and not pleasantly, for your arrogance and your fake self righteousness....
