    Will you vote on what they promise about the economy or do you feel that morality should take center stage in the November? Both candidates are on the economy BUT what about morality....same se*couples wanting to wed,abortion, illegal immigrantion,etc.

    God's economy is fine.:laugh: On issues of morality, we've got a pro-baby murder, same sex everything affirming anti-Christ vs the false god worshiping anti-Christ.

    Neither one deserves the votes of Christians.

    Might as well be two atheists running.

    If Obama destroys the economy and the country I am not sure morals will matter. We will have chaos!

    Obama ain't gonna destroy anything that doesn't deserve to be destroyed. When God's people are unrepentantly stuck in our wicked ways, then He needs to let the United States get exactly what it deserves and then get us out of the way before we can trip too many folks into hell with our brazen hypocrisy.

    The idea is to rid ourselves of Obama. If Romney wins and repeats his Massachussetts record, we can nominate a conservative in four years on the Republican ticket. Rand Paul comes to mind.

    Carpro, Webdog, Lady Eagle, Old Regular, others and I argued for months during the primary season about the morality of Romney in MA and his denomination rejecting Christ as God and Savior. What changed my mind about Romney is giving into the pathetic choice we are given (our own fault, as these two are a reflection of this nation). I thought long and hard about what Webdog said about electing a President and not a Priest (sorry I mean Pastor, that will cost me four hail Marys). It is hard to do so, but one can only come to this conclusion, as there are times in life where choices like this must be made. It is like choosing between an F or F+ on a report card.

    First of all, we have no business equating either party with a Holy God. I can think of nothing more disguisting than the motives of the two parties. This is the bottom line. The economy is in shambles. Romney can do no worse. He might do better. Then again, if I put one of my parakeets in the Oval Office, it could do no worse. On the morality side, you mentioned abortion, gay rights etc. There is no chance Obama will change his mind. There is a chance Romney will honor his word and follow a pro life, pro marriage policy. If he does not, he is subject to answer to us in 2016. I suppose I would say I owe thanks to Carpro, Lady Eagle, Old Regular, and Webdog for helping me see this, as much as it seems hard to do.

    No one is voting for Romney with any expectations or positive feelings, it is a matter of who is is running against. The Lord always surprises. Who knows, maybe Romney will actually win and the Lord will use him to turn this nation around. Maybe he will be one of this nation's greatest Presidents. The first step is for him to win 270 electoral votes. I can guarantee you Kentucky will give him eight.

    Perhaps, but does love compel you to take part in subjecting your neighbor to the atheist who would oppress him, or to to use your power to promote the one who would let him live in peace?

    Besides, your vote is Caesar's, and Christ would have you render to Caesar that which is his.

    Love propels me to endorse that which will let him live in ETERNAL peace.

    That's silly. If my vote is going to author confusion about my devotion to Him FIRST, then He ain't called me to render squat of a vote unto Caesar.

    Y'all are really stretching hard in your efforts to justify electing a false god worshiper.

    And the fact that so many distinguish between the two anti-Christs on one doing less harm to the country than the other really highlights why the Church, and thus the country, is in so much trouble.

    Doesn't matter because both parties are owned by the same international corporations. The choice is between being an immoral serf or a moral slave.

    I like the idea of Obama among the unemployed this November.....too bad Romney is the only other choice. 50 Miss America runners to choose from, but only 2 Presidential picks....go figure.
