Granted there are "middle-of-the-road" issues that can be debated, but abortion is not one of them, and neither are suicide and assisted suicide. In my opinion these two issues alone are enough to compel any decent Christian to vote for the party who is for LIFE, and that party is currently the Republican Party.
Christians have a responsibility to mankind and to God. We need to defend life. We should not hide from moral responsibilities, like standing up against abortion.
Do we want men going around hitting women with sticks because they are not wearing head scarves? Of course not. So many people make Christians out to be radical nuts who dream of bringing back the Inquisition. I would not want a theocracy, but I don't want the opposite either.
Christians must defend Life. We must stand up for God's Children by voting and through direct action, like frequent protests, such as the Monthly Call for Life at MarchTogether.com.
Christian leaders must speak about evils like abortion and suicide in church, and they must encourage their parishioners to get involved in Life issues.
Pushing the R button is not enough. To many representatives run on certain platforms only to do what they want after they are in office, claiming to do the "will of the voter". We are a Republic, not a Democracy. It is shameful how many important issues are being turned over to a vote by "the people".
Would America have voted to change Civil Rights issues in the 60s? I doubt it. Things only changed because of a determined effort by our representatives in office who knew that things had to change.
Pontius Pilot is alive and well in America today. Our representatives are telling us that America is not ready to stop abortion. They look at the polls and adjust their speeches and letters accordingly. It's as if Pontius Pilate were standing up there today, washing the blood of the children who are dying off his hands.
No party is perfect, but the Republican party votes Pro-Life the majority of the time & the Democrats vote pro-abortion the majority of the time. We need to vote for those who claim to be Pro-Life and then hold them to it by making sure they vote accordingly.
Regardless of who is in office, we need to end abortion now! Almost 4,000 people die by abortion in America every single day, and that is outrageous! Every day we need to have a sense of urgency. Every day every decent God-loving and/or LIFE loving human being needs to do everything they can to stop abortion.
Unite with us once a month in the Monthly Call for Life at MarchTogether.com. It doesn't matter if you are a Pro-Life organization like The American Life League or Defend Life, or if you are a Pro-Life individual who knows abortion needs to end. We all need to unite so that our voices are heard and our presence is felt. There are only two people who know if you are doing everything you can. One is yourself, and the other needs no introduction.
Every day you can spread the word of Pro-Life Unity and encourage others to get involved. I know, most people find the topic of abortion uncomfortable. Oh well, it's not as uncomfortable to talk about abortion as it is for people who won't live today.
United we stand - Divided they die - Pass it on
