This Baptist Fundamentalist Supports Romney for President!

By Don Boys, Ph.D.
In 1960, I opposed Jack Kennedy for President because I liked Nixon’s policy positions much better and I had some concern for Kennedy’s Roman Catholicism. The media non-thinkers called us “bigots” who had that concern; but a moron knows that what a man believes will affect his actions as President. It is amazing that anyone would disagree with that. When Kennedy was elected, he did not send a telegram (remember those?) to the Pope telling him to pack for his move to America and his office in the White House would be ready for him. Of course, we did not think the pope would be coming to America but how would the new president be politically influenced by his religion? It was a very legitimate question. A deeply held religious belief will always influence a person’s actions and decisions.
President Harry Truman was a Baptist, but not a very good one; however, what he learned from his church, his grandmother, and his Bible sure affected millions of people on earth, especially Israel. When Israel declared itself a nation on May 14, 1948, Truman was the first world leader to recognize the new state (within eleven minutes of its birth!) against the advice of all his advisors except one. He did it knowing that leading Democrats and most of his close advisors and both the State and War Departments (remember that?) were against the recognition. His religion formed his decision and impacted the world. Yet fools tell us a man’s religion doesn’t matter!
Now we come to Romney. He is a Mormon and has every right to believe what he chooses. Remember that his family is and has been Mormon for generations. Of course Mormonism is a cult, and Billy Graham was way off base when he tried to “uncult” it. Neither Graham, nor anyone else, has the authority to do that. Mormonism has always been identified as a cult by even mushy Christians and I’m not sure how necessary it is to point out some of their beliefs. But I will.
Mormons believe that any human can become a god, and they teach that Adam was actually God who took on a body and this Adam-God (Michael the Archangel) had a physical sexual relationship with the Virgin Mary producing the baby Jesus (Journal of Discourses, Vol. 4, p. 218, 1857). Another bizarre doctrine of the Mormons is that Satan and Jesus are brothers. Additionally, all Mormons will have their own planets to populate with their numerous wives! While those are considered weird beliefs, they would cause no harm to our nation.
No doubt Graham’s promotion of Romney gave a clear signal for all Christians to vote for Romney. I am delighted with that result while I am dismayed that Christians would rally to a candidate simply because Graham supports him. That is the herd instinct that I have been so critical of in others. Many Christians have enormous respect for Graham’s worldwide ministry. While I respect his early preaching, clean life, and punctilious financial record, I have always disagreed with his willingness to accept support from outspoken unbelieving ministers, including Roman Catholics, in his city-wide campaigns. Most Christians will disagree with me, even questioning my motives, but I can live with that.
Christians should be informed on the issues and the Bible. No informed Christian can vote for Obama for many, many reasons. He is a compulsive liar, a man who can tell four lies in a sentence of five words–like Bill Clinton. Obama is a Muslim sympathizer (at least) who has not repudiated Sharia law. In fact, he has been unable to say, “Muslim terrorist” as if it is an untrue statement. He bows to Muslim leaders and betrays Christians, kissing our foes and kicking our friends. He is a strong advocate of abortion on demand funded by taxpayer dollars. Then he hit the bottom when he decided to publicly champion same-sex marriage.
Black Christians are fleeing Obama because of the homosexual issue. They were thrilled to have a Black in the Oval Office but cannot support him further because he climbed into bed with the perverts. Those black leaders should be congratulated for their courage. I think they should have refused to vote for him at any time under any circumstances, but that’s another matter.
It is neither fair nor accurate to compare Romney with loony Communist nuts like Jim Jones or the cultist David Koresh who was shot and incinerated along with 54 adults and 28 children by the U.S. Government for their cultic beliefs. Being weird or cultic does not justify federal murder of U.S. citizens.
Romney believes some weird things; however, he will not be our pastor, but our president. I think he is a man of character, totally honest, very intelligent, a hard worker, with unusual experiences, a strong family man, moderately conservative–all that Obama is not.
I have very close, long-time friends who refuse to vote for Romney and will cast their vote for a non-winnable candidate. They would say that their decision is based on principle but it is a flawed principle. We have always elected flawed presidents! The question is: who is less flawed and will lead America to give us a few more years of relative peace and security? I am convinced that the U.S. and the free world are going over the cliff but Obama will drive us over at 100 miles per hour. Romney may provide a respite from galloping socialism, frantic money printing, our cop-of-the-world attitude, the approaching depression followed by rampant inflation, the butchering of babies, and turning American into Sodom with Gomorrah as a major suburb.
Martin Luther declared, “I’d rather be ruled by a competent Turk than an incompetent Christian.” I would rather be “ruled” by a principled Mormon than a prevaricating Muslim.
Here is one Baptist Fundamentalist who will vote for Mitt Romney. I doubt that he will move all federal offices to Salt Lake City and make the Mormon top honcho his Secretary of State.
Come to think of it, the top honcho could do a better job than Hillary.

Wow. The level of disconnect is impressive. You sir, are a fool.

I can't help it. It is sooooo indicative of our times.

From "So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish" by Douglas Adams:

Recorded at: http://wso.williams.edu/~rcarson/lizards.html


[An extraterrestrial robot and spaceship has just landed on earth. The robot steps out of the spaceship...]

"I come in peace," it said, adding after a long moment of further grinding, "take me to your Lizard."

Ford Prefect, of course, had an explanation for this, as he sat with Arthur and watched the nonstop frenetic news reports on television, none of which had anything to say other than to record that the thing had done this amount of damage which was valued at that amount of billions of pounds and had killed this totally other number of people, and then say it again, because the robot was doing nothing more than standing there, swaying very slightly, and emitting short incomprehensible error messages.

"It comes from a very ancient democracy, you see..."

"You mean, it comes from a world of lizards?"

"No," said Ford, who by this time was a little more rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, "nothing so simple. Nothing anything like to straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."

"I did," said Ford. "It is."

"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"

"It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."

"You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"

"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."

"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"

"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?"


"I said," said Ford, with an increasing air of urgency creeping into his voice, "have you got any gin?"

"I'll look. Tell me about the lizards."

Ford shrugged again.

"Some people say that the lizards are the best thing that ever happened to them," he said. "They're completely wrong of course, completely and utterly wrong, but someone's got to say it."

"We have always elected flawed presidents!" So, we should continue to do evil so that good may come? It is precisely this kind of thinking that has lead us to where we are now, and my generation along with future generations will face the greatest repercussions. I highly doubt Christ would vote for the lesser of two evils, and we are told to flee from evil in all its forms. How much less of an evil is Romney? Well, he made over $50 million off of Stericycle, a facility that disposed of aborted babies. That's sick and wrong no matter what spiritual or political belief you have. Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for EVIL, and as children of God we need to be an example of how to abstain from all appearance of evil.

Brother, you are very mistaken, and I hope you do the research on this man you seem to endorse and the sick teachings of the Mormon church as well as its monetary influence on government. I do not support Obama either, but Romney cannot be seen as a lesser evil, just an equivalent evil. The facts support my position, and I really hope patriotism or pressure do not continue to blind you from the truth that these are abnormally sociopathic humans we have as leaders.

 How deceived can a so-called Christian be? Anyone who looks at Romney can see he is also a globalist puppet, but he is also a psychopath. Either Obama or Romney will give us WW III. If enough people voted for the same 3rd party candidate, we could keep them both out!

So often I hear the phrase "it is your duty to vote because our troops are fighting for your freedom and your right to vote" and the phrase "if you do not vote, you have no right to complain" and if any person can cast a vote with a clear conscience for either of the two main candidates I have absolutely no problem with it.

Isn't it the voters duty to hear all the candidates for an office, not only the two main party candidates but also the third party candidates and to make a qualified choice for whom they would give their vote and to vote their conscience, even if that means casting a vote for no one person.  Isn't it the duty of the electorate to at least read our founding documents and compare candidates viewpoints and past actions to them?

I am grateful for all of those brave men and women who are serving in the Armed Forces in order to preserve our freedom, however, it seems to me that more and more, because of the two-party system the electorate ends up voting not for the person of their choice but against the opposing party which is really not a vote of conscience but instead a violation of our own moral precepts and the two-party system along with the failures of the media must bear the blame.
