Is the President America's Pastor in Chief?
Against the backdrop of "can I vote for a Mormon?" unease among many religious voters, the Romney campaign has downplayed the relevance of religion for the presidency. We're told not to worry about a candidate's faith because the President is not a "pastor in chief." In 2012, that may be a politically savvy truism, but is it really true?

With a Mormon challenging President Obama, a Protestant, several Christian leaders have urged voters to consider credentials instead of creed. Franklin Graham spoke for many when he told ABC News: "Listen, we're not voting for the 'pastor in chief' of the Unites States. We're voting for the President. We're looking for the person that is the most qualified, a person that shares common values, a person that loves the country, a person who can lead this nation out of the economic mess that we've gotten ourselves in, and that's I thinkthe main thing for most people ...

And so the Lord said to Samuel, "Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. ...
... Now therefore, heed their voice. However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them." ..

No White Protestants in Top Political Jobs

"With the choice of Paul D. Ryan to be the Republican vice- presidential nominee, not one person in a group of top political jobs — the presidential and vice-presidential nominees of both parties, the Supreme Court justices, the speaker of the House or the Senate majority leader — is a white Protestant. That group instead comprises nine Catholics (six justices, Mr. Ryan, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Speaker John A. Boehner), three Jews (on the court), two Mormons (Mitt Romney and Senator Harry Reid) and one African-American Protestant (President Obama). For much of American history, white Protestants dominated the top rungs of American government."

"The Liberal in Chief"

Quote;
"There is no official hierarchy in the American civil religion, but as the nation's head of state as well as its chief executive … the president has acted as its de facto pope." (Prof A.Preston)

Pope Obama has introduced some new "religious" ideas into administration. One of yesterdays articles pointed out that 250 sodomites and their weird gender-bender friends were brought into the "Leadership" and "governance" of America. Now that should have effects on the administration of the American people. God and Satan will see to that.

But it is the chicken and egg theory isn't it? Which came first?
Was it America turned queer and the government followed?
Or was it that the politicians legislated that the Bible law and precept was irrelevant and the queers came out of the woodwork?

ps. Wonder if the "church" ever gets involved in the politics of Bible revisionism?

We must remember as Christians our calling and identity is with king Jesus and His kingdom, which is not of this world... This means we do not look to any political leader here on earth as our only hope to change this nation. Jesus is our only hope and before any nation can ever be turned around it must begin from the bottom up... From within... We must get outside our cozy comfort zones and begin proclaiming the true biblical Gospel to lost people for the glory of God, and when this happens hearts will begin to change and its then that we will see revival in the land. Now I'm not saying we shouldnt ever vote because we, unlike generations past have that ability, but we should never vote based on the fallacy of the lesser of two evils... If your conscience will not let you vote for either candidate than you are not obligated to do so... Vote for king Jesus and go tell lost people what he has done.

Yes and this election looks much like "A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance."

If a Christian runs, I will choose him. Otherwise, I will choose not to decide.

Before when vote we ought be asking God to give us a true Christian for president.
Please don't throw around that word; it weakens it's power.

Believing those things is heretical; voting for someone who does is not.

The way I see it, we have Obama, whose religious and practical affinities are clear and have been discussed by many a member here.

Then we have Romney, who, while also heretical in his views, is more conservative and altogether closer leaning than Obama, particularly on the two hot-button issues of our day: abortion and gay marriage.

Finally, we have Ron Paul, who has all but withdrawn from the race.

While nobody here agrees with Romney's theology, if we have a desire to vote, and to vote in such a way that has any weight (if the electoral college has left that option, that is) then sad to say Mitt Romney is our best bet.

Pastor in chief? Does that mean we should vote based on the candidates theology? Would it be better to re-elect someone who is pro-abortion, pro-homosexuality, pro-sharia and socialist? Doesn't take too many brain cells to figure that one out.
