I Just Don't Get It

For the past two weeks at our church a controversy has been a brewin'. One of our pastors in his sermon two weeks ago spent some of the time talking about which candidate stood for abortion, and which candidate was opposed. In the course of his discussion, he explained what a partial-birth abortion is. He then said what I've always believed; no Christian should be voting for a candidate who is for abortion. Needless to say, some in the church were offended. The next Sunday, he preached again. This time, he apologized at the beginning of his sermon for the graphic nature of last week's sermon, and he explained that people who have had abortions can be and are forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ.

I just don't understand Christian who think that voting for Obama is the right thing to do. Just look at his record on abortion. Not only does he think abortion on demand should be available at any time during the term of the pregnancy, but he also believes that a doctor would kill a baby that is born through a botched abortion. This man is hard-core. In this election, I'm viewing myself as a loser, even if McCain wins. One area I disagree with him on is he believes in the global warming hype and thinks we need to do something about it. But when it comes to life, the man is right on the mark. Defend the innocent instead of killing the innocent.

Of all of the issues out there, this should be the top one for Christians. Our government was founded on the beliefs that there are some truths that are self-evident, including LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (more on these three at a later date).
