The mainstream media has so much fun blaming Christians for the ills of the world, why don’t we join in? This time Christians might really be at fault:
The Rev. Franklin Graham has a message for Christians who are unhappy with the results of the 2012 presidential election: You only have yourself to blame. In a recent interview with CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody, Graham said that the majority of Christians simply don’t vote — inaction that has dire consequences in local and national elections, alike.
“What is your message to folks who are wondering what just happened, and it looks like they feel a semi hit them?,” Brody asked the faith leader, clearly referring to the aftermath of the 2012 presidential election.
Graham responded by noting that, based on statistics he’s seen, the majority of Christians do not vote in America. With a dearth of evangelicals heading to the polls, the son of the famed Rev. Billy Graham said that the responsibility for an Obama re-election win is on Christians’ shoulders.
Graham doesn’t need to tell us how to vote. By now it is abundantly clear that Barack Obama — with his emphasis on promoting degeneracy, abortion, authoritarianism, and mass theft — is the political personification of evil. It is the duty of the morally sane to do all in their power to stop the Democrat Party; the starting point is voting and making sure others do too.
But voting will have to wait for 2014. In the meantime, our job is not to succumb to apathy and despair.
