Use Your Voice – Vote

voteThere is a disturbing rumor that many people intend to stay home and not vote because of President Obama’s opinion on gay marriage.  Please note;  the President is not a minister and is not responsible for your spiritual life and beliefs.  Further, he has not forced his belief into any policies he has put forth.

Why would any woman or African-American deliberately choose to not vote?  If you don’t like the candidate for one office, you can write in a choice or skip that one and vote on all the other offices and laws that are on the ballot.

The President stated he “believes gay couples should be allowed to marry, but the decision should be up to the states”. This is not to be understood as lining up people and forcing them to be gay. ALL Christians have faults in their walk with God and judging others is NOT a Christian perspective. The President is not a minister and cannot be held to the same yardstick.

If you choose to stay home and not vote, you are committing a sin in negating the blood that was spilled to allow women and African Americans the right to vote. If you are against gay marriage, work at the state level to keep it illegal. Do not take your prejudices out against the President, and possibly your children who have to live with your inability to make a simple choice in how the country is governed.
Whatever your stand on gay marriage, being a wimp and not voting hurts everyone. It is tantamount to the people who looked the other way while your forefathers were being lynched.
Grow a pair and go vote.
