As a Christian, would you vote for a presidential candidate based on his Religion?


I have heard christians choosing not to vote in the presidential election because Romney is Mormon and Obama supports same sex marriage, and abortions which are contrary to the Word of God and Christian values. Just curious to see if this is a decision throughout the Christian community. Not asking who you are voting for, just your opinion on this and if you agree with it,

    Just curious, since it is now a demonstrable fact, via DNA, that homosexuality is genetic and not a choice, which means God has made certain people homesexuals and therefor wants them that way; how does that square with your homophobia?

    I understand what you're saying. My understanding is that in order to be a great politician, you have to be an even greater liar.

    Regrets will simply be avoided if we do not vote altogether. Let's face it: no matter who the candidates are, they will still fall short in one aspect or the other.

    You are absolutely correct. It should apply to anyone you have contact with and especially the leaders of our country. Thanks for your comment.

    Absolutely. The issues should be the determining factor in your voting decisions. Nobody will agree 100% on everything, I don't think. Good answer. Thanks for taking the time.

    Is it fair to say we shouldn't take your complaints about policies either Party institute seriously since you chose not to vote and be one of those John Adams worried about when he said Republicanism survives so long as the populus remains virtuous?

    That's so my position. Couldn't have said it better myself. A farce, a game, a charade. Nice answer that I had to vote up.

    Wow Jo, not too fired up are you? :) Appreciate you taking the time to share your feelings on the subject. I see you asked about voting for the anti-christ and sealing our fate. You do realize that all in the bible must come to pass no matter what!?

    Hi Trish. Thanks for your response. I agree, religion should not be a determination for hiring someone for a job. Isn' that called discrimination. Thanks again.

    I disagree, brother. I don't see anywhere in the Bible where it says we should not get involved in politics. As a matter of fact, I think it would be good if more "honest" Christians were politicians. Then we could influence our society for good more
