“Resisting Romney's Religion Reelects
Ramesh C. Reddy
an Evangelical Christian, I resisted Republican presidential
candidate Mitt Romney’s nomination because of him being a Mormon but
the alternative choice of reelecting President Obama is so ominous!
I have usually made ‘Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Personal
Savior’, as a primary criteria in choosing who to vote for but this
is the first time that criteria will not influence my decision to
support and endorse Romney to be the next president of the United
The reasoning is because though Romney has not accepted Jesus Christ
as his Lord and Personal Savior, his moral values are in line with
the Bible as opposed to Obama’s ominous, outrageous, outgoings.
Romney has opposed gay marriage while Obama has given his support
for the legalization of gay marriage and the repeal of the Defense
of Marriage Act (DOMA). It must be noted that when Obama ran in
2008, he opposed gay marriage and supported DOMA due to religious
Obama’s initial reason for being against gay marriage was because of
his religious beliefs in what the Bible says regarding marriage:
"But at the
beginning of creation God made them male and female. For this reason
a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,
and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but
one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one
separate." (Mark 10:6-9, NLT)
Obama had stated in an interview “that he
and his religion personally define marriage as between a man and a
Now, before the November 2012 presidential election, Obama comes out
in favor of gay marriage. He even told the Department of Justice
(DOJ) not to oppose challenges to the DOMA act signed into law by
then President Bill Clinton.
Obama claims to be a Christian but his view regarding marriage is
totally opposed to biblical values. Romney claims to be a Mormon but
his view regarding marriage is totally in support of biblical
It is unconceivable how Obama who claims to be a Christian can so
outright go against Scripture willfully and deliberately without any
repentance regarding homosexuality.
“They traded the truth about God for a lie...Even
the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead
indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of
having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each
other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of
this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.”
(Romans 1:25a-27, NLT)
This is what our president of the United States is endorsing when he
supports same-sex marriage as opposed to his original support of
marriage between a man and a woman only.
When it comes to supporting the defense of marriage between man and
a woman, Romney is the clear choice.
Romney has opposed abortion, the holocaust of the unborn but Obama
supports the holocaust of the unborn.
Why call it a holocaust?
Because just as my precious Jewish brothers and sisters were
annihilated because the evil Hitler and the Nazis saw them as
unwanted, resulting in the holocaust of thousands of Jewish people,
thousands and thousands of unborn have been annihilated and continue
to be annihilated because they are unwanted resulting in the
holocaust of the unborn.
Obama supports this annihilation in the name of Pro-Choice going
against biblical values. Romney opposes this annihilation in the
name of Pro-Life supporting biblical values.
“There are six things the Lord hates—
seven things he detests: haughty
hands that kill the innocent,
heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness
who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.”
(Proverbs 6:16-19, NLT)
“Rescue those who are
unjustly sentenced to die;
them as they stagger to their death.
Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.”
For God understands all hearts, and he sees you.
He who guards your soul knows you knew.
He will repay all people as their actions deserve.
(Proverbs 24:11-12, NLT)
Obama is not intent on saving the unborn who are unjustly sentenced
to die and not supportive to save them as they stagger to their
death. On the other hand, Romney is.
Obama claims to be a Christian but his view regarding abortion is
totally against biblical values. Romney claims to be a Mormon but
his view regarding abortion is in support of biblical values.
When it comes to supporting the life of the unborn, Romney is the
election is not just about two issues but these hot button issues
are the most moral based issues that makes me support Romney as the
clear choice even though I am an Evangelical Christian.
Obama is dangerous because though he claims to be a Christian, his
willful deliberate actions do not show us the fruit of his Christian
faith. Yes, no Christian is perfect but when we go against the
Bible, there is something known as confession and repentance. We
don’t see that in Obama. It seems like he is so consumed with power
that the world gives him, he has forgotten the Creator of his soul
and what he wants him to do.
Jesus said, ‘What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world
and yet loses his soul?”
He claims to have tasted Christianity but he has not digested the
moral values of the Bible.
“Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have
received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice
that will cover these sins. There
is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging
fire that will consume his enemies.
(Hebrews 10:26-27, NLT)
Since Obama claims to be a Christian, he has knowledge of the truth
regarding gay marriage & abortion. Yet, he wants to support laws
that go contrary to the law of God.
A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad
tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a
bad tree can’t produce good fruit. So every tree that does not
produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Yes,
just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify
people by their actions. “Not
everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom
of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in
heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord!
We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and
performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never
knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’ (Matthew
Franklin Graham, the son of renowned and world famous
Evangelist Billy Graham said,
marriage, the president supports “a position against God, and my
father feels he has an obligation to speak out against that kind of
wickedness.” ”The president has made a choice,” he said. “My father
has made a choice: At 94, he has chosen not to be quiet anymore.”
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
took out an ad in the U.S.A Today, Wall Street Journal, and
York Times from Billy Graham that read,
“I realize the election could be my last.
I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for
candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and
support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who
protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of
If you read that ad, the clear choice is Romney over Obama!
We have Obama who is for the willful breaking of God’s laws when it
comes to moral issues of marriage and abortion while we have Romney
who wants to uphold these moral issues.
For me morality is the number one reason, I choose to cast my vote
for Romney over Obama. When morality is addressed, all other issues
will fall in place. When morality is taken lightly and given the
back burner then all other issues will falter too.
“When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples
easily. But wise and knowledgeable
leaders bring stability.”
(Proverbs 28:3, NLT)
Regardless of your religion or race, if you put a high value on
morality and biblical values, please join me in voting for Romney
“Certainly there were many needy widows in Israel in Elijah’s time,
when the heavens were closed for three and a half years, and a
severe famine devastated the land. Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them.
He was sent instead to a foreigner—a widow of Zarephath in the land
of Sidon. And there were many lepers in Israel in
the time of the prophet Elisha, but the only one healed was Naaman,
(Luke 4:25-27, NLT)
You need to ask yourselves why did Jesus say that to the leaders?
I believe, though the widow of Zarephath and Naaman the Syrian were
foreigners, both Elijah and Elisha who were Jewish prophets were
sent to these foreigners over their own because they accepted them
and their values.
In the same way, though Romney is a foreigner to the faith of Jesus
Christ and Obama is not, Romney deserves our help in getting elected
over Obama’s ominous, outrageous, outgoings because Romney intends
to uphold the most cherished biblical values of the sanctity of
marriage and sanctity of life.
As a registered independent voter, I am proud to stand with Graham
to endorse Romney for president of the United States. Graham has
never endorsed a presidential candidate to my knowledge so Graham’s
endorsement of Romney shows how ominous Obama has become by going
against God and His values regarding the sanctity of marriage and
the sanctity of life.
“It was a privilege to pray with Gov. Romney — for his family
and our country,” “I will turn 94 the day after the upcoming
election, and I believe America is at a crossroads. I hope millions
of Americans will join me in praying for our nation and to vote for
candidates who will support the biblical definition of marriage,
protect the sanctity of life and defend our religious freedoms,”
stand with Pittsburgh Standard to show your support for Romney this
November 06, 2012.
Ramesh C. Reddy believes voting for moral
issues will trump all the other issues because with morality will
come blessings in other areas.
