We now have about three months before the November 6th elections. These will obviously be highly consequential elections for the future of our country. On November 7th you and I will not be able to go back and “do more” to affect the outcome. That means we all have to put our money where our mouths are right now and as often as we can between now and late October. I have created a page on the ActRight website that will allow you to make credit card contributions to a number of candidates and ballot issues while only having to enter your information one time. You can pick and choose who to give to and how much. Please take advantage of this and pass the link on to your friends.
I have put the four Protection of Marriage initiatives on top for a reason. Same Sex Marriage cases are headed to the Supreme Court right now. Big wins for these popular initiatives this November will make the Court think twice about “discovering” a right to same sex marriage in the Constitution. Ambiguous results will encourage them to do what I think they are inclined to do, which is impose same sex marriage on the whole country by fiat.
A Republican victory in the Presidential, Senatorial, and Congressional races is critical to halting and possibly reversing the downward spiral of our nation. We are rapidly approaching moral and economic collapse, dramatic military decline, and the creation of a much more dangerous world. Even if you are lukewarm about Romney and other Republicans they are infinitely better than the alternative. As former Secretary of defense Rumsfeld might say, you go to war with the Republican Party you have, not the Republican Party you would like to have.
The root cause of our decline is not the weakness of the Republican Party. It is the weakness of the Church and her teaching. The Church and her pastors must rediscover the full gospel of the comprehensive Lordship of Jesus, laying aside compromise and the fear of man. Only then will we see a reversal of this baneful decline.
