Election 2016 the long-term consequences for Christians in America will be devastating depending on the outcome of the vote. The next president will nominate at least 2 new Supreme Court Justices.
Who we elect in this election will change the face of America well into the next generation! There is too much at stake for Christians in this election if they do not cast their ballots with a well informed conscience. Sometimes a lesser good must be chosen to prevent a greater evil. This 2016 election is one of those times.
In this election we also have two independents running that are clamoring for disillusioned voters from both parties. The race is close between Trump and Hillary if you put a 3rd party candidate in the mix Hillary wins for sure. Those Christians who vote independent or third party and those who do not vote will start the ball rolling that will elect a president who will persecute the Church.
This Election is Eerily Similar to 1992 election when Ross Perrot ran as an Independent
He was the last major independent presidential candidate to gain significant traction in an election and in 1992 won nearly 20 million votes (roughly 19 percent of the nationwide popular vote). He successfully divided the conservative Republican putting Bill Clinton into office as the 42nd President of the United States by a wide margin in the Electoral College. Clinton received 43 percent against Bush’s 37 percent.
I still wonder if Ross Perrot wasn’t a smoke screen candidate put there by the upper echelon elitists. Was he paid to run for the office in order to better the chances for Democratic Victory? We will never know. This 2016 Election is eerily similar to 1992. We have another independent candidate; Evan McMullan stepping into the mix in this election and another from the Green Party. Both are out there fishing for the disillusioned voters from both parties. We are looking at another set up similar to the 1992 and another Clinton, will likely gain office if the same scenario repeats itself with Christian Voters.
Evan McMullin’s campaign may have the same effect as Ross Perrot on conservative voters but the long-term consequences for Christians in America will be devastating as the next president will nominate at least 2 new Supreme Court Justices.
Without a conservative court the future of Christians in our country for the next generation is bleak. We will be forced to bow to the homosexual agenda or lose everything. Laws that favor Islam on our once Christian Nation, may be passed turning the tables against Christians. This is already beginning to take place! We need a conservative court!
Election has High Stakes on Crucial Moral Issues
Recently I was told by a good friend that I will sin if I vote for Trump. She told me that McMullin was the only moral choice and if everyone voted for him that is Christian we would win. “Really?” I replied, “ Well, that is an idealistic outlook but not very realistic!” She is a dear soul who sees good in everything. However realistically, people being what they are, we will never get enough people to defeat Hillary if you divide the Republican Party. It was tried in the past and disillusioned conservatives elected Bill Clinton when they cast their ballots for Ross Perot!
There are very high stakes in this election on crucial moral issues which the media ignores. Does that surprise you? Out of site out of mind! I will certainly will not sin by voting for Trump even if another 3rd party candidate proves to be morally a better candidate! A well informed conscience with common sense allows you to vote for the lesser evil even over a present good, if a future greater evil can hope to be prevented. Persecution of the church (by appointing liberal Supreme Court justices), is a future greater evil if Hillary is elected.
A recent LA Times article stated Trump is gaining in the polls. http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/trailguide/la-na-trailguide-updates-trump-gains-ground-against-clinton-1471817853-htmlstory.html A third party vote or worse those who do not vote at all will do the country and the church irreparable harm. The future consequences of an uninformed or indifferent vote will be a disaster for Christians and the Church.
“What if Trump doesn’t keep his promises?”
Granted Trump often acts like a loose cannon, having a bombastic uncultured tongue that betrays a touch of narcissism. However he has promised the nation to elect conservative judges to the Supreme Court. “What if Trump doesn’t keep his promises?” I hear many asking. Well I repeat get out and Vote for a Republican house and Senate. If Trump oversteps his bounds there is impeachment. The government has checks and balances! If Hillary is elected we will also need Republicans to do what they can to prevent further erosion of the constitution under the Democratic Party.
Disillusioned or Indifferent Christians
Then there are good disillusioned Christians whose conscience object to either candidate and plan to abstain from voting. They will also cast a vote for Hillary. If you abstain from voting you are hurting the country and ultimately the church and her Religious Freedoms. You will be responsible for ushering in the platform that will begin the persecution of Christians and the Church.
Election 2016 Consequences for Church & Families
The church will eventually be forced to bow to the homosexual agenda and will have to stop adopting babies because we will have to give our children to unnatural unions. We will be forced to have abortions in Catholic hospitals or shut down. Health care for Catholic institutions will be required to purchase contraception for employees and pay for abortions or the church will have to get out of providing Health Care. Lawsuits will likely send many to prison if they want to Keep the Faith. The list goes on. Hillary has already pushed for all of these with Obama Care. The church cannot betray Christ in these situations we will not provide these services we will shut down.
Recently the Little sisters of the poor won a battle with the Supreme Court. We know the next president will appoint at least 2 new justices and who they appoint will have an effect on the country into the next generation. When similar cases come before a new liberal leaning court it may not end so happily for the church. The government persecution of the church will indeed follow with a liberal Supreme Court
Christians Wake Up!
I repeat what I said in the beginning; Sometimes a lesser good must be chosen to prevent a future greater evil. This election is one of those times. The burden of guilt will fall on the idealist voters without common sense who do not vote or vote 3rd party ot allivate an aching but uninformed conscience.. G. K. Chesterton was right when he said: We know when a nation or society is in decline or decay when common sense becomes uncommon.”
You will not sin to vote for Trump as I had been told. He promised to give us a conservative supreme court. I will vote for Him on that promise! However one may sin knowingly casting an uninformed vote and not considering future consequences of an uninformed imprudent vote. Another candidate may morally be the better man or woman however as a priest recently said; ” We are not voting for the pope we are voting for a president!”
We will never get a majority to vote an independent candidate into office. Christians who think so are living in an illusion a dream. What they fear will indeed take place. They will divide conservative Republicans when every vote counts in this election. Yes, Pray but above all think before you vote. Come on, use your God given common sense!
May God have mercy on America, Let us Pray!
