My opinion piece I wrote for the paper

I was wondering how people of faith can vote for the modern progressive democrats? A few planks in the democratic platform is for killing babies, same sex marriage and large government control. Did you see the huge number of people booing God when they tried to get God put back into the democratic platform? From my understanding of what I was taught and read in the bible, these stances are polar opposites of the teachings of Christ. While the republican platform is for saving all children, marriage between a man and a woman, and a small limited government that allows you to keep your money so you can help the needy locally. Do you realize that Christians helped to end slavery and to pass laws for civil rights and allowing women to vote?

 I believe if you vote for a democratic candidate, you are then complicit with their beliefs and stances which go against what is taught to people of faith. I am not trying to judge people (God does that), but trying to get people of faith to wake up to their beliefs and live their life that way.

This is a large problem facing our nation because people put moral relativism on there stances when they need to turn to the teachings of the bible. This is one of the many reasons the modern democratic party is now afraid of teaching the bible or allowing people to express their faith in public. If they allowed this free speech then the modern progressive democrats would never get elected by people of faith. People, this democratic party is not the same as your grandfathers democratic party.

I would like to end on a prayer for our elections:

Our Father and Our God, we praise you for your goodness to our nation, giving us blessings far beyond what we deserve. Yet we know all is not right with America. We deeply need a moral and spiritual renewal to help us meet the many problems we face. Help us to turn to you in repentance and faith. Set our feet on the path of your righteousness and peace. We pray today for those seeking public office. Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it. You have said, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." May this be a new era for America, as we humble ourselves and acknowledge you alone as our Savior and Lord. This we pray in Your holy name, Amen
