The Truth about Voting for Obama

There have been many arguments by some that to simply vote on one issue is lunacy, and that we need to take the broad spectrum of issues into account. However, as Randall Terry relates, not all issues are created equal. The vast amount of children that are murdered through abortion is much more important than caring for the environment, the economy, or even the war in the Middle East. There is blood on our hands and it is only through repentance, and voting correctly, that we can be washed clean.

Is it a Sin to vote for Obama for President?

(Like certain lunatics declare)

By Randall A. Terry

Founder, Operation Rescue

Before we even begin, let's try to settle if it is even a legitimate question: "Is it a sin to vote for Obama for president?" Some Christians will howl in disgust at the very question.

Other Christians will insist that we who serve the Lord Jesus Christ (from any Trinitarian Communion) should view our vote as a political expression of our faith; a part of how we seek to integrate the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, and the teachings of Christianity into public life. Hence, it is not only a valid question concerning Senator Obama and this election cycle; the principle of righteous/sinful voting is central in every election. (I.e., no devout Christian could vote with a clear conscience for an avowed racist who wanted to reinstitute slavery.)

Certain Evangelicals who declare themselves "born again" and believe the Bible is the "Word of God" (and are traditionally pro-life) have publicly embraced Obama's campaign for the Presidency. Certain Roman Catholics who claim to be devout (and are supposedly pro-life) are happily working in Obama's corner, and claiming to do so in clear conscience. Ex-Evangelical pro-life activist turned Orthodox Christian Franky Schaeffer, son of the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer, recently came out in favor of Obama, praising his "holistic theology;" all of this is in spite of the fact that Senator Obama has declared he is "pro-choice" on the "issue of abortion."

The question is: can a Christian vote for a supporter of abortion on demand with a clear conscience?

I will answer this question with three simple illustrations.

Case #1. I am in my car at a red light, and an honest looking, well dressed man comes up to my window and says: "Hi. Could you please give me a ride to the bank? I have some banking to do and my car just broke down."

I say, "Sure. Hop in." When we arrive at the bank he thanks me and exits the car. As I drive away I glance in the rearview mirror, and to my horror see him pull a mask over his face, draw a gun from his pocket, and enter the bank.

I hit the brakes, searching for a plan of action. Gunshots and screams fill the air, and the man I drove to the bank comes running out -- after he murdered the banker, and stole all the money he could carry. He flees successfully.

The question is: did I sin by giving this murderer and robber a ride to the bank?

The answer is: no. I did not sin, because I did not know his intent. He deceived me.

Case #2. I am at a traffic light. A well dressed man comes up to my window and says, "Excuse me; I'm going to rob a bank. I'll steal all the money I can, then shoot the banker so that he won't be able to testify against me at trial if I get caught. Would you please give me a ride?"

I say, "Sure, hop in…" and give this killer a ride to the bank, and he fulfills his promise.

Given those facts, have I participated in the sin of murder and theft?

The answer is: yes. In the eyes of God, and in the eyes of any court of law, I would be guilty of participating in the sin of murder and robbery, because I knew his intent.

Some will say, "But Obama is not actually killing children. He is only supporting laws permitting abortion; he is not the abortionist who kills the child." Well put. Let me give the third illustration.

Case #3. A man approaches my car window and says, "I have a friend who intends to rob a bank and shoot the bank teller. I want to keep him out of trouble, so I promised to watch out for him while he murders the banker and takes the money. If a policeman comes, I will distract him so that my friend won't get caught. Will you please take me to the bank?"

I say, "Sure. Hop in. Let's go help your friend." (On the way over, we discuss how neither of us could ever murder a bank teller or rob a bank.) We arrive and watch the murderer/thief drive up, exit his car, cover his face, draw his weapon, and enter the bank. We hear screams and gunshots. Within seconds, a policeman emerges on foot from around the corner with his gun drawn, looking anxiously for assailants or victims.

The man I gave a ride to plays his role perfectly. He jumps out of my car, yelling and pointing; "I just saw a man running down that alley with a gun in his hand and a bag he brought out of the bank!" The policeman runs down the alleyway, vainly chasing the villain who is not there.

The murderer then emerges from the bank, glances over at his friend (my passenger), nods appreciatively, gets into his car, and escapes. His friend jumps in my car and asks me to take him to the nearest coffee shop. I comply, and he exits without further incident.

Given these facts, have I participated in the sin of murder and robbery?

The answer is: yes. Since I knew the intent of the accomplice when he got in my car – even though he did not pull the trigger and take the money – I helped him and his friend accomplish their goal, and I therefore participated in the sin of murder and robbery.

In the eyes of God, and in the eyes of any court in this nation, if I knowingly help an accomplice of murder and robbery commit his crime, I am also an accomplice in that crime.

Which brings us to voting for Obama.

At the very least, Obama is an aggressive accomplice of child-killers. He has declared his intention to help child-killers murder the innocent with impunity. He has pledged to appoint judges to the Supreme Court that will sustain this holocaust for another generation.

Obama is a partner in crimes against humanity; he boasts a 100% pro-abortion voting record; he is in FAVOR of partial birth abortion, and he opposed a bill in Illinois that would require medical care for a late term baby that survives the abortion.

Let the full weight of that sink in: a late term baby girl is aborted, and survives the attempt on her life; but Senator Obama OPPOSES that doctors be required to give that resilient new-born fighter the medical care that would save her life.

Surely the demons rejoice at such loyalty to the angel of death.

The fact that Obama doesn't suck the bodies and blood of innocent human beings out of their mother's wombs, or carve out their mutilated corpses with his own hands is irrelevant. By voting to continue this holocaust, he is an accomplice to murder, and in league with hell itself.

The devil comes "to steal, kill, and destroy." Obama steals the future those children could have had for the glory of God and the good of humanity; he helps kill the innocent; he helps destroy future generations that would have come from these aborted children.

Hence, if we vote for Obama knowing his history and his intent to help murder millions of children, are we not accomplices in the crime of child-killing?

Jesus said: The Kingdom of God belongs to little children. If we vote for Obama and he wins, are we not robbing the Kingdom of God of her sons and daughters? Are we not robbers of God's plan for those children that are murdered by abortion?

Jesus said: Whatever you have done to the least of my brethren, you have done to me. The "least of his brethren" includes children in the womb. If we help child-killers, have we not turned our back on our Lord, and betrayed Jesus to the hands of his killers?

The answer to all the above questions is: yes. Any act of collaboration with the act of child-killing is a sin against God and man, the shedding of innocent blood.

The accusations of this logic being "extreme," or "myopic," or "single issue rabblerousing" or insensitive to "other important issues" are all chaff. Let the proponents of such excuses make their argument in the presence of a mountain of dead children – slain with the approval of Obama.

Don't be deceived by devilish diatribes. Abortion is murder. If you vote for Obama and try to justify your treachery, such self-deluded self-justification will bear no weight in the Courts of Heaven. God has commanded you:

Rescue those who are being dragged to death, and from those tottering to execution withdraw not. If you say, "I know not this man!" Does not he who tests hearts perceive it? He who guards your life knows it, and he will repay each one according to his deeds. (Proverb 24: 11, 12.)

If you withdraw your love and protection from the children who are being dragged to death and tottering towards execution under Obama's watchful eye, God will repay you for your deeds.

And future generations, who escaped Obama and his accessories to murder, will rise up and call you cursed; cursed for your part in slaying their sisters, brothers, cousins, classmates, neighbors, friends, spouses, bishops, pastors, teachers, doctors, priests, babysitters, policemen, firemen, engineers, and more.

A man or woman who declares that it is a sin to vote for Obama is not a lunatic; rather, he is a lunatic who declares it is not.

May God have mercy on you if you aid child-killers like Obama in their demonic mission.
