Vote Your Conscience and Your Values

Posted by thelamp on October 18, 2006

Media and political analysts are speculating that values voters are discouraged and may not show up at the polls. A strong turnout of Christian voters can prove them wrong.

People of faith struck a nerve in the 2004 presidential election. Supporters of traditional moral values initiated a momentum that must not falter now. Here’s an example of why voting is so important: On Oct. 10, the U.S. Supreme Court decided not to hear a challenge against the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

That means states have the right to define marriage the way they see fit, and aren’t bound to recognize same-sex marriages from other states.

“There is no fundamental right to same-sex marriage in the United States. Marriage is the union of one man and one woman,” said Pastor Rod Parsley, founder and President of the Center for Moral Clarity. “That’s the way it has always been in this nation, and I’m extremely grateful to the U.S. Supreme Court for upholding states’ rights to ban same-sex marriages from other states.” (Click here to read Pastor Parsley’s statement to the media.)

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision is encouraging news as Election Day approaches because voters in eight states have marriage questions on their ballots. It’s reassuring to know those votes really do matter. Keep in mind that in the 2004 election, more than 25 million churchgoing Christians failed to vote. So, encourage everyone in your sphere of influence to vote this year.
