Same-Sex Unions and Child Sacrifice
McCain and Obama Analyzed by The Judeo-Christian View
Answering the tough question on human life and human rights may be "above [a certain presidential candidate's] pay grade," but it's part of what we call upon our leaders to do. How a person believes and votes on life and sexual-orientation issues is a barometer for other beliefs and an indicator of possible future actions.
I'm no lawyer, just a dirt-scratching aardvark cum
parish pastor. However, the legal wonks from The Judeo-Christian View
inform us that even when we're dressed in our Sunday- (or Sabbath-) go-to-meeting clothes, "Pastors, rabbis and priests are free under both the Constitution and the tax code to preach Biblical ethics and morality, to name names of politicians, and to explain their public policies to congregants. Despite widespread misreporting and intentional distortion by opponents of religious liberty and free speech, no church has ever lost its tax exempt status for any such activity."
1. Who waffled on rights and protection for the unborn? Who stated categorically that conception begins one's humanity?
2. Should a baby survive an abortion and start drawing breath on his own, which candidate refuses to consider even this child as a rights-endowed citizen?
3. We also elect leaders to promote domestic tranquility, which includes stable families headed by fathers and mothers. Which presidential candidate wants to force the states and individual citizens to accept homosexual "marriages"? Who favors the Defense of Marriage Act?
4. Our elected leaders also provide for the national defense, which includes building and maintaining a strong military and doing everything possible to enhance morale. How would morale be affected if men an women were housed in the same quarters with no special provisions for privacy? Why? How different would it be if we mixed self-avowed homosexuals with heterosexual men and women with the same disregard for privacy?
Again I quote the legal opinion from The Judeo-Christian View
: "Email your flock to go now to the website, urging them to see the powerful videos and possibly join you in subscribing. Email in your personal capacity, or as religious leader (either way is fine legally). Contact your flock by auto-dialer, or put a prayer alert on your phone trees. But, by any or all of these means, be a Good Shepherd
of your sheep and a Faithful Watchman

Any right- or left-wing feedback? Ministers, have you spoken on politics this year? Will you before next week's elections?
