Vote for my post on Mom Blog Network

Political Blog

You're not going to see me write alot of political blogs because everyone has their own opinion and I think alot of people get too riled up about politics, especially on the internet. Anyway I've chosen my candidate as I'm sure you've chosen yours so I don't want to talk about their platforms, agendas or flaws.

But I do want to talk about voters, Christians and "God's will".

I've heard alot of people say, "I'm praying that the will of God be done in our country." Which in and of itself is great, if that is truely what you are praying for. Personally, I am going to vote for Obama (I've done my research and made up my mind and you probably won't get me to debate the issue so don't bother) but ultimately I am praying that God will enable to right leader for our country to rise above the others. (weather that be Obama or McCain). I will probably be disappointed if Obama doesn't win but I will accept that God has choosen McCain to run this country for now. If you are a Christian and truely want the will of God I think it's wrong to say, "I'm praying that the will of God be done in our country BUT if a certain candidate becomes president then obviously the will of God hasn't been done." Basically, you're saying maybe we didn't pray hard enough because surely God wouldn't want that other candidate to be president. Which translates, "God's will should be what I WANT".

I think God is big enough to handle our country's silly election. Granted it's run by sinful men and there will alway be conflict and strife but the laws weren't made to "Christianize" or "moralize" everyone they were made to maintain some sort of order in a sinful world.

That brings me to another point which we can discuss later but for now think about this... I am morally ProLife but think that abortion should be legal?

Just a few things to think and pray about...

we must talk...not debate. But your vote surprises me for some reason. I can honestly say I don't LOVE either candidate...it will simply be a vote for control of the senate for me but I am truly interested to hear why you lean toward Obama enough to blog about it. I do really just want to know. A good lunch convo maybe?

J, as a social worker, I definitely had to figure out my stance on abortion. Through an ethics class at UNC (go figure), I realized that I am definitely pro-life. However, I also do not necessarily think outlawing abortion is the correct way to help women who are facing unwanted pregnancies.

I do not ever think abortion should be for birth control.

I do think women can find themselves in very difficult situations through no fault of their own. I would PREFER if a woman were to give up a child for adoption if she can't raise it. But there are certain things about our social structure that make carrying, birthing, and raising a child very difficult for some people. I'm not convinced punishing women who make that choice is the best way to help redeem the world.

But then again, what do I know?

And my political affiliation is out there for the world to see, so I'll leave that alone.

I have to say I'm very surprised, but you're right about God's will. :)

Jess, I am surprised that people are surprised about your choice. You're an educated lady with good sense, so I know that you thought a lot about the vote before making your decision. I, personally, support Obama as well, and believe in a government which does not rule on moral issues.
