Jesus For President ?
Throughout the Republican primary, fundamentalists looked desperately for an alternative to Willard. They even backed some very strange candidates like Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, and serial-adulterer Newt Gingrich to avoid supporting Willard. But Willard won the nomination, and now a lot of fundamentalists are tossing out their teachings, holding their noses, and backing Willard -- but not all of them.
Some of the die-hard fundamentalists have created their own website called Vote for Jesus -- and that is exactly what they are urging their fellow fundamentalists to do. They want people to write in the name of Jesus for the office of president, rather than vote for Obama or Willard. Here is some of what they say on that site:
So who is a Christian to vote for with a clear conscience? The answer is simple...JESUS!!!
I am encouraging true followers of Jesus Christ to say NO to satan and say YES to Jesus! This November, write in the name JESUS for President! The option will be several third party candidates. Sadly, no candidate outside of the two major parties have any chance at winning the election. So rather than vote for a third party candidate, write in the name of Jesus for President.
Your vote for JESUS is not helping President Obama get re-elected, nor is it helping Mitt Romney get elected, it is telling satan you will not be responsible for either of his tools becoming our next President! Men need to quit looking to men for answers, but to the Lord!. . .
We can do that this November, taking a real stand for God and His Truth by writing in the name of JESUS for President.
Now this may sound like a joke to some. After all, a person who's been dead for 2000 years could hardly serve if elected (if he ever existed at all). But some people are taking it seriously. So far, about 1,594,018 have signed up at the site and pledged to write-in Jesus for president. That's not anywhere near enough to win the election, but if the election is as close as some polls say it is, it's a million and a half votes that Willard can't afford to lose.
I don't know if these people will follow through on their pledge, but if just half of them do it could hurt Willard. Personally, I hope all of them keep their word.
