The 2012 Elections: The Death Knell of the Christian Right by Kevin Swanson. Engaging article and shows a lot of the flip flops of Romney on policy that matters to Evangelicals. Lot of good quotes in this but this one comes to mind:

But for the time being, I am concerned about other things besides electing the Director in charge of dismantling an empire. First of all, why are Christians so fearful and so faithless? They take their positions out of fear — fear of Obama, not fear of God. Their rhetoric is so filled with the “Fear of Obama” one would think that the beginning of wisdom in this election is the fear of Obama.

Mitt Romney Gets Real in talking about his Mormonism from 22 Words. My wife about flipped when she heard Romney’s eschatological position on where the reign of Christ would be, Jerusalem and Missouri!

Why My Conscience Won’t Let Me Not Vote For Mitt Romney by Joel Beeke. Disagree with his whole article even though I like his posts in general. The comments section was great though and heartened me that I am not the only christian who thinks this way.

The most recent TGIF by Michael Newnham. Again more strife about endtimes and the election. Great look at it though from Michael!

Why Your Friends are ‘Pro-Choice’ (And What To Do About It) by Scott Klusendorf via TGC. Great article that did not involve voting republican to convince your friends.

Rotten to the Core: Obama’s “First Time” Video and the Democratic Party by Anthony Esolen. Lest people think I am voting for President Obama, here is an article that sums up a lot of thoughts on the democratic party. Plus the as a former member of the military who has been in harms way in foreign countries, do a little research into what happened at Benghazi. It is not helpful to the current administration.

How to Grow a Moustache with Nick Offerman. And for Movember, Nick Offerman has convinced me to grow a manly moustache!

Here is a quote I need to take to heart better:

I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them: 1) To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy. 2) To speak no evil of the person they voted against. 3) To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.
