Q & A: WHO WOULD JESUS VOTE FOR?

8/20/04

 

Issue: Bush should not be asking churches to run voter registration drives. Ministers should not endorse a particular presidential candidate.

 

Question:  Who would Jesus vote for?

Answer:  Jesus would endorse the more moral man.

 

Argument:  Bush taking America to war with Iraq was wrong.

Response:  Bush's war with Saddam was the removal of a government that threatened the safety of our own nation; a government that was willing to harm the United States and collaborate with other people who wanted to attack America as well as other nations.  This threat has been recognised not only by President Bush, but also by President Clinton, John Kerry, unanimously by the U.S. Congress, and by the U.N. in Resolution 1441 and preceding resolutions.  If you do not know this yet, you haven't been listening to News Talk Radio enough.  President Bush's justification for a preemptive war is, "Terrorists and terror states do not reveal these threats with fair notice in formal declarations.  And responding to such enemies only after they have struck first is not self defense, it is suicide."  If you disagree with this policy and justification, the result could be hundreds of thousands of lives.  That is irresponsible.

 

Argument:  Bush killed innocent civilians in the Iraq war.

Response:  George Bush made it clear in a public address viewed by the world on March 17, 2003 and again on the 19th that the target in this war was not the innocent civilians of Iraq, but that it was the dictator and government of Iraq.  He said, "I want Americans and all the world to know that coalition forces will make every effort to spare innocent civilians from harm."  No trustworthy, popular news source has made the claim that President Bush is ordering the targeting of Iraqi civilians because it can not be proven.  In fact, the application of new military technology and use of covert intelligence as well as a sensitive assessment of the battlefield in Iraq has made it more difficult for American forces and safer for the Iraqi people.

 

Return Argument:  Kerry is for abortion.  Bush is not.

Question:  What's the difference between war and abortion?

Answer:  The difference between war and abortion is the prosecution of the guilty versus the protection of the innocent.  Jesus would vote for the more moral man.

 

Closing:  If you believe that nothing good has ever come from war, American History disagrees with you.
