I have given much thought to Richard Stoecker’s letter (“Vote for Mormon against beliefs,” June 15). I am also a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion.
But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon.
Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama — a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.
I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility.
So wait a hot second here. I’m not a Christian (well, yes, I am actually; at least according to me) if I don’t vote for Mitt Romney? Because the gist of what I’m reading here seems to be that I should seriously consider my faith if I want to go ahead and vote for the man whom I think would do the best job running the country (just as an aside, I’m going to vote once again for President Obama) if it’s not Mitt Romney. Right? Is there any other way to take what this twat is saying? Especially that one part about—and I’m going to paraphrase here—anyone who’d vote for President Obama is a baby-killing, gay-loving—GASP!—liberal. Shall I generalize and say that everyone who votes for Mitt Romney is a racist, gay-hating devil? Because that’s kind of what she’s doing here in writing this letter to a local newspaper.
Now, I’m not one for calling someone an asshole just because I disagree with their “values,” nor would I ever slam someone’s mama because I just wasn’t raised like that, but come on. Jane Pitt? Wow, dude. You’re an asshole.
