As I’m sitting here reading through the posts by my liberal friends on Facebook, I see multiple discussions about the flood of lies that has come from the Romney campaign. It made me think about Republicans and how they are constantly attempting to write Christianity into the law. It occurred to me that the supporters of Romney, many of whom are supposedly “good Christians,” are supporting someone who has broken one of the 10 Commandments countless times.
Well, maybe not entirely countless. This article discusses how Romney told 533 lies in 30 weeks. That’s a pretty good count. This is 533 documented violations of the Ninth Commandment in a 30 week period. That’s impressive. One of Romney’s pollsters, Neil Newhouse, even said that “[the Romney campaign is] not going to let [their] campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.” Translation: We’re not going to let the truth stand in our way.
I’m not saying Obama and his campaign are perfect. But, as a group of people who are supposedly so interested in demonstrating their Christian faith (hence the opposition to gay-marriage and the panic about the word God being left out of the Democratic platform), how can these people, in good conscience, vote for a party that has demonstrated a complete lack of regard for one of the 10 Commandments that they hold so dear? I guess God declared that commandment optional as long as you persecut those horrible gays that aren’t even mentioned in the commandments.
