Right now, my Christian Ethics professor is discussing bestiality and homosexual marriage and sodomy.
Since those things are extremely controversial in popular culture today, I will not be discussing them here. Mostly because I just don’t want to.
However, this does provoke some thought about a post I saw earlier today:
Have we seen the last Republican president?
The results of Tuesday’s election points to the fact that the traditional Republican candidate may not stand a chance of being elected as President of the United States of America.
Barack Obama, in his first four years as President, did many things he promised he would do in order to get elected. He ended the conflict in Iraq, and he killed Osama bin Ladin. He (sort of) ended the recession, and he helped save General Motors. However, the Obama administration spent much more money than any President in history, and failed to close the deficit or pay down the national debt. Additionally, Obama failed to reduce unemployment and made poor investments with the taxpayer money into green investments and green jobs. Finally, Obama spent more days playing golf and basketball and holding concerts for his children than he did attempting to solve the problems of the country.
Even though many will attribute Obama’s reelection to his race or his party platform or his foreign policy, none of these determined the result of the election.
The truth is, Mitt Romney’s religion and moral stance were the reasons he lost. Even thought Romney did not publicly discuss his faith and purport it as the basis for his decision making, the conservative moral views of Mormonism simply do not align with those of popular culture.
Mitt Romney had run many successful businesses and made millions of dollars as a businessman. He would have been more than capable of making successful economic and foreign policy decisions, and would have allowed America to thrive as a First World Power once again.
The republican party must now decide if it’s traditional platform views regarding the right to life and homosexual marriage are going to continue to prevent it from receiving celebrity endorsements and turning away the younger, social-media savvy voters.
While I will continue to support the pro-life and sanctity of marriage values, I cannot see how the Republican party can survive in this “progressive” culture.
I pray for a great awakening in this country, and I pray for our President.
