The lower turnout for the election didn't surprise me. Many Christians had no one to vote for. I voted, but not for president.|
When it comes to social views Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are two peas in a pod. If there is a difference, it was that the president accepted responsibility for his social policies, while Mitt was willing to deceive conservatives.
In 1976, I voted for Jimmy Carter because he claimed to be a Christian. That was good enough for me and I didn't look further into the matter. Later I found out that Mr Carter's idea of Christianity wasn't even close to orthodox.
I vowed not to take another politician's word for their social views without looking into it closely.
Mitt Romney was and is to this day a social liberal. He refused to attend family value summits and answer the questions that his legacy has left.
Just before the election he said that Roe v Wade wasn't on his agenda and I'm sure if he would have been elected, his choice for a Supreme Court would have reflected his "agenda."
