Wow! It’s election time again!

Who are you going to vote for? Like me, maybe you’re not sure.

However, there is one thing certain. I know who I won’t vote for. Let me clarify myself. History substantiates that every nation’s government has been established according to the theistic or atheistic beliefs of that populace. Our country has a Christian heritage as verified by our U.S. Preamble, U.S. Constitution, every 50 State Preambles, plus many documents.

Let’s look at a couple of State Preambles: 1) Alabama 1901 Preamble: “We the people of the State of Alabama, invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God, do ordain and establish the following Constitution.”

2) California 1879, Preamble: “We, the People of the State of California, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom.”

All other state’s preambles are very similar in their reading.

Therefore, every leader we elect should profess, support and administer our Christian heritage in all facets of his/her governmental responsibilities.

Unfortunately, we have candidates running for election/re-election that are not of our Christian heritage.

Take the Muslim candidates for example. Look at Iraq, Iran and all other Islamic nations and their type of government. They reflect their theistic view of Allah, based on their Holy Book – the Koran.

It is a fact that the imans and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad (Holy War) against the infidels of the world.

And, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven.

Now, an infidel is a non-believer. This means that all followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of their faith so they can go to heaven.

Yes, that means they are commanded to kill you and me.

I respond to all Muslims and anyone even thinking about voting for Muslim candidates (shudder the thought) with one question. Would you rather have your Allah who tells

you to kill me in order to go to heaven or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to Heaven and He wants you to be with me?

It can’t be made plainer than this. What’s your choice. I know mine! May all honor, power and glory be to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit!
