When Good People Do Nothing

first_imgThanks to low turnout by those who respect traditional values, America will reap dire consequences.We don’t need to hear a sermon to be told this.  Live Science, no bastion of Christian conservatism (quite the opposite), seemed pleased to inform its readers of the social changes coming from national and state election results on November 6.  In “5 Ways the Election Will Affect Social Values,” Tia Ghose spelled them out:1. Drug laws: “Support for marijuana legalization has steadily increased, and last year, for the first time, a Gallup poll found 50 percent of Americans supported legalizing the drug.”2. Gay marriage:  “Obama’s re-election stands to be a boon for gay-marriage supporters.”  Maine and Massachusetts passed ballot initiatives to legalize gay marriage.3.  Immigration: “In his second term, Obama is likely to renew the push for comprehensive immigration reform, according to news reports. He  also is likely push for the passage of the DREAM Act, which would provide people brought here illegally with a path to citizenship if they attend college or enroll in the U.S. military.”4. Abortion:  “Obama’s re-election also may be good news for supporters of abortion rights. With the liberal wing of the Supreme Court aging, Obama may have the chance to nominate one or even two Supreme Court Justices, shoring up support for abortion rights on the court,” Ghose wrote.  “It also means that any national abortion legislation will arrive on Obama’s desk for signing before it can be approved.”5. Death:  “The country may be divided on when life begins, but it’s also conflicted about death,” Ghose wrote.  Ballot propositions on physician assisted suicide, for instance, have not yet gained a footing, but its proponents keep trying.In an 18-minute video on YouTube, Frank Turek explained why Christians should be involved in politics.  The difference between night-time view of the Korean peninsula show why: the south is brightly lit, and the north is dark — because of politics.  All laws legislate morality, he says.  If we do not present morality effectively, society will pay the consequences.
