Letter: Voting is a responsibility that affects the future

Posted: Saturday, November 1, 2014 12:00 am

This is all new to me, but I have decided that an opinion kept to yourself is really a secret and a secret cannot change anything.

This opinion concerns voting and your religious beliefs. Can a politician really vote what his constituents want when it comes to his religious beliefs, or should he be more concerned about what his God would want? Do you really think you can change hats from Christian to non-Christian without some consequences? If God was looking over your shoulder while you voted, would you tell him you are voting the way you are because it is politically correct or would you vote the way he would want you?

Being a politician or voter has its responsibilities. Am I a Christian first, or do I want to be politically correct? As a voter or politician, do you want God to be politically correct when he meets you at Judgment Day? He might just say, “You knew how I would have voted, yet you elected to ignore my wishes.”

It is true, voting is truly a big responsibility that can affect your future and maybe beyond! If this opinion makes you upset, maybe it is not the opinion upsetting you but your conscience.
