Dr. Jerry Falwell Says Vote Christian

UPDATE: It is now confirmed that the information from the Forward Newsletter was correct that Dr. Jerry Falwell has launched an effort to influence voters, based on the idea that a Republican vote is the Christian vote, and counterwise to vote Democrat is a non Christian vote. We are not taking sides in this issue. It is up to you to make your own interpretation.

From Dr. Jerry Falwells website:


"We must now diligently work to multiply our turnout for the 2006 and 2008 elections.As national chairman of TMMC, I am committed to lending my influence to help send out at least 40 million evangelical voters in 2008. The thought of a Hillary Clinton or John Edwards presidency is simply unacceptable (and quite frightening)."

After, having success with having complaints dismissed by both the IRS and FEC, because of past political remarks, Jerry Falwell emailed.

Forward (a newsletter in New York)
is reporting:

A new mass mailing (snail mail) has been sent out by Dr. Jerry Falwell. Here is a quote that the Forward newsletter published attributed to Dr. Falwell.

"As national chairman of the Moral Majority Coalition, I am committed to lending my influence to help turn out at least 40 million 'faith and values' voters in 2008 to assure that Sen. Hillary Clinton, or someone of her ultra-liberal ilk, will never be president of this nation."

The letter comes with a car window sticker declaring "I Vote Christian."

Soon I imagine, if this report has validity we will be seeing the "I Vote Christian" window stickers throughout our area.

I invite your comments and thoughts on this issue.

There was a day when ones religion and ones politics didnt mingle. It was considered tacky to push your beliefs on others etc.

The "Moral Majority" comfortably reside on their moral HIGH GROUND.

It is easy to stand in judgement of others-not so easy to find common groud and compassion.

This is a wake up call to all religions, agnostics, athiests etc. What about your neighbor? Can you reach out to them without trying to "save" them?
Try it.

I think the point that we all must keep in mind is the implication that if you are not a republican you are an athiest. This is a very dangerous tact of for any individual "of influence" to use. The technic is old as the hills, mix a little truth with a lot of lies throw it against the wall and see what sticks. A formula to attempt a purge of anyone who leans towards the democratic party. And a formula to create a disaster of the two party system.

So called Christian conservative churches based in Lynchburg talk of the need to vote for state and federal elected officials based on morals. However, the local conservative faith community fails miserably in addressing local community values in Lynchburg. There is no effort to encourage residents to run for local office in Lynchburg nor even to vote in city council elections. It comes across as arrogant hypocrisy. It is time that they look in their own back yard and walk the "talk.".
