Already causing a stir on a few Facebook pages, Summit Ministries released this thought-provoking piece just prior to Romney's acceptance speech at the RNC. What do you think? Can Christians vote for a Mormon?
On my personal Facebook page, I responded to a friend who said he was not sure he could:
"I feel that tension. But remember that as Americans we don't elect a king, we elect leaders to steward our laws, institutions and way of life. Thus, voting is as much more of an act of stewardship as it is 'getting the right man in.' I feel I have spent most of my votes as voting against as well, but that's part of the American system (which, as frustrating as it is, is better than being at the mercy of a king). When such important things are at stake (like religious freedom or a push to accommodate sexual brokenness and economic adolescence), I think the privilege to vote becomes something of a duty or responsibility (we might even quote Scripture here... when we can do good, and don't, it's sin)."
