Voters in America have a significant opportunity to vote for candidates who reflect our values, beliefs, and convictions. This is especially important in the remaining primary and caucus elections. When opportunities like this come around, Christians need to be informed on the candidates and vote wisely.
That's why I strongly encourage you to watch or listen to a "Pledge to Vote" special edition on the American Family Radio (AFR) program, Today’s Issues. A "Pledge to Vote" will air on Thursday, February 18, from 10-11AM CST. You can watch online via live-streaming video at www.AFAAction.net, or you can listen on American Family Radio (AFR) at the same time (Here’s a map of stations).
You don't want to miss special commentary by Franklin Graham (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association) and Todd Starnes (Fox News). I urge you to invite others to the program by sharing with your friends and family via email and social media. Those listening or watching will be able to post live comments to the show on Twitter at @afaaction and FaceBook at AFA Action.
This program on voting will be unique and informative. Hear about the significance of voting from a biblical and civic perspective. Hear how America can be turned around from a nation that calls the evil of abortion, good, and calls the good of the Gospel, evil (Isaiah 5:20). Listeners will also be informed on how they can identify candidates’ positions on issues through an in-depth, online voter guide. We will describe the function of the primary and caucus elections as well as how the electoral college process works.
If the "Pledge to Vote" program time is not at a convenient time for you, it will be available for free download for the first seven (7) days at the AFR Store. After that the download will be $5.00. A DVD version of “Pledge to Vote” will also be available at the AFR Store for $10.00.
I’ve heard it numerous times that voters don’t vote because they don’t want to choose between the lesser of two evils. In the primary and caucus elections there are more options at the presidential level, but my question is this, "Do you want more or less evil?" Now is not the time for voters to sit on the political sidelines because staying home on Election Day is a vote for moral decay. Let us remember the words of President Ronald Reagan, who said:
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."
Again, join me for a “Pledge to Vote” on Thursday, February 18, from 10-11AM CST.
