So, today is the big day. I hope that everyone in The States will go and vote. I’ll be glad when this is over, but I think the debates will go on for quite a while after this election. Molly had a post on the election the other day and the number of responses were amazing. It seems that the christians are a lot more devided in this election than the previous one.
From an outsider’s perspective, I think the conservatives in the church made a huge mistake when they decided Bush is God’s man. He is incredibly unpopular outside the United States and it seems not so popular in the States as well. I think John McCain would have had a great chance if Bush was not the Republican leader before him. I also think that this election may put the conservative right(the ones shouting from the pulpit) at a crossroad of becoming irrevelant. In Bush you gave the world a very poor example of christianity. Every candidate you support from now on, will be met with distrust. If you wanted Obama to loose, you should have endorsed him 🙂
Who will win? It seems Obama will, but McCain has come back from behind more than once. Whatever happens, I’ll pray for your country and your leaders. May God bless you all.
