Quote# 85863

Champion the Vote is an initiative of United in Purpose (UiP), a non-partisan, non-profit organization whose mission is to actively advance the traditional values of America's founding fathers.

UiP provides resources and infrastructure for like-minded Christian organizations and ministries to educate and mobilize their constituencies for the common cause of bringing the Biblical worldview to the forefront of American life and politics.

The mission of Champion the Vote is to get unregistered Christians registered to vote, educated in the Biblical worldview, and voting accordingly on Election Day.

Of the 60 million Christians in the U.S., only 30 million of them vote in any given election or are even registered to vote. Our research has shown that it only takes 5 million votes to decide an election. We believe that if Christian voters will make their voices heard on Election Day, we can bring about positive change in America. Our nation was founded on Biblical principles, but God has been expunged from our culture, and as a consequence, our nation is in an ethical and moral mess.

Champion the Vote is part of a nationwide grassroots movement to bring God back to the center of American life. Our goal is the rebirth of a commitment to seek His truth and to live by His principles in our personal and public lives.

In a democracy, it is the responsibility of the people to engage in the political process by voting. Voters shape the future of a nation. We believe it is our privilege and our duty to vote and that every vote counts.

Our strategy is simply this: Christians talking to other Christians about registering and voting. We believe that an army of Champions who will volunteer as little as one hour a week can make a difference, one person at a time, multiplied across the nation.

Statement of Faith
I believe that the Holy Bible is the inerrant Word of The Living God. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only One by which I can obtain salvation and have an ongoing relationship with God. I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, the atoning work of His shed blood, His resurrection and ascension, His intercession and His coming return to power and glory. I believe that those who follow Jesus are family and there should be unity among all who claim His name.

Non-partisan only in that they don't actually have the names Republican or TeaParty attached to them. They are non-partisan much in the same way that a "birthday bash" or a "New Year gala" would not be a party.

What's the difference between this and registering negroes in the assumption they'll vote democrat ?

Not fundy.

This is not really fundy - is it?

1/31/2012 12:24:46 PM



This is definitely fundie.

1/31/2012 12:46:29 PM



So basically you're a bunch of liars and traitors.

As I've mentioned before, my father's parents were solid Republicans. They would weep with despair to see what has happened to their party. Then they'd hold their noses and vote for Obama.

Too bad that statement of faith doesn't include a pledge to vote in line with the teachings of Jesus instead of voting against everything He stood for.

How the hell is this nonpartisan.

1/31/2012 2:11:43 PM



@ Phed: Of course this is fundie. First of all, they fit the definition of being fundamentalist when they say in their statement of faith, "I believe that the Holy Bible is the inerrant Word of The Living God." Second of all, they want to install a theocracy. How much more fundie can you get??

= POPE =

"We believe that if Christian voters will make their voices heard on Election Day, we can bring about positive change in America."

Reason 8,000,001 why the rest of us think and believe that you are delusional.

Let's go back to a time when this country was much more overtly a "Christian nation", shall we? Ah yes, the 1930's When almost everyone went to church (or else), and people were killing each other in the streets with machine guns. Why? Because some upright, uptight, moral assholes tried to prohibit the sale and consumption of alcohol, and we became a nation of lawbreakers. Onward, non-partisan Christian morons!

Our goal is the rebirth of a commitment to seek His truth and to live by His principles in our personal and public lives.

Who's stopping you from seeking His truth and living by His principles in your personal and public lives? Or are you so disrespectful, judgmental and holier-than-thou that you presume to tell the rest of us how to live?

I hate religion in politics but why is this fundie?

Fundies excel at futile gestures.

The "traditional values" of the US Founding Fathers were "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof", and "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States". How does that equate to "Our nation was founded on Biblical principles" or wanting to "bring God back to the center of American life"?

Yeah... just one problem.

Not all Christians vote Republican.

Non-partisan. Right. Keep telling yorself that.

While i do appreciate the idea of getting more people to vote, i doubt that you will be able to do anything but preach to the choir unless you try to force substantial changes to the system itself.

Non-partisan, yeah, riiiiiight....

Mind telling me why your "grassroot" movement looks a lot like Astroturf?

The founding fathers of the US have been dead for over two centuries, so unless you harbor a telepathic link to their ghosts
[size=30]WOULD YOU KINDLY CLAM THE HELL UP ABOUT WHAT "THEY" THINK.[/size]

Thanks.

These people think that there are way more of them than they actually are. Your ridiculous beliefs are going extinct. Any time you want to join the rest of us in the 21st Century you just let us know.

So when do you bring back slavery and revoke womens' right to vote? I'd ask when you'd pretend that gay people don't exist, but you already do that.

Champion the Vote is part of a nationwide grassroots movement to bring God back to the center of American life.

For fucks sake, this is America, god is already in fucking EVERYTHING.

" non-partisan...actively advance traditional values..."

Yeah, no. What I hate most about fundies is the LYING; the constant, pathological lying. *spit*

Good luck explaining Paine, Jefferson or, Heaven forbids, Frankling.
