For the last few days we’ve been getting calls from people referring to Dave Glasgow as “Crazy Dave”. They said he had some very disturbing views and was extremely intolerant of people who vote differently than he does. We pushed for the proof and got it. During the 2012 election cycle Crazy Dave likened Romney voters to Nazis!! Here it is.

Thoughts worth considering………
I throw in my vote for one evil man or the other to “rule” over the lives of millions who will suffer under such “rule”, and thus I bear a certain responsibility. There’s no way of getting around that. Do we see no inherent conflict with preaching Christ, while bearing the fruit of supporting, condoning, even bringing into prominence evil, or evil people? I don’t see how we can use the reasoning “well, it wasn’t my fault”, any more than Nazi soldiers can say “it wasn’t my fault, I was just following orders”. And I don’t see how we can preach standing for holiness and righteousness on the one hand, condemning ungodly rulers elsewhere, then vote for an ungodly ruler for our own country, under the pretext that he isn’t “as bad” as the other guy. Once we go down that “lesser evil is better than worse evil” road of compromise, we have opened the door to all manner of “lesser evil” and as a result have lost the principle of purity and holiness.
I am not against voting in general. But I cannot reconcile preaching truth and righteousness on one hand, while on the other hand helping to place in power over the culture (and in reality, that’s exactly what voting for a ruler does), a man and his administration which is, or signs into law, what is contrary to that same truth and righteousness.
A recent article entitled “A Vote For Romney is a Vote for the LDS Church” written by Warren C. Smith contains a quote I completely agree with:
“To elect a Mormon President is to advance the cause of the Mormon Church. Non-Christians likely don’t care much about this point one way or the other. But for the Christian, this is a vital issue. . . . The validation of the false religion of Mormonism would almost certainly have the effect of leading many astray. Evangelical Christians should have no part of that effort. . . . A Romney presidency would have the effect of actively promoting a false religion in the world. If you have any regard for the Gospel of Christ, you should care. A false religion should not prosper with the support of Christians. The salvation of souls is at stake.”
