Over 320,000 Christians pledge to vote for Jesus as president

The last time we reported on the "Vote for Jesus" campaign pushed by Bill Keller of LivePrayer.com, almost 120,000 people had signed a pledge committing to write in Jesus for their presidential vote this November.

That number is now over 320,000.

Keller, who has claimed to be the world's leading Internet evangelist, says on his Voting for Jesus website that this year's choice of the two major parties' presidential candidates is like "satan flipping a two-headed coin with his head on both sides."

Keller claims that Obama has attacked Christianity and Christian churches and "has proven to be a true enemy of God and His Word" by supporting same sex marriage and abortion.  He takes issue with Romney's Mormon faith, describing it as "a cult born out of the pits of hell and responsible for sending millions of souls to eternal damnation." According to Keller, "If Mitt Romney is elected, he will be the fulfillment of his cult's polygamist, pedophile, racist, con artist, murdering founder Joseph Smith's "White Horse" prophecy that Romney and all Mormon's believe. That prophecy says that the United States will facing great economic and social unrest, a Mormon will be elected President, declare a national emergency and set aside the US Constitution and enact a Mormon theocracy. That may sound impossible, but ever since he was at BYU, Romney was called by his inner circle "the chosen one" to fulfill their cult's prophecy."

"Your vote for JESUS is not helping President Obama get re-elected, nor is it helping Mitt Romney get elected, it is telling satan you will not be responsible for either of his tools becoming our next President!" Keller writes. "Men need to quit looking to men for answers, but to the Lord!"

    I believe Jesus was married and had children, and his line descended from his younger son to Emperor Constantine, King Arthur, Meroveus, Charlemagne, William the Conqueror, to King Edward I, and from him to every man who has been elected president.

    So voting for Obama is voting for the descendant of Jesus. Sweet irony.

    Well there's a throw away vote if I ever saw one. Maybe we should have a campaign to elect Captain Jean-Luc Picard as president. It would have exactly the same results in the end and which ever human has the most electoral college votes will be our next president. Do they honestly think their Jesus will win? If so, then they really don't know anything about the voting process. Even if we did not have an electoral college, the winner of the popular vote would go to those who voted for a human being, alive and well today.

    Who would JC pick as his vice president?

    Perhaps all these "patriots" signing the pledge should find a nice religious country to live in, like Iraq.

    I am quite sure Jesus is not running for President and would decline to serve if elected. If Bill Keller would stop his fear-mongering about a Mormon president, Christians could cast a vote that supports a Mormon-Catholic alliance for the good of our country.

    Mormon scripture declares that the US Constitution is a God-inspired document. They honor it for protecting the liberties of all faiths and creeds. Mormon's do not seek to overthrow this magnificent system of government which God ordained for "the protection of all flesh."

    They do teach a prophecy (not the officially rejected White Horse Prophecy) that some day the United
    States will face great economic and social unrest, during which the Constitution will hang by a thread. At which point, Mormons will successfully rally like minded citizens who support the US
    Constitution against those who would overthrow it.

    As much as most Mormon conservatives dislike President Obama, few think the Constitution yet hangs by a thread. Nor do they claim Mitt Romney to be any kind of political savior. However, most Mormons are politically conservative and believe Romney is now our best option.

    I had an email correspondence with either Keller himself, or one of his flunkeys, but I have to say, if Keller is a Christian, and I, as a Mormon, am not, I'm sorry but I will pass on Christianity. Not if it means being as nasty and foul-mouthed as he was. I can prove it, too, as I saved the emails he sent me.

      I had a similar experience with Bill Keller. I would not recommend anyone follow this ex-felon's advice on anything – especially Christianity.

    If there had been no Nicene Creed or Emperor
    Constantine, Catholic and Protestant
    theology would be quite similar to Mitt Romney’s In fact, there would likely be no need for
    the Church of Jesus Christ (LDS) to restore Jesus Christ’s church. Mormons’
    theology is based on New Testament Christianity, not Fourth Century Creeds. For example, the Church of Jesus Christ (LDS)
    views on Baptism, Lay Ministry, the Trinity, Theosis, Grace vs. Works, the
    Divinity of Jesus Christ are closer to Early Christianity than any other
    denomination. And Mormon teenagers have been judged to “top the charts” in
    Christian Characteristics by a UNC-Chapel Hill study. Read about it here:

    http://​MormonsAreChristian.blogspo​t.com/

    According to a 2012 Pew Forum poll of members of the
    Church of Jesus Christ (LDS) 98 percent said they believe in the Resurrection
    of Jesus Christ, and 97 percent say their church is a Christian religion. They volunteer 7 times as many hours as does
    the general population, according to a 2012 University of Pennsylvania study. Mormons have a better understanding of
    Christianity than any other denomination, according to a 2010 Pew Forum poll:

    http://www.pewforum.org/​Other-Beliefs-and-Practices​/​U-S-Religious-Knowledge-Sur​vey.aspx

    11 of the signers of the Declaration of Independence
    (including several presidents) were non-Trinitarian Christians, as is Mitt
    Romney, who is as faithful as the most devout Founder.

    Contrast
    Mitt Romney’s faith to that of Barack
    Obama: Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the Obama's pastor of twenty years, says “it is
    hard to tell” if Barack Obama converted from Islam to Christianity”. Wright says “church is not Barack’s thing”

    I have found like minded people. I thought I would be the only one writing in the Lord Jesus Christ on my ballot in November. I'm not voting for President this year. I'm voting my ALLIEGENCE to the One True Living Resurrected Savior, Jesus Christ. My Hope is in Him. Mormonism is a cult and they do not even worship Jesus from the Holy Bible…research WHO THEY ARE….it's no wonder Mitt is kinda robotical as a Mormon …just like John Travolta is pretty weird as a scientoligist….Tom Cruize too.

      OK… You do know when you vote, you are not swearing allegiance to them, don't you? You're only voting for a person and to write in a vote (real person or not), is throwing away your vote? Which, if that is what you want to do, makes it a whole lot easier for Obama to win a second term, causing his supporters to dance in the streets again after he's won again. Be my guest and vote for Jesus or even
      Cthulhu for all I care. It's just one more vote for Obama. Kudos to you. Thank you and good night.

    If 320,000 Christians say they will vote for Jesus, I hope they will not complain that those votes will be for Obama. When Christ does come again and reigns personally on the earth, he will not be running for election. God already elected him and his place will be Lord of Heaven and Earth. Until then, we will have to make the best of the choices we have from imperfect human beings. The choices before me are an arrogant, incompetent narcissist who says we are not a Christian nation, mocks marriage, favors killing the unborn, and allows our citizens to die in foreign lands because of his ambition OR a man who has been successful in his business, loves his wife and family, is active in his faith, Christians should be realistic. There will be a time when Christ will be in charge, but that time is not yet.
