Can a Christian Vote for a Non-Christian Candidate?

Only on this site are people worried about voting between a "Non-Christian" and a Mormon. Lol. And I have a question: Since most people on this site believe Obama is not a Christian because of his actions, then wouldn't that make Romney a "Non-Christian?" Surely, he hasn't acted in line with Christianity?

sneak, only a religious bigot would write such a thing. Christians are not religious bigots and we love this God-ordained country. We will vote for a Mormon who is pro-America over a "Christian" who is anti-America.

Would you vote for an atheist who is pro-America?

"A Christian who is anti-America" seems like an oxymoron to me. But I suppose that depends on what one's view of America is. Clearly there are people (perhaps sneakattack) who view America as a place where Christianity has no place in the public square.

Sneak, perhaps that's why you find this to be the "only site" where people are concerned (not worried, mind you) about basing their votes on a candidate's spiritual beliefs.

If that atheist supported the Christian principles on which this country was founded, then sure I could possibly vote for him/her. Who is your hypothetcal atheist running against?

If she shared my values and was running against a leftist, SURE I'd vote for her.

If "Pro-America" meant "America uber alles", no.
That's why worshiping the one true God is so important in public life.
It keeps us from worshiping ourselves.

BTW, I'll bet Chries and I don't exactly agree on the definition of Christian, but we do support the same candidate.

If an Atheist who was Pro-American was just slightly better than a Christian who was Pro-American, who would y'all vote for?

Does a slight difference mean an unimportant difference?

A thousand times, YES. Though we can throw a fit that our preferred man is not going to be appearing on the ballot, we conservatives must grow up and admit that THAT is our choice, in a nutshell. Deal the hand dealt us. Well-put, and thanks for living in the real world, instead of that inhabited by some of my co-patriots.

That's quite an obscure hypothetical, sneak. I'll consider it if/when the occasion ever arises.

It's a conversation among Christians, which you are welcome to read.
The point is that we are once again faced with a choice of the better of two non-Christians.
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

– 1Timothy 2:1-2

It is clear from the Apostle Paul’s writing that we are to pray for all leaders in government, including those who may not be Christians. But can we vote for them?

Theologian Wayne Grudem writes in Politics According to the Bible, “Christians should support the candidates who best represent moral and political values...
