Jim began this edition of Crosstalk by alerting listeners to what’s been taking place in the House of Representatives. Representative Darrel Issa’s committee met for hours this morning regarding holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
Interestingly, President Obama made a move to give executive privilege over the “Fast and Furious” documents that are at the heart of the dispute.
This November we will be voting not only for the positions of President and Vice President, but also the entire House of Representatives, one-third of the U.S. Senate, and then there are the various state house and assembly seats.
With this important election in mind, Jim opened the phone lines for an open discussion about the office of the presidency and what it is that will determine your vote. Does the religion or the morals of a candidate matter to you? Will Mitt Romney’s Mormonism factor in to your decision? Some people believe we should vote for the lesser of two evils while others claim that to vote for either would still be voting for evil. Is a third party candidate a viable option?
In the end, Jim wanted to know what principle or principles, biblical or otherwise, listeners will be abiding by as they make their decision. Listeners brought forth interesting responses that perhaps will help you with your decision when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
