Oh, it's nearly here- Election Day 2012 is on Tuesday the 6th! This whole election has been hotter than a pan of burning popcorn. I have never heard so much talk of politics, nor heard so much derogatory speech aimed towards two individuals, as I have in the past year. Do you recall ever seeing a whole entourage of clothing bashing past presidents? Perhaps I only notice this stuff more now that I am old enough to vote, but I just do not recall seeing much of the type of thing pictured above in reference to presidents gone by.
As the candidates have verbally dueled it out these past few months, I have began to notice that nobody seems to have any sense of respect anymore. I will not hesitate to say that I do not like a lot of what's gone on over the past 4 years, but that man in the White House is still our top governing authority, and as such, should receive the respect due to the office he holds. On top of that, he is human, and therefore like all other humans, created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-"So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.").
When the votes are in on Tuesday, no matter who wins, just remember this:
"Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves." - Romans 13:1-2
