नास्तिक (heterodox)

My name is Ramesh and this is my personal blog.

Now, here is your chance to vote against God!

Klinghoffer, a proponent of “Intelligent design”, is a senior fellow at anti science Discovery Institute. His most recent book is How Would God Vote?: Why the Bible Commands You to Be a Conservative. He says this to NRO’s K-Lo.

Lopez: Are you actually arguing that the Bible argues for the election of John McCain over Barack Obama? That voting for Obama is to vote against God?

Klinghoffer: It would probably violate federal tax laws if I told you the Bible endorses a particular candidate. I work at a think tank, after all, a 501(c)(3) organization. But even if I didn’t, I wrote this book not to inflate anyone’s election chances but to give readers and voters the tools to read the Bible as a guide to thinking about a range of issues. If on that basis, you concluded that a Biblical worldview was at odds with Obama on most issues, or on certain key litmus test issues, yet you went ahead and voted for him anyway, that would be a vote against giving God a voice in our public affairs. It would be a vote to silence God’s influence in that area, as far as it’s in your power to do so. In a real sense it would be a vote against God.

Excellent.

On an unrelated note, science journal Nature’s endorsement of Obama ends like this:

This journal does not have a vote, and does not claim any particular standing from which to instruct those who do. But if it did, it would cast its vote for Barack Obama.
