200,000 Christians promise to throw away their vote in November.

Sorry Bartimaeus. I won't be able to restore your sight. You didn't disclose the fact you have gout. That's a preexisting condition.

“Sorry Bartimaeus. I won’t be able to restore your sight. You didn’t disclose the fact you have gout. That’s a preexisting condition.”

Self-described world-leading Internet Evangelist Bill Keller isn’t happy with the choices for President that’ll be available this November and he thinks you shouldn’t be either. That’s why he’s trying to get people to promise to vote for a write-in candidate instead. Who is he hoping folks will write-in as the only suitable person for the job?

I bet you can guess:

Keller launched a sister website in mid-May, www.votingforjesus.com, that encourages people to sign up and commit to write in the name of Jesus for President this November, and expects to see over 1 million signed up by the time of the election. In an exclusive interview with the Christian Post, he said, “A Christian is faced with a difficult dilemma this November. It is literally Satan flipping a two-headed coin with his head on both sides. How can a Christian in good conscience vote for President Obama, who has proven to be the most pro-baby killing, pro-radical homosexual, pro-enemy of Israel President in our nation’s history.”

Keller continues, “On the other hand, how can a Christian in good conscience vote for Mitt Romney, a 5th generation member and priest of the Satanic Mormon cult. His Presidency would give his cult the mainstream acceptance they have always wanted since being founded 200 years ago by a documented con-artist, racist, pedophile, polygamist, and murderer named Joseph Smith. Conservative estimates are that Romney’s cult will add at least 1 million converts in the US alone. For a Christian, that means 1 million souls who will buy into a false Gospel and burn in hell for all eternity!”

Personally, I’m all for encouraging folks to participate in this exercise in futility. Mainly because the type of people most likely to do this sort of thing tend to be the Far Right religious nutcases who would otherwise vote for whoever was the Republican nominee regardless of whether he was a good choice or not. In short, it only really hurts the Republicans who are unlikely to vote for Obama anyway. So, yeah, go ahead and write in Jesus for President. I think that’s a great idea. Put down the Holy Spirit for VP while you’re at it.

Here’s the thing I’m curious about: What does Mr. Keller think should happen if, by some divine miracle, Jesus should happen to win the write-in vote? I took a look at his website and he doesn’t really say so I can only assume he doesn’t expect it to actually happen, but it’d be interesting to hear what he thinks should occur if it did. It’s doubtful Jesus would show up to take on the job if he won. Which is a shame considering how many Lefty socialistic ideas he’s known for espousing. Feed the poor, clothe the naked, heal the sick. And all while sporting one seriously hippy haircut and beard.

Somehow I don’t think the Religious Right would actually be happy if Jesus were to become President. Which is why they are comforted by the knowledge it would never actually happen.

  1. Are you kidding? The religious right would be ecstatic if Jesus were to become President, like a dog chasing a car only to be gloriously struck by it.

    Sorry for the doublepost

  2. You know, for some odd reason this kind of makes me want to vote Romney… It’s a very strange feeling.

  3. My co-worker Jesus would make a fine president, but he wasn’t born in the U.S.

  4. Unless Jesus returns early and registers as a write-in candidate, his votes will not be counted in Ohio. Write-in candidates have to register in advanced to matter.

  5. Most conservatives vote for a theocracy of some sort during every election year, I suppose this is a more direct way of doing it. In the wake of nearly four years of birtherism and red-baiting, it would be risible if even a minute number of Republicans voted for a proto-socialist Galilean born in the Roman Empire.

  6. Is this really going to eat into Republican votes? My understanding was that these type of people tend to vote for the Pat Robertsons.

  7. Jesus? Don’t they know that he was born over there somewhere close to Kenya, and in 2000 years, he hasn’t released his school records?
