Mark DeMoss & Steve Strang Weigh In On Faith’s Influence in Presidential Election

by MullOverThis

Mark DeMoss, former right hand man to Jerry Falwell and President of his own public relations group, and Steve Strang, Publisher of Charisma magazine, both proffer compelling arguments on the role Presidential candidates’  faith should play in the election.  Their views are not entirely conflicting but DeMoss is clearly not as convinced that a candidate’s personal faith should be weighty in selecting the next Commander in Chief as Strang or I am.  

Considering the President of the United States is probably one of the most powerful positions one can hold in this life, and the “powers that be” affect the quality and kind of life we will live in this country, I fail to see how the candidates faith is not a major factor.   Competence is a given, but can be misjudged as we have seen some of the greatest people on paper fail when entering top level governmental positions.  Conversely, we have seen the “how sweet” ambitions of one of our favorite celebrities, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, grip the reigns of leadership of one of the largest and most challenging states in the US, California.  Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Mr. affluent businessman with no real political experience, has left no room for question that one can take his first baby steps into government and understand it as NYC’s set man. 

For the record, I don’t prefer any of the candidates DeMoss or Strang referenced.  Sometimes people who don’t use their faith as a flag are the ones who will continue to pray and really seek God for the wisdom and guidance to lead them, their family, their community and this nation.  With that in mind, I’m looking for a precedence to be set in this next election and we shall see how s/he fares.

  1. I think a candidate’s faith should matter to voters in general elections…which is why I am dumbfounded that any Christian (‘evangelical’ or otherwise) would support Mitt Romney (a Mormon). Or why Pat Robertson would openly endorse Rudy Guiliani!

  2. Hey i have no problemo w/ the fact that miley cyrus i successful, wat i do think needs a change is the number of successful young black girls. Just throwing it out there.
