Will you vote (presidentialCandidate) or (anotherPresidentialcandidate)? A good friend from my hometown in Mindanao asked me through text (SMS).
Unfortunately, he only mentioned two names. There are 9 presidential candidates to choose. Apparently, only the very popular candidates are usually mentioned. Because I know that he knows I am vocal on my support to one presidential candidate, I suspect he wanted to engage another lengthy campaign discussions. I think of another thing. I want to share to him about Vote God advocacy.
So I replied: I will vote God on May 10!
I just read fellow Cebu blogger’s post about election, Vote God this Philippine Elections 2010.
Intriguing indeed! How can we vote God who is not even a candidate? In Vernon’s article he suggested (which inspire me),
Look to your conscience and choose the way of GOD! Do not just listen or even take the word of these aspiring public servants but instead do your research and I encourage you to use this L-A-S-E-R test as your guide.
Another blogger who mentioned about Vote God crafted the striking truth when she wrote that deciding who to vote lies in our minds, hearts, and hands. Isn’t her post Let’s Vote God sounds equally intriguing as Vernon’s?
Recently, I wrote and I asked, Do your candidates pass the LASER test for Election 2010? In that post, I mentioned about Vote God campaign by the Dilaab Foundation.
What is Vote God?
Going back to my friend. As expected my friend exploded with quick reactions. Unsa na nga klase nga joke bai?
Of course you know that I was not kidding. Later my friend understood what I meant. Thanks to God and thanks to Skype. (smile)
Vote God, as described, is a
[..] faith-impelled advocacy which hopes to infuse the electoral process with Christian values and for the discerning bloc to muster enough moral courage to choose good over evil, even the lesser evil, during the elections.
It is choosing the way of God!
