Another Argument Against Voting

Romans 1:32 Though they know God's decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

So, if you choose to cast your vote for candidates supporting sins such as homosexual marriage or abortion, you are just as guilty of these sins as if you had committed them yourself. If you choose to cast your vote for candidates who support persecuting our citizens who refuse to pay for insurance that covers abortions, you will be held guilty of the persecution that will be meted out in the next few years.

Basically, the argument is this:  it doesn’t matter if your vote has any impact on the outcome of the election; what matters is that your vote is a tacit endorsement of a particular candidate.  As such, when you vote for someone, you are essentially saying that you approve of that person’s actions and decisions, and, more importantly, their practice of evil.  This principle is important to remember in light of the common argument that it’s best to vote for the lesser of two evils.  But a lesser evil is still evil, and voting for said evil is still a ringing endorsement of that evil. Thus, another credible argument can be made against voting.
