Is Jesus a Democrat or Republican? Who would the Savior, if He were walking the earth in 2012, vote for tomorrow on Election Day? Depending on which group of people you talk to, you’ll get perfectly opposing partisan viewpoints. Some argue in Romney’s favor because of his stance against abortion and same-sex marriage.

Others applaud Obama because his policies are friendlier to the poor and middle class. But some are caught somewhere in the middle, stuck between two opinions.

They say just as Jesus cares about morality and righteous living, He is also a champion of the poor, widowed, and helpless. For them, both candidates leave something to be desired. So they are either undecided about who is the “lesser of the two evils,” or have simply chosen to sit this election cycle out altogether.

In a recent article published by CNN’s Religion blog titled, Do you believe in a red state Jesus or a blue state Jesus? this very topic is explored.

“In Christianity, liberals and conservatives choose to see Jesus in different ways,” writes John Blake. “Some liberals see Jesus as a champion of the poor who would support raising taxes on the wealthy, while some conservatives think Jesus would be more concerned with opposing abortion and same-sex marriage.”

Which way should we go? Whom should we choose? What issues are most important? How central a role should our faith play in our voting patterns? All these questions are being pondered in mainstream media, as well as in our hearts as empowered Christian women voters.
