I read a lot of things that absolutely pissed me off over the weekend. They range from the hurriane being an act of god to punish gay people, to a Catholic bishop writing a letter ordering every church beneath him to order their congregations to vote for Romney if they don't want to go to Hell.
There was also a full moon while we were offline (in a way, I think we might all be grateful that the last full moon before an election, during a pagan holiday - there are still idiots terrorizing small children with Chick Tracts out there- the site was simply not here). I had a small blot, just me and the AEsir invited. I made a point to meditate a little to see if I was given any instruction on who to vote for. Imagine my shock (note sarcasm) that they had absolutely no opinion on the subject. I did happen across a few other blogs from assorted varieties of pagans, suggesting they know the way ALL pagans should vote...but they don't seem to have any divine mandate, either. Just more of the same propaganda being used by the bishop and rabbi in the stories linked above, only with a different slant. I couldn't find a single one who had orders straight from Isis or Hera with regards to who should win the 2012 election for leader of a country thousands of miles away from where they originate.
I guess I'm going to have to make up my own mind, based on my own priorities, ethics, and values. Novel idea. Anyone get some divine guidance on their vote, or are we all in the same boat? Is it perhaps time for the churches and religious writers to stop suggesting they have some inside info that doesn't exist?Answer Question

No idea my priest just mentioned that we should vote. It's up to us to search our own conscious and select leaders who we think we best meet the needs of the community including the poor and underprivileged.
