With all the controversy surrounding the fight, it’s worth a second watch. I didn’t upload the fight, but found it on YouTube. Seeing as Pacquiao has recently re-dedicated his life to the Lord, and many of you may not have seen the fight, I thought it would be worth posting here.

Mitt Romney addressed a group of Christian conservatives on Saturday, saying he would reverse President Barack Obama’s policy on Israel, which is dominated by the fear that the Jewish country might attack Iran. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee also backed other conservative social issues, and received support from former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum.
“I think, by and large, you can just look at the things the president has done and do the opposite,” The Associated Press quoted Romney as telling an audience of about 250 Christian conservatives from the Faith and Freedom Coalition.
“You look at his policies with regards to Iran,” the former Massachusetts governor went on to say, speaking by satellite from Cornwall, Pa., to the conference in Washington, D.C. “He’s almost sounded like he’s more frightened that Israel might take military action than he’s concerned that Iran might become nuclear.”
Romney, who was in Pennsylvania on the second day of his six-state, five-day bus tour, said he was for forging a strong working relationship with the leadership in Israel. “I would make it very clear that for us, as well as for them, it is unacceptable for Iran to become a nuclear nation and that we’re prepared to take any and all action to keep that from happening.”
The Republican presidential candidate also said countries like Turkey and Saudi Arabia should be encouraged to arm “the insurgents” in Syria’s civil war.
“But perhaps overarching is this: I would not want to show a dime’s worth of distance between ourselves and our allies like Israel,” he added. “If we have disagreements, you know, we can talk about them behind closed doors. But to the world, you show that we’re locked arm in arm.”
Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt defended the president’s record on Israel. He claimed Obama had given Israel more security assistance than his predecessors and supported Israel at the United Nations.
Romney also criticized Obama’s contraception mandate, which requires religious organizations, including the Catholic Church, to provide contraceptive coverage to its employees. “The decision by the Obama administration to attack our first freedom, religious freedom, is one which I think a lot of people were shocked to see,” he said.
Romney cited former rival Santorum’s three “best predictors” for happiness and financial success: be married, graduate from high school and get a job.
Later on Saturday, the former Pennsylvania senator praised Romney. Speaking to the coalition conference, Santorum said he appreciated Romney’s speech because it “hit all the points,” and had “no doubt” he recognizes the “centrality of family.”
Santorum added that he thought Romney would track toward the middle. “But I’m not seeing that. I’m seeing him stand by the convictions he had during the primaries.”
It’s a question we will all be faced with in the November Presidential Election. Will we vote for four more years of the most anti-Christian President in the history of the Unite States, Barack Obama, or will we vote for Mitt Romney, who is a Mormon.
There are many reasons why Mormonism is not Christian. You can click here and read an article breaking down the differences between the two religions. This is not to say they aren’t good people and do a lot of good because they do.
So should that be the deal breaker?
President Barack Obama claims to be a Christian, but the majority of his policies are clearly anti-Christian. For example, his support for gay marriage is a direct violation of scriptureand his mandate on healthcare providers to provide contraception violates the doctrine of many Christian sects.
I’ve stated in previous posts that I’m voting for Romney. The main reason being Obama’s radical agenda against Christianity.
But I’m curious how you the reader see this dilemma of voting for a Christian. So please vote above and let me know why you voted the way you did in the comment section below.

Did you know that 14% of Americans think they are registered to vote, but are not.
That’s roughly 33 million people.
It’s also a great tool to see if your friends and family are registered. If they are not, make it a personal goal to get them registered.
As Christians, it is so vital that we go to the polls every election. When we decide to stay home, we get the type of leadership that currently leads our country.
If you are not currently registered, what are you waiting for? And if you know of anyone who is not registered, make it a goal to get at least a handful of those individuals registered before the Novemeber election.

Revelation 13 16:18: He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
Revelation 9:9-11: Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
