Ohio’s faithful chorus may call the tune on Election Day

Economic issues seem to be dominating the 2012 campaign, but a quiet electoral revolution is brewing. The "religious vote" is on the move -- and it's not going leftward.

Disgusted by the Democrats' embrace of the abortion industry and the homosexual agenda, plus the reckless spending and the Democrats' initially leaving God and Jerusalem out of the party platform, the rightward march may turn into a stampede on Nov. 6. Building on the Tea Party-fueled GOP tsunami in 2010, "values voter" activists are in hyperdrive.

The Rev. Billy Graham, while not endorsing a candidate, is featured in full-page ads urging Americans "to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman." Barack Obama in May, it should be noted, endorsed homosexual "marriage."

Ralph Reed's Faith & Freedom Coalition, a high-tech version of the old Christian Coalition, began in September distributing 17 million voter guides in battleground states, including Spanish language versions, according to's David Brody.

In Ohio, a crevasse has opened between city and country. In 2004, Ohioans approved a constitutional marriage amendment with 62 percent of the vote. Yet, today, "in the 10 biggest cities in Ohio, all the mayors are for gay 'marriage,'" said Phil Burress, president of Cincinnati-based Citizens for Community Values and CCV Action. "What's happening is that the conservatives are leaving the big cities, so we are concentrating on the rural areas. Seventy-two counties are 'red,' and only 16 counties are 'blue.'"

"Mr. Burress said that his group was calling swing voters with seemingly odd results. "Why were we getting a two-to-one split for Romney? We thought at first we were calling the wrong people - but we weren't."

Catholics, Evangelicals, and mainline Protestants are of one mind this election—that the Democrats and the President have become anti-Christian. This massive bloc has never fully come together before. Ralph Reed dreamed of this and I give him credit for identifying true Christians as a potential force of judgement for the Antichrists that hold power in Washington DC.

The problem is that the Catholic vote has not mobilized—but it has now. They see Obamacare as a direct threat to Religious Freedom. They’re mad as hell and they aren’t going to take it any more. Catholics and Evangelicals, as well as religious Protestants are a quiet Tsunami that will sweep over this Nation turning out Democrats, high and low, in a shocking and glorious fashion.
