Once upon a time, Janet Folger declared that the only hope Christians had of not being rounded up and sent off to prison was to support Mike Huckabee. It was that sort of passion that landed her a position as co-chair of Mike Huckabee’s Faith and Values Coalition, whom she had anointed the “David among Jesse’s sons” after the Values Voter Debate she organized back in 2007.
In essence, God had chosen Huckabee and it was Folger’s job to make it clear that those with firm Christian principles must refuse to support anyone else:
There are sheep, and there are shepherds. Sheep follow the pundits, the polls, political expediency and promised perks. Shepherds follow principle. Gov. Mike Huckabee is such a man. So are those who stand on principle with him.
Senator John McCain favors forcing taxpayers to fund embryonic stem cell research, which the National Right to Life Committee says: “requires killing human embryos.”
McCain violated our Free Speech rights with the notorious McCain-Feingold Act, and personally sued Wisconsin Right to Life for communicating with their members prior to an election.
John McCain is one of only seven Republican senators who voted against the Marriage Protection Amendment supported by President Bush.
John McCain: Against protecting life. Against protecting free speech. Against protecting marriage.
But that was then. Once God’s candidate failed to secure the nomination, Folger changed her tune, declaring it imperative that those with firm Christian principles now support John McCain.
Folger was blasted by Gordon Klingenschmitt for selling-out in the pages of WorldNetDaily, but that obviously didn’t silence her, as she has returned to the pages of WND – this time to blast WND founder Joseph Farah for his own staunch refusal to support McCain, beseeching him to put aside his own principles for the greater good:
Here’s the bottom line: If McCain is elected, we WILL get the judges we need to bring this slaughter to an end. All of our efforts and all of our labors that have taken us this far will have been worth it. If Obama is elected, we will not only see the court stacked against us with life-long appointments, we will lose every single advance we have ever made in every state, city and county.
You want to protest? Get a sign and march. We’re out of time. Besides that, I’m sick of marching – I want to win: I want to restore protection to children in my lifetime.
I’ve given my life to the pro-life movement, and I don’t have another life to give it. Neither do the 50 million children whose lives were stolen from them. If we don’t take what may be our last chance, I don’t believe we’re going to see another one. If we choose protest over influence, Obama will not only make sure that another 50 million children lose their lives, but he’ll make sure we won’t recognize what’s left of our nation when he’s through with it.
I urge you to choose life, that we and our children may live. That choice is John McCain. Any other choice will be lethal … literally.
In the course of six months, Folger has gone from a militantly principled Huckabee activist who was convinced that he was God’s chosen candidate to a vocal supporter of John McCain, whom she was recently proclaiming was against protecting life, free speech, and marriage and therefore utterly unacceptable.
