Christians told it's wrong to refuse to vote for 'lesser of two evils' in U.S. presidential election

ReutersDonald Trump and Hillary Clinton are headed for a White House showdown this November.

A good number of Christians have reportedly expressed their intention to stay at home and not cast their vote for president on U.S. Election Day this November since they would not want to vote for "the lesser of two evils."

Responding to this contention, respected journalist, author and WND Managing Editor David Kupelian said voters who think this way are misinformed.

"We're all evil, guys," Kupelian said during a recent appearance on American Family Radio's "Today's Issues."

"Sin is evil. Every president who's ever lived, including George Washington and Ronald Reagan, has had some evil, some sin in them. Knock it off with 'the lesser of two evils.' The lesser of two evils is the greater good," he said.

Kupelian contended that Americans have allowed their nation to become evil with the kind of culture, laws and entertainment it now has. He described America's plight in his recent book, "The Snapping of the American Mind."

Considering how much American culture has sunk, Kupelian said it might be too much to ask for a perfect Christian presidential candidate.

"We somehow expect Jesus to run for president," he said. "We expect the perfect Christian saint to be elected. Ain't gonna happen this time."

Kupelian noted that the 2016 presidential race in all likelihood will be a contest between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. He said Christians should be grateful they have Trump as an option.

Kupelian said the contrast between the two candidates is sharp and clear. Trump is a decent man who has raised a decent family and found great success as a businessman, he said. "On the other hand, they have the corrupt and dishonest Hillary Clinton," he added.

"There is really a clear choice this time," Kupelian said. "One of those two is going to be president, and we need to man up and not say, 'Oh, it's not perfect, so I'm gonna stay home and not vote.' That's your right to stay home and not vote, but I never want to hear from you again about any complaints after the election if the wrong person wins."
