1.4 million eh? As we know via One Million Moms, the evangelicals can be pretty bad at math...

So after calculating in reality, I'm getting the number 14, which sounds about right.

Yeah, the bible just goes on and on about how exclusive and intolerant Jesus was. That guy didn't like anyone.

Yeah, Jesus the laissez-faire capitalist. What was that quote of his from the Sermon on Wall Street, "a little greed is good, baby."

One can only hope that these 1.4 million people live in key battleground states.

I fully support this recommendation.

But I think @1 is probably right. This will probably result in about two dozen write in votes at most. In Alabama, where it won't make the slightest difference.

@5 that's a Woody Guthrie song, enabled by Wilco.

I hope they do write in Jesus. It is better than their new hypocrisy created by Biilly Graham. For years they go on and on, written books that line the shelves of their book stores, about Mormonism being a cult: Bible + Book of Mormon = Satanic. And, now some of those same god-bothering "Christians" are claiming differently: Bible + Book of Mormon + tax breaks = Godly. Yeah right! Avarice rules them.

I'm not sure that Keller understands how this whole 'voting' thing works.

"Bradford Lyttle (U.S. Pacifist) 110The Hill reports on its website that among the “tens of thousands of votes cast for write-in candidates, ultra-fringe parties, and fictitious (or erroneous) contenders” were 43 write-in votes for Vermin Supreme, 19 for Bill Clinton, 11 for Mickey Mouse, nine for Santa Claus, seven for Donald Duck, and five each for “Jesus” and “Joe Plumber”."

Vermin Supreme is pretty badass.
Also, my middle school mock election quickly devolved into a pitched electoral battle between Jesus and Moses.

Keller says Obama's policies are socialist like it's a bad thing...and then he tells people to vote for Jesus?

Apparently he's never read the New Testament...

@18, Moishe should have won on his years of experience dealing with kvetching Jews in the wilderness, plus he was a war hero.

@21: Meh, I feel like too many people would have been down on him for being a political insider, having been raised in the Egyptian royal family.

The best part about this, is that if there really are a bunch of write-ins for Jesus and Romney loses, then Republicans will be obligated to hate Jesus with all the venom that Democrats have for the Green Party.

Found this from David Jeremiah to be a balanced commentary for Christian voters.

I'm so happy to know without doubt that what has been said about Mitt Romney could not be further from the truth. I am a" Mormon" (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). We do not believe any of the things that were said. I am a witness of the reality of Our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that He lives and that his atonement will cover my sins and I am striving on a daily basis to become a better and more Christlike woman. I do not worship any man on this earth and no, Mitt Romney is NOT be labled the "chosen one" by any member of my faith. Our Savior Jesus Christ is the ONLY CHOSEN ONE. We do not worship Joseph Smith or any being other than Our Savior Jesus Christ. We believe the Bible to be the word of God and believe that the Book of Mormon is another witness of the literal reality of Our Savior Jesus Christ.
There are many misconceptions about my faith and I hope you will search to find what is true. Among those truths. We believe in marriage between a man and only ONE woman. We are NOT a cult. We believe in loving and serving our fellow men whether they agree with us or not. I invite you to go to the website www.mormon.org to find what is true about what we believe. I am certain you will be pleasantly surprised.
