An 11-year-old girl named Izzy has released a song and video (below) that praises Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and blames Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her party for various atrocities in the world, including genocide (video below).
Izzy, who identifies herself as a homeschooled student, said in a Nov. 4 press release on Christian News Wire: "I hope that this song, 'Christians -- Don't Stay Home on Election Day,' will show Christians that there is a big difference between Trump and Hilary. It is the difference between life and death."
The song blames Clinton for allowing Christians to be killed by ISIS, attacks Democrats for legal abortion and mentions that Trump said some "bad words," an apparent reference to him bragging in 2005 that he could sexually assault women because he was famous.
According to Izzy, the song is a homeschool project that she and her 13-year-old sister thought up after some Christian friends indicated they were not going to vote or vote for a third party.
"There are Christians who think they are being holy by not voting, but that's not true," Izzy added. "Like in the Good Samaritan parable Jesus told, if you walk on and ignore the cries, you are guilty."
Izzy's mother stated:
Millions of Christians sat out or voted third party the last two presidential elections which led to the Democrats taking over and causing millions of innocent lives to be lost. Under Obama and Hillary's watch, ISIS grew huge, and hundreds of thousands of Christians have had to flee their homes, while thousands more have been tortured, killed, and raped. If we allow this innocent blood to be shed by not voting for the one who will save lives, God will hold us accountable.
In more religious and political news, a Facebook page called "USA Patriots for Donald Trump" posted a meme on Oct. 5 that said Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia "fired 5 police chaplains for praying in Jesus name" while he was governor of Virginia in 2008.
The Facebook posting, which has been shared more than 26,000 times, links to a website called Truthfeed.com.
The Washington Post reported in 2008 that six troopers "resigned their voluntary positions as chaplains following the implementation of a policy that bans them from referring to Jesus Christ in public prayers."
At the time, Kaine's office said the decision was made by the State Police superintendent, Col. W. Steven Flaherty, who confirmed that he asked the volunteer chaplains to say nondenominational prayers at events that were sanctioned by the police department, which is part of the state government. Flaherty's request did not apply to private ceremonies or individual counseling.
Flaherty explained that his new advisory was made in response to a court ruling that said a Fredericksburg City Council member could not pray "in Jesus' name" during government meetings.
Kaine's then-spokesman Gordon Hickey said that the governor supported Flaherty's decision, and added: "Gov. Kaine is a man of faith and dedicated his life to that service. It's disappointing that [Republicans] would make such a political attack on Gov. Kaine and his faith."
