Citing the incompatibility of Democratic Party positions with his Christian faith, formerly Democratic state Rep. Francis Thompson announced Friday he will change parties and join the GOP.

Thompson’s party switch gives Louisiana Republicans a supermajority in the state’s House for the first time in the state’s 210-year history, according to Newsweek. …

“There are values and principles that I firmly hold onto that guide my decisions. My conservative voting record over my years in the Legislature speaks for itself,” he said.

“The push the past several years by Democratic leadership on both the national and state level to support certain issues does not align with those values and principles that are a part of my Christian life.” …

“I’ve struggled with this and have been thinking about it for more than a year, when it has become clear that the Republican Party better represents my values and philosophy today,” he said. …

Louisiana Republican Party chairman Louis Gurvich said the party switch was “further evidence of Louisiana’s yearning for conservative values and a rejection of Washington liberal politics,” according to the News Star. …

The Democrat party officially removed all mention of GOD from their platform years ago. So any person that believes in and trusts GOD should be in conflict in the Democrat party. “Come out from among them and be ye separate!” FATHER GOD please send YOUR Wisdom and direction to YOUR people and let them live GODLY according to YOUR WORD alone in JESUS NAME!

Representative Robert Thompson of Louisiana showed tremendous courage in switching to the Republican Party For God has not given us a spirit of timidity but of power, love and sound thinking (II Tim. 1:7). May God grant him peace and courage as he adjusts to his new working environment.

We pray for a Tsunami of righteousness in both parties. Convincing and conviction of the Holy Spirit to go past personal political motives and pray for renewed passion for God. The one true God,Jesus Christ,the Holy. A reformation that rises up above all human effort and embraces the true move of God for this time.and season.

Let the awakening come. Prophecy being fulfilled by this action and there will be a tsunami of those who cannot abide in the unrighteous actions of the party and society around them. They will be changing the sides they have been aligned with. Lord draw them in. Awaken the hearts of the many that have been asleep and let your glory shine forth.
