11. Thread not hijacked. Much of NYS uses same e-voting system as the Phillipines.
This is a thread about faith-based propaganda.

In the Phils. the culture is apparently such that it's OK for an election official to talk about God in the context of elections and voting systems. That's their business.

But here, we have other faith-based advocates. They advocate for computerized vote-counting and ask us to have faith in such an unobservable system.

I was trying to make an analogy. Get it?

The fact that NY may allow the same vendor the Phils. use to count many of our votes is coincidental. But the religious invocation in the OP is similar to the faith that New Yorkers are being asked to place in the same new voting machines by our own elected and appointed officials.
