Picking on a Commissioner or a President (October 14, 2015)
Some in mainstream media scoffed at a Blount County, Tennessee, commissioner’s recent resolution that opposed the Supreme Court’s same-sex “marriage” decision and asked God if, by acknowledging the Court’s wrong, He might spare their County from His judgment when it fell on America. But those who derided this commissioner need to remember that they also deride one of America’s most venerated politicians, Abraham Lincoln.
In 1863, with regard to slavery, Lincoln penned these similar words: “It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”
In our opinion, we need more elected officials willing to align themselves with Mr. Lincoln’s views regarding God and civil government than those of the liberals in the mainstream media, who we suggest should take up their complaints with Mr. Lincoln.
