If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything


Recommended Posts

Joe Wright opened the new session of the Kansas Senate with this message that makes a lot of practical sense.

We know Your Word says,'Woe to those who call evil good', but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions & Thoughtfulness and called it Ambition!

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of speech and expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out in protest.

How could it hurt the political process, if a few more messages like this were included to remind the politicians of who they are supposed to represent and our sworn to serve?

They did not need to walk out in protest, but I understand why some did. He could easily have avoided that faux paus of mixing church and state, by leaving out two lines, leaving us with this message, instead:

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

I totally accept what he said, but a government proceeding was not the proper forum for it. Meanwhile, why don't you tell us who Joe Wright is, and put his words into context for us? I mean, was this the opening prayer, and is he the chaplain of the state legislature? Was this simply a speech from the floor?
