I don’t think any of you need to be told what to think, but it is not hard to imagine that many (like myself), like to hear other well reasoned opinions about the more difficult topics of the day. Occasionally, we might even have an epiphany. So when Isabelle Terry wrote RightMi.com with the following:
There is a saying in Lansing: What happens in Lansing after 5 PM stays in Lansing.
It is a small suburb of Vegas in the debauchery sense.
Deals over taxpayer money suddenly turn to deals over acts of heterosexual sex, homosexual sex (likely more rampant than the heterosexual sex judging by the huge numbers of effeminate men romping around the MIGOP) and drugs use. The politicos are sluts in money, power, and physical highs.
Players play, secrets are kept.
That is… unless you are speaking the truth.
You see, secrets are kept…. ONLY if the pols go along with the political elite. Todd and Cindy would’ve been ok, their secret kept, if they had become Republican squish. RINO’s and the political elite don’t care about morality or anything else …. They only care about retaining power, chasing more power & money and chasing after slutty physical comforts. Aside from their suspicious endorsement of Little Ronna RINO for MIGOP Chair …. Todd and Cindy have held their end of the bargain with their Freedom Loving, Tea Party, Liberty and Conservative constituents. And THAT is THE unforgivable sin in Lansing:
THOU SHALT NOT BEAR TRUE WITNESS TO THE POLITICAL ELITE. … THOU SHALT GO ALONG TO GET ALONG.
Funnily enough…. This is EXACTLY why TRUMP is being attacked so! He dare to speaketh the TRUTH!
Free Market Competition, the preservation of the principles held in the Constitution, low taxes, a secure border, and espousing Judaeo-Christian principles of morality, extolling hard work/ gumption…. ALL threaten the power and hold of the political elite.
So I’m ECSTATIC that Todd and Cindy have not resigned!
Yeah, what they did was terrible. But here’s a news flash: Christians sin too! And it is precisely why the hold fast to atonement, redemption and salvation in Jesus Christ. You won’t see Cindy and Todd holding Adultery Pride Parades to trick others into engaging in sinful behavior. They will always hold up Traditional Marriage and family values even in light of their personal failings.
If we asked them to be perfect…. Shame on us. We simply elected them to do the job. We did not elect them to be beyond sin.
Todd and Cindy have not lost the moral high ground in their service to the good people in their districts. If sex outside of the marital bed were the litmus test in Lansing…. The capital city would be a ghost town that’s even more run down than Detroit.
I said “yeah, I can relate.”
We can find all the usual suspects gloating over the failings of these two ‘tea’ Types, and comparing, and also eagerly pointing out that others who relate to our values have in the past made a mistake or two as well, and all of this adds to the brand being tarnished. I realized that I wasn’t about to dump on a couple of those others, and am not about to start now.
Even if I have agreed previously that Courser and Gamrat should resign, I just don’t feel that way any longer.
Christ was/is all about forgiveness. The blessing that we receive is premised not upon the good works we can get government to do, but in how we accept Jesus as our savior.
We sin. We fail. We screw up, and even though we make those mistakes, we are salvageable if we seek redemption. God sees us as renewed through the sacrifice of his son on the cross.
We also need to accept His forgiveness.
Simply stop and consider what this means.
And thanks Ms. Terry.
