Nothing is politically right
Carved on the
ceiling of the
Missouri Senate Chamber
(Dec 21) reported that Les Kristt,
Secretary of the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce, “said there were
issues with gambling; morals and economics.
He argued that gambling is no longer a moral issue, as churches
have long paid their bills through bingo. New York State has every
lottery game available.” Are we to believe that church and state
morality? With this kind of reasoning we should all approve: abortion,
prostitution , gay marriage, violence, sex and profanity on TV,
the Internet, genicide and euthanasia -
each of these is approved by some government and/or church. Perhaps
standard should be considered. Just because some church (religion) or a
government or the people approve does not mean that God approves.
pride, selfish ambition and envy are often motivators for each of
these. If you
do not believe in God look at the facts! Countless
studies have shown that gambling destroys
individuals and families, increases crime, promotes prostitution and
and has long lasting harmful effects on children. It does not take a
scientist to figure this one out. Check it out - http://www.ncalg.org/;
Perhaps it is time for a class action lawsuit. Are we a society where
no “right” or “wrong”? Where there is no “truth”? Where
everyone does what is right in his own
eyes? With freedom comes responsibility.
Our representatives are expected to be responsible.

evil is that good men do nothing.” ( Edmund Burke)
Rise up good men and do something! What
if the Bible is true?
