  • The Commandments

    This kind of stuff is driving me crazy:

    said Steven Hopkins, a minister from Burnet Bible Church in Texas. "Americans are being arrested for standing up for the word of God."

    No, people will be arrested for attempting to impede the execution of a federal court order. There is nothing going on here that will result in anyone having to deny God, nor to stop people from attempting to promulgate Christianity if the monument is removed. Indeed, as a Christian, I would argue that there are far better ways to promote the cause of Christ than this.

    Roy Moore himself makes a similar argument when he says that he has the right to acknowledge God and that the federal courts are trying to take that away. This is not the case--as his capacity to acknowledge God is by no means limited to having a monument to the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the Judicial Building.

    (and, coincidentally, I used to live near Burnet)

    Ten Commandments monument may be removed early this week

    the most important characteristic of any leader is judgement. not intelligence (though that is useful), not experience (though that CAN be useful), not handsomeness. but judgement. for the simple reason that as a chief executive, so much revolves around who you choose to surround yourself with. they're the ones who decide what information you get and how that information is presented.
