With this goal in mind, religious leaders and many political powerbrokers alike, are scrambling to support efforts aimed at uniting the world's religions. For the month of February alone, at least five major interfaith events are being planned. Four of the five will target Americans, while the fifth event will have a global audience. Here's a summary.....
Two of the four candidates have met the arcane qualifications for public funding. One who did not, liberal bureaucrat Marla Stephens of the state Public Defender’s office, spins her decision not to take the tax money this way: “we want to have the resources we need to get our message out to the whole state. This is a campaign to bring justice to all of us, rich people and poor people and everyone in-between."
......Three other freshmen governors plan to make that clear right off the bat. Governors John Kasich (R-Ohio) and Scott Walker (R-Wisc.) have announced that their states are joining Florida's massive lawsuit against ObamaCare. Oklahoma's Governor, Mary Fallin (R), said the Sooners will file their own case--bringing the grand total of states now suing the law to 25, or half of the entire country. Elsewhere, former Governor Tim Pawlenty is fighting another law--Congress's repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." During an interview earlier this week with our friends at American Family Association, he refused to back down from a position that three of the four military service chiefs share, which is that allowing open homosexuality in our ranks will devastate national security. "I have been a public and repeat supporter of maintaining 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,'" he said. "There's a lot of reasons for that, but if you look at how the combat commanders and the combat unions feel about it, the results of those kinds of surveys were different than the ones that were mostly reported in the newspaper, and that is something I think we need to pay attention to. But I have been a public supporter of maintaining 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and I would support reinstating it as well." Those are the kind of leaders we need in Washington--people who aren't afraid to stand with voters and reflect who we really are as a nation.
