It seems that no matter how ignorant of the Bible people are, there is one verse that everyone knows. No, it’s not John 3:16. Some people still don’t know that one; however, everyone seems to know Matthew 7:1, wherein Jesus says, “Judge not, that ye be not judged” (KJV). In fact, the less of the Bible people know, the more they’re prone to know and repeat this verse. If we had a nickel for every time someone accused us of “intolerantly” violating this verse, we could pay our server costs and possibly quit our day jobs. - Kim Olsen
Special: Why It's Wrong for Law Enforcement to Negotiate with Bentley
We have only just finished a blog on facing legal consequences of criminal actions. Now we hear that Bentley is negotiating with law enforcement officials (we assume attorney general's office) about stepping down. Make no mistake, it's the right thing for our governor to do; however, he should not be able to simply brush off the consequences of his criminal actions while in office. Granted, most of his suspect actions have been personal in nature, but many have actually been illegal. Is is all right for him to have used taxpayer dollars for himself and his mistress? Is it kosher for him to have threatened employees? Is it cricket for him to have made up false legal claims against his political enemies (that one we can really identify with)? No, it isn't.
Unfortunately, at this point, we have little say in what happens tomorrow... The Staff at Shoalanda Speaks
