Our local newspaper recently ran an editorial chastising leaders and citizens for keeping a current controversy alive. The underlying theme of the editorial was there is nothing that can be done, let it go and move on. This is the same newspaper that goes through their archives looking for propaganda to republish about people and events in the community so they can keep stories alive that happened one to 10 years ago. The words of Jesus can just as easily be applied to businesses and organizations, as to individuals, “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye” (Matt 7:3-5 NIV).

-----Maybe nobody remembers what a plank is. The current progressive movement has abundant moral advise for everyone and code for breaking the backs of the wayward to boot. Say the wrong word and your public life is toast. And as poor Paula Dean was utilized for demonstration, say the wrong word thirty years ago and your public life is still toast. Most of these bullies do practice what they preach. But their problem is that they don’t really know a thing about what should be preached. They hate righteousness and love wickedness. “An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous, but he whose way is straight is an abomination to the wicked.” (Prov 29:27)

Love you all,
