“Governor Sanford of South Carolina joins the growing army of social conservatives who decided to get a jump on destroying their own marriage before same-sex couples could do it for them.”
Peter Sagel NPR Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me
There's many things I could say, but I don't have time right now to think them through. But this is an excellent point. And a reason why I don't think the church should spend time trying to legislate morality. Not that I'm comparing Sanford to the church, but the way to bring about a revival of Christian morals in our country is not by making laws. We try that and all they have to do is point to the statistics within the church that show how prevalent abortion and divorce and such are within our walls. Our focus should be on purifying ourselves and allowing the image of Christ to flow out of us and effect the world. If not, we're just going to have people making jokes like this about us.
