What did the voting across the country on Tuesday have to say to us?
by Charlie Leck
The results of local elections all across the nation on Tuesday say something very interesting to which the Republican Party may indeed need to pay attention. The conservative voice of America appears to be telling the Republicans that they have gone too far to the right – that they need to straighten up and move back to a more moderate and conservative position. This is not strictly my position, but it seems to be that of political analysts all over America.
The best explanation of Tuesday’s results come from E. J. Dionne, Jr., one of the best political observers in the country. [Click here for Dionne’s explanation!]
This verse from scripture, sent to me by Sojourners speaks a good warning to the Republicans.
"Be wise when you engage with those outside the faith community; make the most of every moment and every encounter. When you speak the word, speak it gracefully (as if seasoned with salt), so you will know how to respond to everyone rightly." - Colossians 4:5-6
