John McCain – decorated war hero, veteran civil servant, Republican presumptive candidate and a man with an eye for the ladies.
What’s next, dude? Halle Berry and Angela Bassett to join your advisory council? Kate Beckinsale to head a foreign relations task force? Aishwayra Rai to sponsor a Middle East USO tour for the soldiers? What a dream job this septuagenarian is making.
Anywhoo… evidently since he introduced the rest of the country to “Sarah Palin, Medicine Woman,” Christian circles have been moving around the news so much we should just call them hula hoops now. At least that’s the word according to this story on CBN News.
“It’s an absolutely brilliant choice,” said Mathew Staver, dean of Liberty University School of Law. “This will absolutely energize McCain’s campaign and energize conservatives.” Staver called Palin a “a woman of faith who has a strong position on life, a consistent opinion on judges.. She’s the complete package.”
Just in time for Christmas, here’s HiScrivener’s question about said package, “Does any of it matter?” The ballyhoo about her faith, the hype over the pick, the dirty old man tracking the McCain campaign with binoculars. Does it matter?
Other than Dan Quayle, can you think of a Veep candidate that made you change your mind about your vote for President? Not so much.
She is a bold woman of faith, and for that, I’m thankful. We need some reality with God in the White House. McCain tapdances around his faith. Biden isn’t that serious about his (a die-hard Catholic with no gumption about abortion?!). And Obama… well, what hasn’t been said about his. However, how close will her ability to pray and intercede for this nation get to making real decisions about energy, the economy or the War?
There will be so much more said, heard and thought about Sarah Palin that the nation will discover, the McCain campaign will divulge, the media will dissect and the Church should pray for deliverance. That said, let us not forget WHY WE VOTE, Wall Watchers.
When you march to the polls in November, don’t do it because McCain picked a woman Veep or Obama didn’t. That would be asinine. The reason the body of Christ chooses a president is what ticket will make faith-based issues paramount – caring for the poor, the unborn, the impoverished and unheard. We all have voices and in November, you get to shout out loud. Just make sure you are backing up those cat calls with scriptures when you do. Your vote could matter more to the Church than you think.
