Blameless

As everybody knows by now, Rep. Mark Foley has been under fire for having IM sex with one or more congressional pages. He has resign his congressional seat. He has also confessed that he is gay and that he has admitted himself to a detox clinic to deal with his addiction to alcohol. That should be enough to satisfy the Democratic party and those in the main stream media who will do anything to see George Bush and the Republican Party lose control of the White House, but it's not!

I didn't really want to write on this topic but everywhere you turn you get this daily barrage of garbage thrown in your face. Let's face it, it's that time of year...election time! People who follow politics will probably see the worse, most nasty, lowdown fights that they have ever witnessed before.

The upside in all of these political attacks is that maybe more men and women who lack character and integrity will not be running in future elections. The downside of these attacks is that maybe more men and women who POSSESS character and integrity will not be running in future elections. Who in their right mind wants to put their families through this kind of daily scrutiny?

God commands those who are appointed to leadership positions to lead "blameless" lives (Titus 1:6-9). Now more than ever, we need people who will stand up for what is right and live the kind of wholesome healthy lifestyles that encourages others to live. Good role models are severely lacking today. Years ago teachers, pastors and parents were role models, now it athletes and artist.

Sadly, politicians have always had a reputation of being crooked and dishonest. I guess the main stream media wouldn't have it any other way...great for ratings and their cause.

Sorry about the blogging layoff, i've been tired and busy. Who isn't these days, right?

This is exactly the problem with these scandals. They give the impression that all politicians are corrupt and that is unfair to those who do have integrity. They may be few and far between but it is still unfair to them to say that all politicians are corrupt.

LMC,
I guess it comes with the territory. Many people believe that all TV Evangelist or pastors are corrupt, and yes that is very unfair. Of course, we know better.

Now more than ever we do need blameless politicians to represent us. That is why, even though I am a Republican, tomorrow's post is going to trash a Republican (at least he says he's a Republican) running against Chet Edwards, a Texas representative (and a moderate Democrat) in Congress. I don't believe known liars should be elected, regardless of their party.

Great post and blessings! :)

The hypocrisy just gets me so fired up. When on the Repub side this happens the media and the Dems are "outraged". However when it is a Dem who does even worse (Congressman had sex with a 17 yr old male page) not only is there no outrage, no resignation he becomes Chairman of a committee and receives standing ovations by the Dems after censure vote. As much as there are bad apples in both parties, there is no equivalence on how the bad apples are handled by the parties.

Gayle,
Thanks!
Moderates stand for nothing and anything at the same time. Their core values change with the "poll numbers".

CT,
No question about it! Totally a double standard when it comes to the show of "outrage" in the two parties. The media bias is obvious too.
