Senator Scott Brown, R-Mass, announced yesterday that if Harry Reid can get it to a vote, he will join Reid and other liberals in voting for repeal of the military policy of "Don't Ask-Don't Tell".
Brown will become the 61st vote, thus giving Reid, President Obama and others what they need to keep their promise to homosexual activists. The question now is; "Can they get the new stand alone bill to the floor before Congress adjourns?" If not, it is not likely to be considered by Congress again for some time---if ever.
John McCain and others have said they will do everything possible to block the repeal because they feel it is not in the best interest of our military readiness. Leaders in actual field combat agree.
Also, be reminded. Many social conservatives rejoiced when Brown won the seat Ted Kennedy had held for so many years.
The argument is consistently made that a "moderate" Republican is always better than a liberal Democrat.
Are they? Better for whom? The Party? While there is a measure of merit to that view regarding fiscal issues, most people of faith become involved in political activism because of their deeply held social beliefs, as well as their fiscal beliefs.
Which brings me to this:
Brown is not with us on these issues. Nor will the next "moderate" Republican who seeks the Washington State Governor's office.
As the race for Washington State Governor begins, if it has not already unofficially begun, a few Christian leaders will be telling you a certain so-called "moderate" will be much better than Gregoire, Insley, or whomever.
Will he? Why? What is most important? Party? Or Principle?
Be Discerning. Be Certain. Be Prayerful.
