A Reminder From Sen Cheryl Pflug

You may have seen the ads. They ran on a number of stations around the state of Washington this past Friday night during the Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics.

The ad?

It is Republican Senator Cheryl Pflug from conservative leaning Maple Valley and the 5th Legislative District, educating the state on the virtues of redefining marriage.

Brad Shannon, in an exclusive article for the News Tribune and the Olympian reminded us that Ms. Pflug, "Provided one of the key votes that passed a gay-marriage law in the Legislature this year."

Indeed she did.

She also betrayed her constituents by pretending to support the Republican Party positions on social issues---specifically marriage, in that she knew she was going to support redefining marriage as early as 2007.

Following the betrayal of her Party and her constituents, she was rewarded by Gov. Gregoire with a 5-year appointment to a growth management hearings board and a 6-figure salary, thus avoiding the need to face the voters in her district with her mask off.

She further withdrew her candidacy following the appointment, in such an untimely way as to not allow Kirby Wilbur and his Party to recruit strong candidates.

For this, the far left hails her as a woman of courage and values. And she carries their banner in an ad that sponsors promise will air extensively through out the state.

Self serving deception. Hypocrisy.

A reminder.

There are many candidates out there asking for your vote---promising or implying exactly what they know you need to hear. Some even running for the highest state offices.

Due to my personal injuries a week ago, we will likely not get a recommended list of candidates out for the primary, but will certainly have a list for the general election.

Cross check each candidate in your district. There are a number of lists out there, however, remember a pastor on the East Side recommended Republican Steve Litzow last election. Litzow, from Mercer Island, doesn't even pretend to hold our values, yet he was elected. While the pastor later withdrew his support, the word was out there.

Be discerning. Be aware of who is actually supporting these candidates as well as what they say they stand for. If they say they are Christian or have a faith orientation, find out what church they attend, that can often tell you a great deal about the person. Ask their pastor or people who attend the church about them.

Cheryl Pflug is a reminder and a living testament to the need to---

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.


  1. It's funny you should pick on Pflug. She's just one of a quickly growing number of Republicans who are coming to understand that denying gay couples equality in marriage is unjust.

    Take a look at what's playing out around the country. After New Hampshire passed marriage equality in 2009, Republicans gained a 3/4 supermajority in both chambers. An anti-gay repeal effort failed miserably, however -- the House rejected it 211-116. How many Republicans rejected the repeal? 109! More than half. Thank you, Republicans.

    It's also widely publicized how the Republican party was instrumental in getting marriage for same-sex couples passed in New York. Without Republican support, it would not have happened. They could have even prevented it and did not. Thank you again, Republicans.

    More than 70% of people 18-34 support equal marriage for same-sex couples. Republicans see the writing on the wall. You have only their tenuous support at this time.

    1. The republicans are not the only one who see the writing on the wall. The democrats think equal marriage has completely flipped as a wedge issue and are now putting support for it in their platform for the upcoming convention. They see it as already a net positive in firing up the base and generating turn out.

      But the republicans have a bigger issue, unless they can figure out how to suppress almost all the latino vote in their fake anti voter fraud efforts, demographic trends indicate they'll be obsolete as a party in a generation. Even Texas is on it's way to becoming a swing state!

    2. RINO's have been around for quite some time, what's needed is polichristians who stand for biblical values regardless of which way the wind is blowing.

      There is equality in marriage, any man may marry a woman and vice versa. Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve or Eve and Sue either. Perversion is always unjust.

    3. Polichristians!

      I love it. I hope that term catches on. I'll start using it. Thanks.

    4. Since when do Repubs think same sex marriage is un just. Romney & Ryan are such severe Conservs they want to out law IVF. They vote for something when there is a pay off. How naive can you get..

    5. Many if not most republicans are against same sex marriage. They want to impose their beliefs on everyone but we are seeing well known republicans acting in favor of same sex marriage. They'll get more votes and favors by acting supportive.

  2. 12:24 Gary isn't "picking on Cheryl", he is pointing out that she misled her constitutents and her party. She used the good will and trust of conservatives to elect her because she pretended to share their beliefs. She used people to gain a career in politics and ended up with a good retirement and high paying job. I voted for her. She is a fake.

    1. To say Phlug is a fake is true but an under statement. Don't let that nauseous sweet act of hers fool you. She is calculating and hard as nails and makes the tea party folks look like liberals.

  3. Some people think they can change the meaning of love.

    I wonder if they got tired of suffering. I wonder if they wished they could have some kind of relief, as if the road of life became too difficult for them to bear. Now they boast in some new thing that is as old as corruption is I suppose. I wonder if they are seeking something for themselves, something like recognition for leadership in the new way they are apparently going to go. They seem to embrace iniquity. They seem to have lost their endurance. What will they do when that which is perfect arrives?

  4. Why doesn't someone address Phlug's drinking problem? She is a self serving hypocrite. Why is she now about to serve on a growth comm. for which she is clearly not qualified? For the money and attention, that's the name of her game. She is a scary person to have in any public office. I hope they dig through this mess and investigate all parties involved. This is what is wrong with our gov't.
