Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

To those who are calling for us to praise Jeb Bush, I respectfully request them to read this article:

Activist: Jeb Bush avoided protesters
Governor cancels appearance at Good Friday service

An activist pressing to save Terri Schiavo's life believes Jeb Bush canceled a public appearance at the last minute today in order to avoid confrontation from citizens who contend the governor can use his executive powers to intervene in the case.

Bush was expected to attend an outdoor Good Friday service at 12:30 p.m. at Florida State University in Tallahassee, the state capital.

Rev. Patrick Mahoney, who attended the event with demonstrators, noted with irony that part of the liturgy Bush would have read with the participants included the following text, entitled "The Fifth Station of the Cross":

"Lord Jesus, sometimes I don't want to do what is right or to help someone in need, but you want me to respond positively to the needs of others in my life. Help me to say 'yes' and be willing to give heroic assistance to all who are in need."
"It is clear that Governor Bush canceled his scheduled participation in this Stations of the Cross service out of fear and guilt of seeing supporters of Terri Schiavo pleading for her life," Mahoney said.

"Our prayer for Governor Bush is the same prayer he would have prayed publicly on this Good Friday, had he kept his scheduled appointment."

Matthew 10:22 (King James Version)

22And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Note that scripture does NOT say, "but he who makes a good show of it at first and then chickens out when the going gets tough shall be saved."
