Robert Gibbs, Obama’s former Press Secretary, made a statement recently, and I have an issue with the content. Gibbs was responding to a comment made by Sen. Rick Santorum regarding Obama’s “phony theology,” and I quote Gibbs: “It’s time to have a debate on our political positions, but not question each other’s character and faith.” Is he kidding me?
We must question the character of any man wanting to be president of this country, and secondly, where would this country be without its faith in God? The candidate must have faith in God and have faith in this the greatest country in the world, its people and the United States Constitution.
I recently read the book, “Being George Washington,” by Glenn Beck. There was a quote in the book that stayed with me. It happened not to be made by George Washington but by Benjamin Franklin on June 27, 1787, in the state House in Philadelphia at the Constitutional Convention, and I quote: “I have lived long, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth — that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?”
Need I say any more?
