I have watched politics in Saline County for years and never have I seen it this bad. Friend against friend and family members against other family members; not unlike the civil war. We have a war going on right here in this county. Hatred and for what, I ask? A county position that in the larger scheme of things doesn't make or break the real issues this country and our county are facing.
People not going to vote for a certain candidate because they saw them talking/walking with a candidate they despise. The hatred being spewed against each other on this site, facebook, newspapers, anywhere a voice can be heard. Are we going to recover from this election just to face another that is more disgusting and vile? I hope not.
If your favorite candidate doesn't win, please work with the one that does. I can't remember where it is right now but God's Holy Word tells us to pray for those in charge, He put them there. (Not a quote.)
I've struggled with my conscience over whether just reading these posts is considered a sin in God's eyes. I've seen posts that downgrade the Bible, God's Holy words, that are vile, name calling and hateful. (No, I'm not a Bible Thumper, just a Believer that is giving up on all this bickering and fighting.)
I believe there will be no winners in this race because of the way it has been conducted. I just hope friends can remain friends regardless of how they vote and that the vindictiveness and get even attitudes will stop.
WWJD? Not this.
