2012.02.15 Chipper Connin: Compromise is a problem

Written by David Green.

Compromise (not a lack of) is one of America’s biggest problems. Slavery was accepted in our founding by one vote. Because of that compromise millions have suffered. This happened again when the Church compromised with Darwinists instead of standing firm on Genesis, and so had no defense in the Scopes trial. Because of that, evolution was allowed to be taught in our schools.

Then because of compromise with the liberal Atheists, God was kicked out of our schools in 1962. In 1963 S.A.T. scores dropped by 80 points and have never recovered, America began hemorrhaging jobs, and picking up increasing debt to make up for it. Then our increasingly liberal judges and media said abortion was okay in the 1970s and the downhill moral slope increased. Today we see abortion, gay marriage and hate crimes laws, as well as increasing legislation taking ever more rights and liberties away.  

Yes, Jesus is about love, but not about compromise, or coexistence with false doctrines. Our troubles stem from the Church sitting back silently while being told where they can speak and even told that politics is taboo from the pulpit. We need to allow our pastors to speak freely without worrying about the Church’s tax exempt status being put in jeopardy.   

In short we need our lawmakers to take a stand for Judeo-Christian values.  If the courts get in the way, remove the judges. They are not appointed for life, only for the term of good behavior.  

We need to quit compromising our principles in the ballot box and voting for who we think is electable, and instead vote first for those whose values represent those of our Christian (the vast majority were) founding fathers.

Then if multiple candidates fill that role, look at who is most electable. When we compromise on this, we end up with “moderates” in office. These are people who have no real foundational beliefs and so won’t stand up for the Constitution and our Nation. They perform poorly and so we lose the next election and continue the downward slide. It is much better to vote based on what is right and maybe lose an election to the other side than to put moderates in office and continue to make the problem worse. Maybe a few lost elections will wake people up. Stand for something people! Quit compromising with the enemies of the Constitution!

    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
