Putting God in second place.

"We need to stop wearing the righteousness of God on this floor," he said. "This is not the church. I wish we'd stop putting the church where it doesn't belong."

Dem. Rep. Johnny Shaw

  1. Oh, if only more politicians got that. Unfortunately, it is illegal for a preacher to hold state office. Even the ones who do make sense need to obey the law.

  2. IF THERE IS ANY PLACE WHERE CHRISTIANS NEED TO TAKE A STAND FOR THEIR BELIEFS, IT IS IN BOTH STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!!!

    OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON THE FAITH OF OUR FOREFATHERS, WHO ESTABLISHED THE FACT THAT ALL PEOPLE HAVE THE GOD-GIVEN RIGHT TO LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPNESS!

    PEOPLE OF FAITH, ALL ACROSS THIS NATION, HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ELECTING PEOPLE OF INTEGRITY AND FAITH, WHO WILL MAKE THE LAWS THAT PROVIDE FOR JUSTICE AND PROTECTION FOR ALL CITIZENS, AND THAT THE MORALLY RIGHT THINGS WILL BE DONE TO UPHOLD INTEGRITY IN THE LAWS THAT WE HAVE.

    MY FELLOW CHRISTIANS, IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN OR ACTIVE IN POLITICS, PLEASE KNOW THAT GOD CALLS US TO SERVE HIM THROUGH TAKING INTEREST IN WHO IS BEING ELECTED, WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN, AND WHAT THEY PLAN TO DO TO MAKE OUR STATE AND OUR COUNTRY A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE! WON'T YOU PLEASE GIVE THIS YOUR MOST SERIOUS AND PRAYERFUL CONSIDERATION?

  3. The State Constitution says Johnny Shaw can't hold office-he doesn't care.

    It is more than shocking that a so-called minister of the Gospel would not be a proponent of religious liberty and of putting God first in all things, but this isn't surprising these days either...all Shaw's remarks do is prove the Democratic Party's ever-increasing status as the Party of Death.

  4. The Church (ekklesia or called out ones) is not a building, or a religion, or a 501c3 non-profit corporation with hired employees (except in the eyes of the state and those that promote a clergy/laity divide).

    How does Johnny remove the Church from government and not by definition remove the believer?
