The appointment of
Judge John Roberts has caused a stir between both sides of the political
aisle. The liberal wing of the government claims
that Roberts is too conservative and will overturn the Roe vs. Wade law
concerning abortion. The conservative wing claims
that Roberts will interpret the law and not make it.
I as a Christian have concerns about this choice just
as everyone does. My concern is that Roberts will
not receive the up or down vote like he and all candidates deserve and
will not be appointed. I honestly hate it when
our elected members “play” politics instead of working together to make
our country better for all peoples. Both parties
in government have gotten to the point where it is so hard to trust any of
them. This leaves us with a very hard choice when
election times come along.
Being as how I am a Christian, I vote for the party
that agrees the “MOST” with my Christian beliefs. I think every person who
claims to be a Christian, should vote as the Bible teaches us.
Unfortunately, most persons vote their pocketbooks or personality
Below is a letter to the editor I sent to my local
newspaper. I would challenge all God fearing
Christians to do the same. It’s time we stop
being afraid to speak our minds. We should stand
for what we believe. How tough is it going to be
when Jesus Himself stands before us and ask this question?
“Why when you had so many chances to
speak for me, you decided to just remain quiet?
Were you ashamed of me? Were you afraid you might
hurt someone's feelings? Were you afraid you
might not be a part of the click?”
Now I don’t know about you, but I for
sure do not want to have to answer questions like that to my Lord and
Savior! Do you?

Judge John Roberts,
President Bush's pick to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court,
brings with him one of the most impressive resumes any nominee to the high
court has had in a generation.
Judge Roberts has succeeded in both the
public and private sectors — from his time as a law clerk to Chief Justice
William Rehnquist, to a brilliant career as a private-practice attorney,
to his current position as a judge on the D.C. Circuit appeals court. Most
impressively, as deputy U.S. solicitor general, he argued 39 cases before
the Supreme Court.
Despite this impeccable track record,
though, Roberts can expect to face stiff opposition from Senate liberals
like Ted Kennedy and Chuck Schumer and anti-Bush pressure groups like
MoveOn.org. They've already begun assailing his nomination, desperate to
keep off the bench anyone who believes a judge's job is to interpret law,
not make it.
Any purely partisan bid to
block Judge Roberts must not be allowed to succeed. He deserves a fair
hearing, and a fair vote in the Senate.
If you sent this letter to your local
newspaper, thank you! If not, we pray you will still
consider how you vote in the future and make a stand for Jesus!
