Miracles Will Never Cease

Let's see...It would have been November 1988. I was serving in the US Navy. I remember as if it were yesterday. My face was set and mind made up. I was bucking the "system" and by-George, I was right. Well, in hind sight and 20 some years of Life University later. Maybe not so much.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to tell what the "it" was. The last time I voted for a Democrat. Now listen, I am not a dyed-in-the-wool Republican. I believe what my daddy taught me, vote for the man, not the party. However, being a conservative- pro-strong defense- pro-life- homophobe, most of the right men in my book have been on the Right. But in 1988, Sam Nunn was chairman of the Senate Arms Committee, and from GA, and so I voted the Big D. In 1991, he voted against George Bush I in the Gulf War, and I felt betrayed by someone who had purported to be "strong on defense."

I have been cautious ever since. However, today I put my trust into faiths hands again, and voted for Vincent Sheheen. (sp?) for Governor. Democrat. Only time will tell. He may not even win the primary. But he has been an advocate for the folks here in this district and so I wish him success.

Oh, one more thing. I would not call MYSELF a homophobe, as I'm not really scared of homosexuals. However, I have read the Bible (see Romans 1-2) and my fear is for their eternal souls.

Steve, it took guts to write this, in my opinion, and I think that it is a great post. Well said!
