Faith-Based Governance

Verily, I say unto you, this is like shooting fish in a barrel…

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, still clinging to office after admitting to an extramarital affair, wrote in an opinion piece released Sunday that God will change him so he can emerge from the scandal a more humble and effective leader.

They must like drama in South Carolina. They don’t elect some boring person who does their job and takes care of state business instead of funny business.

In the opinion, Sanford vows to work with lawmakers he’s long fought and cites scripture and his faith in God — just as he’s done in his few public appearances since admitting the affair.

I always wonder why God never seems to want these people to repent, resign, and pay back any state money they have wrongly used. Are Christians so scarce that God has to recycle adultering evangelists right back into the pulpit with hardly a Sunday off and lying politicians back into the Governor’s office? How come God never tells them to do stuff they don’t want to do–like repent and end the affair before they get caught?
