About the great Governor of Wisconsin. I wonder if he will run for President.
From The Blaze:
Scott Walker Says He Won’t Cave to Atheists’ Demand to Pull Bible Verse
“Governor Walker will not remove the post on his social media,” Walker spokeswoman press secretary Laurel Patrick said in an email. “The verse was part of a devotional he read that morning, which inspired him, and he chose to share it.”
Patrick said Walker’s social media accounts are frequently used “to engage with Wisconsinites on matters of public policy” as well as to give constituents “a sense of who he is.”
She said the scripture reference he posted on March 16 was simply “a reflection of his thoughts for the day.”
Walker’s response came after the Freedom From Religion Foundation wrote him a letter this week asking that he delete the message, which read simply, “Philippians 4:13,” from his official Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The popular New Testament Bible verse reads, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Freedom From Religion Foundation [A Madison-based hate group.] co-president Dan Barker told TheBlaze Friday that while he finds the posting of the Bible verse both “rude” and “arrogant,” his group likely won’t sue over it.
“We’re still complaining about it, but we can’t do anything more than complain,” Barker said. “We think it’s inappropriate for him to use his official page to promote his view.”
Barker said that the Freedom From Religion Foundation might take definitive action if Walker decided to post Bible messages on a more regular basis, but that in this case they will likely “look the other way.”
“We’re not going to take any legal action on one abuse,” he said. “And it is an abuse — and he should know it’s one.”
I read Walker’s book Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge, about the surreal battle waged by the Left when the Governor pushed through legislation to curtail (for once) the immense, budget-draining power of unions. He turned the state’s $3.6 billion deficit into a nearly $1 billion surplus in a couple of years. That apart, reading the account of what happened as union activists and others descended on Madison for weeks of unreal chaos is, itself, worth the price of the book. Prescinding from your possible party affiliation, you can get a real insight into how the Left thinks and works. Also, in the book, he occasionally touches on the role of his faith.
UPDATE: Related to the above, today Gov. Walker signed a $541 million tax cut for Wisconsin taxpayers. HERE
