A TIME FOR ANGER – GORDON STEWART

I am not personally religious in any dogmatic way, but Gordon Stewart says what I think many of us feel, regardless of religious persuasion. We may not have a specific religion, but that does not mean we do not believe in honor and justice. There is a place for anger, a place for standing up to wrong, and a time to say NO.

MITT ROMNEY’S ACT OF CONSCIENCE

Mitt Romney’s speech as a Senator-juror in the impeachment came as a surprise because he broke with his party’s ranks, and because he appealed to conscience and religion. No Senator-juror in the history of impeachment had stepped out of line from the party line. Citing the seriousness of the articles of impeachment against President Trump, Mr. Romney explained his reasons for voting to convict the president:

As a Senator-juror, I swore an oath, before God, to exercise “impartial justice.” I am a profoundly religious person. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential. I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the president, the leader of my own party, would be the most difficult decision I have ever faced. I was not wrong.

Senate Mitt Romney (R), February 5, 2020

  1. I admire him for having the guts to do what he thought was right.

    • He must have developed a conscience since he left Boston because he was a little weak in that department when he lived here. When I saw the headline, I actually called out to Garry: “Hey, it looks like Mitt has finally developed a conscience!” I’m glad but surprised. We knew the guy. Garry knew him well.

      • I was a little surprised as it was not my impression of him. I don’t know a lot about him other than that he is very rich and had aspirations to become President himself. Still he did the right thing and that’s more than can be said for the rest of them.

  2. I even had tears in my eyes, hearing that. This is what I call a social conscience. Amen – So be it (so it should be)
