I watched the election returns last night on one of the conservative networks.
It is certainly possible to attribute the defeats in Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky to typical Republican/ conservative fecklessness and lackluster efforts turning out the vote.
But one commentator made a statement that resonated. When the Ohio abortion constitutional amendment was being discussed, he said, “We have a people problem”.
That is undeniably true. The outcome in Ohio is deeply rooted in human sin. The sad reality that the majority voted in the manner they did is a very sad commentary.
It also seems to be true that we continue to be a nation under God’s judgment.
