Governor Youngkin Took the Wide Gate and the Broad Path

Matthew 7: 13-14 (NKJV):13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 [a]Because narrow is the gate and [b]difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Governor Glenn Youngkin of Virginia has been an object of celebration in some Republican circles. He comes from a business background; and is not considered to be among the most conservative Republican high-ranking elected officials. As a general rule, it is very difficult for a truly conservative Republican to get elected to be governor in nearly any state.

But several days ago, Youngkin signed into law a bill that made gay marriage the “law of the land” in the state of Virginia.

Yes, the Supreme Court ruled nearly a decade ago. But this man was by no means required or obligated to sign this into law. That was his decision, for which he is responsible.

He might escape the hot seat by signing this bill. But he did precisely the wrong thing.

  1. Yes, he did not do the right thing in this instance. Nevertheless as a new Virginian I am thankful to have Governor Youngkin as the leader of the Commonwealth

    1. I can understand your feeling that way, Fred. McCrory was the only Republican governor we have had since I have lived here, and he was pretty lackluster. I don’t know as much about the one or two that preceded him.

      Youngkin certainly represented a significant improvement over his predecessor. Overall, I think he is moderate-to-conservative, although it would be hard to characterize him as a consistent conservative.
