Head of failed Washington campaign: God laughs at your equality

by Jeremy Hooper

This is how Joseph Backholm, head of the failed Preserve Marriage Washington coalition, is salving his electoral wounds:

Friends, this battle is not over. In the end, we cannot lose because truth is always vindicated. Every lie is ultimately exposed as such. And when the history of this anomaly has been written, may it be said of us that a temporary political setback not only did not weaken our commitment to Screen Shot 2012-11-12 At 4.34.58 Pm truth, but strengthened it.

There are all sorts of corny clichés or scenes from inspirational movies that could be used to analogize moments like these.

But it will always be true that our character is determined not by what happens, but how we respond.

There is no need for fear. And if you're inclined to feel fearful, consider the following.

Has it ever occurred to you that nothing has ever occurred to God? It's true. He has never learned something that changed how he viewed things. He already knows everything, and I assure you, He's not afraid. He who sits in the heavens laughs…

If it was up to us to fix all the world's problems, we should be terrified. But it isn't. And that's why He told us so many times to "fear not".

Well heck, let's just send our human legislatures home! In fact, why should we vote, sign, veto, rule, fund, manage, or adjudicate anything? After all, it's not our civil policy—it's His.

Then we woke up and realized our roads need repair.
