Is nothing sacred anymore, is forever just another word? The rock star Meatloaf famously posed these questions. And we’re singing along with him, wondering if nothing is sacred anymore, after seeing how some politicians decided to treat Easter this year. Even the holiest day for Christians is now just another occasion for partisan diatribes and politicking.
Thanks for another timely and important "A Public Witness". While it would be nice to have politicians with sufficient integrity to not debase places and times of worship with their political incantations, it would be even better for Pastors to "Just Say No" when asked if a politician can speak in a worship service. Pastors have no obligation to help a politician discrete worship to God, they do have an obligation to "render unto God" what rightfully belongs to Him and Him alone.
