When Jesus spoke the most famous verse in the Bible (John 3:16), he was speaking to a man named Nicodemus. While reading a commentary (Henry) I came across this, regarding this man Nicodemus:
He was a ruler of the Jews, a member of the great sanhedrim, a senator, a privy-counsellor, a man of authority in Jerusalem. Bad as things were, there were some rulers well inclined, who yet could do little good because the stream was so strong against them; they were over-ruled by the majority, and yoked with those that were corrupt, so that the good which they wished to do they could not do; yet Nicodemus continued in his place, and did what he could, when he could not do what he would.
It occured to me that Joe Wilson is in much the same situation today! He is yoked by the liberal majority in Congress.
I think Representative Wilson should take Speaker Pelosi's offer to appologize on the floor of the US House of Representatives. I've taken the liberty to write his speach for him:
Speaker Pelosi, distinguished members, I've come here today to express my deapest regrets, I AM SORRY! I'm sorry that the President of the United States of America is a liar! I'm sorry that the people have been, repeatedly, misled by their own governement. I'm sorry that our grandchildren will still be paying for your private jets! I'm sorry that YOU, Mrs. Speaker, refuse to obey the very constitution you swore to uphold.
Thank you for you time. Now I have to go see how much money the non-existant right wing conservatives have deposited into my campagin fund.
I know I'd donate, if I got to watch THAT on CSPAN!
