In an effort to investigate and support the best person to represent the good people of PGCoâ€™s District 6, I started my search in the opposite of my usual direction: I checked out the Republican, Day Gardner.Â
First thing I found was a posting where she gave her opinion on the Presidentâ€™s omission of the words â€œby the creatorâ€ from a Sept. 2010, speech in which heÂ paraphrasedÂ excerpts fromÂ The Declaration of Independence.Â Her conclusion wasÂ â€œ…a real Christian wouldnâ€™t do that.â€Â Of course her posting included insinuations that the President is Muslim.Â Now would a real Christian do and say things like that?
Watch the President’s 2010 speech, if you haven’t already:
I have no problemÂ if youÂ disagree with the President’s political/fiscal policies or his liberal stance on issues but when you strike out with the wingnut jabs at his faith because you don’t like the way he came to conversion, I can’t support you as a candidate.Â I can’t even take you seriously.Â Your digital footprint isÂ outlined inÂ baseless accusations and filled with the type of Franklin Graham-ishÂ Christian rhetoric that caused the Apostle Paul to conflict with Peter and his religious crew.Â Paul “withstood them to their face.”
In a Gazette article, Day Gardner, says she’s “considering” running in District 6 race because “she is unhappy with how the council operates.”Â She goes on to say,Â â€œWe need fresh ideas, new people to mix it up to get real change.â€
This kind of religion bating and fear mongering behavior is not indicative of change.Â It’s theÂ same old junk we, the voting public, haveÂ been trying to get away from.Â Â Â
Can’t wait to meet the rest of the candidates.Â I’ll be there for the forums
