"It's Not About Anything But
U.S. Presidency Is Not A Prize To Be
is all over the web that Sarah Palin has come out and said
it is time for a woman president. Though, I highly doubt that
she meant this as anything more than a way to bring
attention to herself, which I don't begrudge her, I totally disagree
with her statement.
It is not about a person's
sex, anymore than it is about a person's skin color. And saying we
need a woman president, is just as sexist as saying we need a man
We saw how wrong it was for people to say it was
time to have a black president, while calling anyone a racist who
felt the white ones have done us just fine. It's not about the color
of a person's skin, nor is it about what gender a person is. It
is about qualifications.
The book of Romans in the bible
shows us that a true leader, who is ordained by God, is going to be
a person who loves the Lord, a true born again believer in Jesus
Christ. A true leader is going to be a terror to evil and is going
to desire to do things God's way. It is about being a true
statesman/woman who loves the Lord and who loves this country and
who is otherwise qualified for the job. It is not anyone's turn to
be president. It's not a prize to be won.
