"It's Not About Anything But Qualifications"
               The U.S. Presidency Is Not A Prize To Be Won 

It 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 president.

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.
