I’d been planning my first show for BTM TV when an errand called me past this church sign.
When I first noticed the sign yesterday, I thought that it was a call for prayer for our troops. I immediately thought of Mark Twain’s War Prayer and the idea of unintended outcomes. I 86’d what I had and planned something new around the theme. After I pulled some stories, I went to dinner with some new buddies where a point that seemed to bring it all together was made: While America is arguing over abortion, class, gender and ethnicity, those who are supposed to be representing us in government are robbing us blind of our wealth and liberty.
I went back today for a picture of the sign and saw that crosses were set up to represent aborted fetuses. I intend to present the show as planned because in my mind, this picture underscores it all. Please join me at 8:00 tonight over BTM TV (Channel 1) where I’ll be presenting example after example of good intentions in public policy going horribly wrong.
