…and more has been spent on the two Georgia U.S. Senate seats than is received for the SBC Cooperative Program (national allocation) and both major mission offerings combined.
What I have to show for it is a stack of about 70 pieces for slick mail, all but a couple from Republican and Republican friendly PACS like the NRA, Realtors, Chamber, etc. etc. This stack goes to…
…my wood stove in the basement. William the Plodder will get some BTUs out of American white-hot politics, if nothing else. Call me a recycler and give me credit for further warming the earth.
About 3 million voters have already voted. I early voted a couple of weeks ago…cast two votes for divided government. Pollsters are staying away from this unique race but some are observing that early voting is up in Democratic strongholds. We will see if there are enough Trump rednecks in South Georgia to counter all that.
Voting is heavily divided along racial lines. The problems we have in the SBC these days have a political component.
My church is predominantly white but with significant African-American and ethnic group segments. The pastor say little about politics.
Since I’m retired, I don’t answer phone calls unless I see one of my contacts but this week I’m on the callback list for the Covid vaccine and I answer all calls. I received two last evening from the Democrat boiler room. Same volunteer, had an accent, who called me “John.” I’m a nice guy. Didn’t get upset. Said I’d already voted. Bye.
Let’s be honest. If God has a sense of humor, He will see that the two Democratic candidates win and then see if there is any regret by Trump supporters over some of the appalling nonsense the President has recently inflicted on citizens of this state.
But, we will see what happens.
I can hear a sigh of relief from my battered mailbox already.
Maybe we should get back to “love one another” and stop thinking we are expert political pundits or epidemiologists.
Prediction here: The race will be close and may not be called for a few days but the two GOP candidates will ride the wave of rural, senior, white and Hispanic voters to a narrow victory.
This is a unique situation. One state, two senate seats, runoff election for control of the Senate and, thus, to control of the Executive and both houses of congress. But if the Dems win both, I’m guessing we are in for some surprises.
