I went to the 34th annual Bethlehem Fish Fry today, an event that helps the ministry of the church. One of the members had shared how good the food was, the fellowship, the events for the kids. I was going because of her personal invitation.
Imagine my surprise when I got there to see dozens and dozens of political signs. Politicians were everywhere! Smiling. Passing out tracts. Going out of the way to greet the fish fry visitors. Supposedly the politicians were to be on the far side of the road. Most were, except for the sheriff's car parked halfway in the road on the church property.
Sheriff Derrell Cagle said its the best way to meet the voters. Incumbent County Trustee Joey Davis said, "if you are running for a county office, there's not just one community event. You have to go to all of them.
Frankly, it made me sick. One cannot even go eat at a church fish fry without having to put up with these back slappin, smiling, jackasses! I admit I remember the names of all the signs and the participants. I promise not to vote for any of these vultures!It is a sad state of affairs when one can't tell the difference between a circus and a religous group. One thing is for sure, I could tell who the clowns were.
