Sheri Few: Televangelist Or Political Candidate?

“THOU SHALT CONTRIBUTE …”

Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: We don’t care who wins the race to become S.C. Superintendent of Education.

Why not? The office is pointless. Academic policy for the state’s worst-in-the-nation government-run school system is set by the S.C. General Assembly – with budget and administrative authority delegated to local school boards.

The state superintendent, therefore, is useful only inasmuch as they engage the bully pulpit … and from what we can tell, none of the announced candidates for this office are committed to doing so on behalf of the long-overdue free market reforms South Carolina desperately needs to implement

So we’re politely covering this race’s entries, exits and “important” announcements … but doing our best to ignore it editorially.

“When reading my Bible this week, I came across a verse that gave me revelation about asking for your financial support,” Few wrote.

Wait … what?

For those of you not hip to Pharisee-speak, Few is saying that God told her to ask you for campaign donations … on Facebook.

“I know you work hard and if you give of the proceeds of your labor, we become partners in this battle for the minds of children,” Few continued. “Make no mistake, this is a battle between good and evil and we must protect the little ones with whom we are entrusted.”

Take a look …

few

Of course Few wants her disciples to cough up the cash by a specific date …

“I hope I can count on your financial support before March 31st, which is the financial disclosure deadline,” Few adds. “I need to show a strong cash position when these reports are publicized. Thank you and may God bless you as you give, and as we become partners in this struggle for the little ones!”

Sheesh …

Pander much?

Few’s entire campaign is based on a crusade against the federal government’s Common Core standards – which we also oppose. We also agree with Few that parochial schools should play a much broader role in South Carolina’s academic universe.

Having said that, we don’t believe the solution to poor standards in the government-run system (and a shameful lack of choice outside that system) is to be achieved by “better” government – we believe that solution is found in the marketplace.

We also don’t believe there is any place for religious pandering in political campaigns or government offices.

1 John 4:1
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

So DB Cooper is here to” judge” Few as a false prophet, and then interpret The Bible to damn those he hates, and exalt the ones he deems worthy…You’re about as slick as Ernest Angely…

That said: “Physician, Heal Thyself”….may be the more appropriate Scripture that you’d be wise to associate your judgement with…

Luke 9:60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon

Who is surprised? There’s plenty of religion pimps out there. Pat Robertson, Peter Popoff, Kent Hovind, various evangelistic faith healers, just about any of these megachurch pastors who live in million dollar mansions, and of course, a myriad of politicians who use the Bible to beat dopes over the head with in order to get their money. They rip people off by the millions.

It is no more shameless than Mark Sanford telling Clinton to resign over his infidelities but then not resigning himself, and then running for office again, “because God forgave him and told him to run.”

Funny how God always favors the rich, the powerful, and the well-connected, but for some reason everyone else just gets shafted year after year.

Man created God in his own image. I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.

She is perhaps one of the biggest losers in recent SC election history and the perfect candidate for you to support, as you predicted President Perry, Cain, Bachmann, Santorum, and Romney. Few is a train wreck and if you can’t see that, it’s officially time for you to step away from the computer and wait for mom to bring the meatloaf to the basement.

That said: I don’t necessarily support Few, you simple-minded Dumb@$$……I just don’t trust FITS’ assessment, or the opinions of idiots like you…you Voted for, and still Suck-Off, Obama…How stupid is that???

For those who champion “the marketplace” solution to educating future citizens, take a look at what is going on today in private schools.

That has been the story all along. The Repub right wants public money for private schooling so they can teach Creationism rather than science and mythology rather than history. That’s the bottom line to vouchers, privatization and opposition to Common Core.

Sherry is a politician. The Superintendent’s job should be held by an educator. Next time you are looking check out Meka Childs. From what I have heard from several meetings and reading her literature she look like the real deal. The best combination of knowledge and experience. I’m not involved in that race but just an observation.

announced her campaign had received the endorsement of both President
George H. W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush.

what a crock!!!!! March 26, 2014 at 9:15 am

if at the very least the state dept. of education cannot intervene in obviously corrupt school systems, the doors of this ineffectual depart MUST close. this agency’s budget props up political appointees for what. sc education system hasn’t improved in years.
what is it’s purpose??????????? using OUR TAX DOLLARS to put friends in high places. the only REAL candidate would be one that campaigned on closing a useless agency. (come on toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore)

Slow down everyone. She is not getting my vote; however, I suggest you not make judgements on “men of God”(so to speak). I agree with you about faith healers; however, making a general accusations is not a good idea either. Maybe it would be a good idea if you watch Charles Stanley or David Jeremiah, Billy Graham’s son, and not to forget John Hagee. JH comes on strong, but preaches the TRUTH.
