NO OLD TESTAMENT?
S.C. Senator Thomas Corbin said this week he believes stopping criminal domestic violence in the Palmetto State requires divine intervention.
“We need more Jesus in the world,” Corbin said, according to television station WIS TV 10 (NBC – Columbia, S.C.).
We’re not going to argue that … there’s clearly room for a lot more “judge not lest ye be judged” and “love thy neighbor as thyself” wisdom in our world. There’s also room for the sort of righteous anger against the status quo demonstrated by Jesus when he threw the moneychangers out of the Temple (Matthew 21:12).
Here’s the thing, though … when it comes to the root issue of men killing women in South Carolina (which is what this debate is all about), there’s room for some more Old Testament wisdom too.
Unfortunately … the Palmetto State is sorely lacking in that category, as our exclusive report yesterday on the case of confessed murdered Nickolas Jermaine Miller indicated.
What have we got enough of?
