Did you ever think you’d live to see a day when Louisiana’s government would seriously consider the legalization of recreational marijuana, the legalization of prostitution, and the expansion of virtual 24/7/365 gambling?
Well, today is that day.
Sorry for the heavy report, but these are actually all happening today.
Law is designed to be a teacher, advocating for what is good, restraining that which is evil, and defining vice for what it is: dark, pervasive, and costly!
Today, the legislature, some of whom would like to redefine that reality, will vote on these vices, and will make decisions for your family and the future of our state. Some legislators will advocate for these debased, dark temptations we once called “vices,” as just another form of “economic development.”
Warning: I would petition you not to go there!
If you’re a legislator and you’re reading this message, I hope you understand the importance of being morally correct on the issues. One day, you’ll stand before your Creator and give account for how you stewarded His authority on the earth. You may well be asked on that day if you “caused one of these little ones to stumble” (Matthew 18:6). “More jobs and revenue” are not sufficient trade-offs to justify the introduction of more vices into our already-hurting state.
Government must do what it can, NOW, to protect the vulnerable – and not allow others to exploit them in the name of “consent and individual liberty.” Once Louisiana says “I do” to vices in public policy, there will be no re-do. There will only be consequences.
If you’re a Louisiana voter and you’re reading this message, I hope you’ll call your State Representative and State Senator and let them know that you want them to OPPOSE the legalization of marijuana, saying NO to legalized prostitution, and HALT the rapid expansion of 24/7/365 gambling.
