Roland Burris was appointed by the scandal plagued Governor Rod Blagojevich. This has created an uproar within the state, the democratic party, nationally, even in my home.
It's just a weird situation. Rod is innocent until proven guilty but to allow him to pick is risky. What if he is found guilty? Do we revolt Burris?
This is the scenario I have played in my head. You have Lucifer in heaven and corruption is found in him and he is going to be removed from his seat. Before he leaves, he appoints another demon because that was his job.
Now I'm not calling the governor Lucifer or Satan; and I'm not calling Roland Burris a demon. I actually like both of these guys. However; I am saying the situation is similar to the one found in Revelation 12 (Bible class is coming in handy here).
Would God let Satan make that pick? Different government; different beings, I know. In this current case, because the way the government is ran; Governor Rod Blagojevich still has this power no matter how corrupt he's been and we have to go along with it; business as usual.
At worse, in my opinion, of the candidates heard on the FBI spy taps; they should not be an option; but after that if the Governor selects a well qualified man or woman; I think it should fly. Until he is proven guilty he is signing other bills right? Tell me what you think?
