Unhinged anti-gay bigot Scott Lively is running for governor of Massachusetts as an independent, where he is expected to win literally tens of votes for the office. But he is not afraid because his campaign manager is the holy spirit itself, whose previous work was limited to making people babble in tongues and knocking up young women in ancient Palestine.
As you know, I am not running a typical election campaign. My Campaign Manager is the Holy Spirit, and He has His own plan and purposes for my run for Governor of Massachusetts.
That would be the same holy spirit, presumably, that told Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry to run for president in 2012.
First, He has told me NOT to try to make things happen in my own will and strength, but wait on Him to move others to take action on my behalf. That was the word I received while on my annual personal retreat on the Appalachian Trail this May. My personal role is limited to accepting speaking and debate invitations and media interviews, and to writing/designing literature and other advertising.
Now we’re in the active campaign season, heading toward the November election. Again, every time I personally try to make something happen, it fails.
I’ve finally learned my lesson, I think. I am receiving many speaking and debate invitations and doing lots of media interviews, which is great, but I am also being deliberately excluded from numerous other candidate forums and debates. In my flesh I would like to contest these unfair exclusions, however, I am trusting the Lord and restraining myself.
I want God to get the glory for any good thing that comes from my effort.
So when you lose, you’ll be putting all the blame on the holy spirit, right?
