Politicians and the Power of their Words
Gov. Larry Hogan recently spoke words of failure over the political campaigns of every pro-life, pro-family and pro-freedom GOP candidate in our state. As quoted in an article published shortly after the gubernatorial primary results were tallied, Hogan said: “We lost at least the chance for a Republican governor in Maryland. It’s going to go back to a Democratic monopoly.” Gov. Hogan has identified himself as a man of faith, so it may be that he does not fully understand the power of his words — especially as the currently highest elected servant in Maryland.
We know, however, that spoken words are terms of either death or life, of defeat or victory. As believers, we also know that, left unchecked, persons in positions of power may exercise illegitimate authority through their words. Through God’s grace, the Church in Maryland has power and authority over every man-made position of power and every word spoken. We must exercise our authority now, because the progressive Democrat party of Maryland has legislation awaiting the lawmakers’ return to Annapolis that is more demonic and more vile than what their deceptive campaign ads and controlled candidate forums allow the average voter to know.
For example, the Trans Health Equity Act (HB746) will mandate taxpayer funding for gender reassignment treatment, to include minors and illegal aliens, and will criminalize anyone who resists for religious or other reasons. Additionally, several economy-destroying, small-business-killing Green New Deal acts modeling President Biden’s and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s deal with globalists will be added to Maryland’s already radical march toward criminalizing most industry and business. Also: Do you remember the Pregnant Person’s Freedom Act of 2022, which codifies the “right” to murder babies during the perinatal stages (28 days after birth) and criminalizes anyone who reports the murder? The bill wasn’t defeated; it was tabled by its Democrat sponsors, awaiting their return to “serve” the people of Maryland in January 2023. Add to this the moves already taken by the Maryland State Department of Education to label pedophilia and pornography curriculum-compulsory in Pre-K–12, if we allow Gov. Hogan’s words to be, God have mercy on us all.
Finally, please pray for Hogan and for those like him to humble themselves, repent and seek God in all their ways. They are each in their valley of decision, and their souls are being weighed in the balance.
