Monday Melange

Letter to the American Church from Eric Metaxas and Dutch Sheets. 


The Iditarod Sled Dog Race is inexplicably committing seppuku. Who needs PETA when you have unsubstantiated #MeToo? First, the race cancelled Eddie Burke Jr. over an allegation, then reinstated him after the State dropped the charge, all within a matter of days. Then the race cancelled Brett Sass over never-filed allegations, ones that Sass vehemently denies.

Craig Medred reports on the Iditarod train wreck at his blog. Recommended reading.

"One side now argues the Iditarod should consider all mushers innocent until proven guilty in a court of law while the other side argues that this is too high a standard with some contending the whole premise of innocent until proven guilty should go away."

Innocent until proven guilty needs to stand.

Low to mid 80s here today and tomorrow.
You all be safe, stay warm and God bless, Reverend.

Wow... Sounds awfully 'specific' against individuals... Trying to get rid of the competition?

Rev. Paul said...

I agree, Linda, and our laws are (or were) written that way for a reason.

NFO, it's been awhile since Sass won the race, but who knows? You might be right.

What an utter mess.

You are right, Reverend. This will kill any interest in the Iditarod.
