Kopp Disclosure
(John 3:19-21)



If you're from Chicago, I know you'll be voting a lot on Tuesday; even if you're dead.

But for the rest of yu'uns, vote on Tuesday!

You will be glad you did!

America will be stronger because you're involved!

@#$% has hosted several special editions of Kopp Disclosure over the past month on, uh, so voters can be informed as well as involved.

Yeah, I know too many jackasses and pachyderms - euphemisms as well as appropriate symbols for Democrats and Republicans - will vote for their favorite party's nominees even if they're kin to Satan; but has been doing its part to pry open some minds to consider...

Anyway, aside from checking out current and past shows in the archives, click on, then click on the tab for Kopp Disclosure, and then listen to some really exciting candidates try to get your vote.


Parenthetically, this Tuesday's regularly scheduled show live at 5 on will feature women married to ecclesiastically employed men.

I wouldn't miss it.

Of course, I won't.

I'm the host.


BTW, I think Christians, especially in America who have the privilege of direct participation in governance by exercising their right to vote, have a responsibility to vote for women/men who they think will honor God the best after the model of Jesus in the Bible.

It's a James 4:17 thing.

God knows I know I've/we've elected the wrong dudes/dudettes on occasion; but we get a chance to do better whenever those polls re-open.


Getting back to Tuesday and, all of the candidates who appeared on the show had a good time as well as the opportunity to convince folks why they should be elected.

We had two guys who wouldn't come on.

One is an incumbent who had nothing to gain but could have lost votes by sitting with an opponent whose charisma dwarfs his.

One said he wasn't invited to a debate; but, uh, that's disputed by the station's founder and manager along with another candidate who said they invited him to come at least seven times.

Those two guys remind me of Joy and Whoppi walking away from a chance to engage somebody whose opinions/views/weltanschauung is different from theirs.

I think that's a growing problem in America and so many churches.

Instead of talking through and even praying through our differences, which is a heralded virture of America and especially the church, people are increasingly inclined to turn their backs and run away from anyone who disagrees with 'em.

How are we supposed to reconcile or just co-exist if we won't even try to...?

That's why I will never vote for those two guys who wouldn't come on the show.

That's why I'm not joining Joy or Whoppi's fan clubs.

That's why I've remained in my denomination rather than turning my back on it and running away like a crybaby who...


It all goes back to voting.

We have a chance to change things right now even before the parousia.

We can vote in America.

We can vote in the church.


Uh, we can vote in most churches.

But you know what I mean.

I'm reminded of what Bonhoeffer said about Luther.

He said Luther had to leave the monastery and go out into the world to be faithful.

Like on Tuesday.


Blessings and Love!
