Anyone with reason knows that Scooter Libby is the fall guy in this whole Valarie Plame scandal. And, we know where the buck stops. True, there is nothing we can do if President Bush and Vice President Cheney decide to shift the blame. Yet, we know that they will be held accountable by the Lord. For the sake of their souls, the President should confront his Vice President and direct him to hold himself accountable.
If indeed we are Christian, we must strive to lead by example. Yes, we will fall and do wrong things. Yet, we must confess our sins and change our ways. Mr. President, Mr. Vice President, the Lord has mercy enough for you. Even if the people are upset when you reveal the truth, God will be pleased. In the Grand Scheme, that’s all that should matter.
Should Scooter Libby be pardoned? That depends. Does he realize that he was wrong? Is the sentence “too excessive?” That depends. Only God knows how long it will take him to repent. The important thing is that he repent. If Libby is released too early, he may miss his chance to repent and thus miss his blessing. I am more concerned that we all have a chance to enjoy our lives in eternity than enjoyment in this temporal life.
I’m keeping my eyes open. May the Lord keep the city, that my watching be not in vain.
