From The "Elections Matter" Department

Today, in its ruling on the NYSRPA v Bruen case, the United States Supreme Court struck down a New York state law that sought to abridge a citizen's right to carry a handgun outside his/her home for self-defense.  The vote was 6-3, with Clarence Thomas writing the majority opinion.

In another excellent ruling, the Supreme Court voted 8-1 (Sotomeyer dissenting) ruled that Republican lawmakers do have authority to intervene for the enforcement of voter id laws in North Carolina.  This brings much-needed accountability to the conduct of elections.

All this goes to show that elections have consequences and that we as Christians have a duty to vote, even if none of the candidates is as pure as the driven snow.  These rulings would not have happened if Trump was defeated in 2016.  I daresay that much of today's mess would not have happened had the election not been stolen from Trump in 2020.
