Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday applauded the nationwide protests against racial injustice while criticizing Democratic leaders for a “double standard” that has kept churches in some areas closed.
“I have no criticism for the millions of Americans who peacefully demonstrated in recent days. Their cause is beyond righteous,” said McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky. “It is the inconsistency from leaders that has been baffling.”
Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio drew McConnell’s frustration.
“It’s becoming clear to many Americans … that our national life during this pandemic has slid toward a double standard,” McConnell said. “For weeks state and local leaders put normal American life totally on ice and asked citizens to prioritize fighting the virus. For weeks, the mainstream media heaped scorn on any small citizen protest, outdoor gathering, or even the suggestion that other important values might require a reappraisal of certain restrictions.
“A month ago, small protest demonstrations were widely condemned as reckless and selfish. Now, massive rallies, that fill entire cities, are not just praised, but in fact are called especially brave, because of the exact same health risks that brought condemnation when the cause was different.”
McConnell said he…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
