Jesus wasn’t a quitter, Steveo

Saw this coming a mile away, but I thought he would last a least a couple of weeks;

SIOUX FALLS, SD – A candidate for Congress in South Dakota is dropping out of that race to focus on a state Legislature run instead.

Steve Hickey had planned to seek the Republican nomination to run for South Dakota’s lone U.S. House seat. The Sioux Falls pastor says he now plans to pursue a state House seat in District 9.

I saw a man do what he believes is the right thing today.
Stand up for what he believes, no matter the personal cost to him.

As a member of the Republican Party, rather than a lone wolf, he stepped down so that people would better be able to focus on one strong candidate.

Way to go Steve,
I am glad to see that you are man enough to step up and take one on the chin from the likes of those with lesser moral values.

God Bless you and your family.

And as far as Jesus not being a quitter, Scott you are exactly right. I find it strongly shortsighted that you would compare Steve, or any other human for that matter, to Jesus. I do suspect however, that at least in your own mind, you elevate yourself to that stature. I say this according to the amount of time I see you spending in the judgment seat.

“I say this according to the amount of time I see you spending in the judgment seat.”

What color is the kettle?

“I say this according to the amount of time I see you spending in the judgment seat.”

If that is the criteria to compare someone to Jesus, then Steve must believe he is the son of God himself. His entire blog consists of judging others… I have no reason to suspect he would legislate in any other fashion.

Shame all those “Hickey for Congress” posters and signs are headed straight for the recycle bin after only a week. I believe our elected leaders need a little more planning and foresight to prevent flip-flopping so quickly.

[…] Changes His Mind on Race Against Herseth Sandlin." The South DaCola headline is "Jesus wasn't a quitter, Steveo".  All things considered, reactions were mainly generous and no rocks were in the mud […]

Kinda like those transit brochures in Rapid City?
