Casey Cagle forgets the cardinal rule of politics
Dick Yarbrough
There is the story about the preacher who was hard at work saving souls at a tent revival. One person said he had coveted his neighbor’s wife and was remorseful. “Hallelujah, my child, you are forgiven!” the preacher cried. Another confessed he had once stolen a loaf of bread from the local grocer. “Hallelujah,” said the preacher, “You are forgiven!” On and on it went with confessions and forgiveness until one man suddenly jumps up and yells, “I kissed a goat.” There was a complete silence in the audience. The preacher looked at him and said quietly, “Son, I don’t think I would have told that.”
