Brownback Inaugural: "Immorality is the Root of Kansas Problems"

Link: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/01/12/1357265/--KS-Brownback-Inaugural-Address-Immorality-is-the-Root-of-KS-Problems

Governor Sam Brownback took to Topeka today to discuss the future of the state of Kansas. His vision for the future and what is holding Kansas back. It isn't tax policy. It isn't the mountain of debt that Kansas faces - no, it is a moral crisis.

"The truth is we have tried something else in our country for too long. We have focused on personal satisfaction and chance, not obligation and sacrifice. That is not the way “to the stars.”

At its core the renewal of America, comes down to the family. No government should ever be big enough to substitute for the family. While many of our problems are economic and we will be second to none in addressing them, the reality is the solutions are principally cultural and moral. While it isn’t always easy to talk about, we should be talking about our culture and its renewal. We should be talking about things like character and courage. Faith and freedom. Sacrifice of self. Morals. Obligations and Responsibilities. Not as dictated by government, but as emitting from our hearts alive with a loving God.....Ours is a particularly difficult time because our biggest challenges are internal. We must renew the American culture. We must renew the American family. They both need the intangible traits our Founders put in the Seal of our state. The heart of a pioneer. The love of a healthy family. The courage of a warrior. The work ethic of a farmer and the Soul of an everyday Saint."

4. Lots of dog whistles to Christian Dominionists..."renewal," "religious liberty," etc.

 

Check out who Brownback really is by googling New Apostolic Reformation theology

3. Brownback is a card-carrying member of "THE FAMILY"/"THE FELLOWSHIP," a secret hard right religious

 

Cult based out of DC and VA. They've put on the Presidents Prayer Breakfast every February in DC since 1952, and they own "Frathouse for Jesus," a church that offers lodging for Senators (D) and (R) in DC. THE FAMILIY's goal is to "transform" democracies to hard rightwing theocracies, where pastors have veto rights over every facet of your personal and public life.

Here is the expose' from a former member:
