REP. TOM DELAY UNDER FIRE
Christian Statesman Targeted
- The righteous is delivered from trouble, and it comes to the wicked instead. The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous will be delivered (Pr 11:8).
A long time Common Cause liberal activist is leading a vicious attack against House Majority Leader, Tom DeLay (R-TX), claiming DeLay is guilty of ethics violations. DeLay is under fire in Texas, where he could be indicted for campaign finance abuses.
- DeLay, elected to the Texas House in 1979, came to Congress in 1985. Elected Majority Whip in 1995 and Majority Leader in the 108th Congress, DeLay is a lightning rod for liberal hate.
- Most American Christians are unaware of DeLays leading role in shaping the Congressional agenda, in helping Republicans get elected, in shepherding Godly legislation and in stopping ungodly legislation from passing the House of Representatives.
- DeLay is hated by liberals because his hugely successfully fundraising campaigns have helped Christian and conservative candidates and causes. Since he employs creative fundraising tools and has relationships with numerous charitable groups, DeLay has faced ceaseless scrutiny from Common Cause, People for the American Way and others.
- If DeLay is indicted on Texas charges that a PAC he created improperly used corporate money to help Republicans win control of the Texas Legislature in 2002, DeLay would be required to step down from his Congressional post until he is cleared.
DeLay is a bold dedicated Believer in Jesus Christ. No one in Washington could replace him were he absent even temporarily. His recently announced intention to shape a House agenda, boldly more conservative than that planned by the White House, has made him a target of the left, as well as by some moderates and conservatives. We believe this is an election year effort to malign perhaps Washingtons most powerful and effective pro-life, pro-family leader.
This battle is a must win for dedicated, praying Christians.
Let Us Prevail in Prayer for Tom DeLay:
- Father, we call upon You to VINDICATE Your servant & to DELIVER him from those who hate him. EXPOSE every lie. Cause TRUTH to PREVAIL.
- GIVE our brother WISDOM. PROTECT him from the deadly poison of his enemies. What the enemy intends for evil, turn to good. In Jesus Name, Amen (Ps 35:24-36; 57:3-4; 64:all; Pr 18:17; Rom 8:28).
