Maine's Paul LePage and Luke Chapter 16:1

Paul LePage is running for governor of Maine as a Republican. I like Republicans but cannot imagine the Mayor of Waterville LePage as the governor of our beautiful state.

Obviously he is grumpy and not forthcoming unless supporters are cheering him on.

More urgently, he doesn't measure up to Biblical standards where honesty is measured.

Nonetheless, LePage is ahead in the polls. How can this be? His right wing extremism is beyond ideology. He's not truthful.

His recent statements to the press are challenged by the Bible in Luke's Gospels 16:1- 10-12. Hey, I'm no Bible quoter, but this time I must communicate in the same speech the LePage supporters may understand.

Luke 16:1:10-12 "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. 11- So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? 12-And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else's property, who will give you property of your own?"

Mr. LePage made grumpy headlines with statements he attributed to media bias. Mayor LePage says he is being singled out because he is a Franco-American. Yet, he has yet to produce one single piece of evidence to substantiate this claim. When asked if his name was ever on a piece of property his wife used as a homestead tax exemption in Waterville, he said "no” - moreover, he said "never was". Then we found out he "forgot" his name was on the title, after all.

Rather than explain himself, he looses his temper. Today, the Portland Press Herald's Bill Nemitz called on LePage to stop telling lies:

In fact, Mr. LePage personally told me he is backed by the Tea Party; but when asked by reporters if this was the case, he said he didn't know much about the Tea Party. He lied because he certainly predicted to me he was going to win the Republican primary election because the Tea Party was backing him - and that was back in February 2010.

Yet Mr. LePage told reporters: "Well, I don't know why you're associating me with the tea party."

And so on.

In this highly stressed out economy, how is it people are willing to jump on the LePage bandwagon for governor of Maine? Prove to me this man cam be trusted.

Read Luke's common sense story in verses 16:1.

Mr. LePage should read Luke's Gospel before supporting the teaching of Creationism in public schools.

A governor's oath office says "So Help Me God".

Mr. LePage, are you telling Maine people the truth, so help you God?
