Get yourself a copy of this weeks Camden Shopper.

It is the last one that will hit mailboxes before the polls pen.

He drops all pretense of being more qualified in secular terms that his opponent, an actual attorney and judge.

No, it seems that in the gospel according to St. Martin, the real legislative intent of allowing non-attorney to run in small counties was to ensure that the probate court remained a common man's court with a judge with no more than common sense and no formal legal training.

Silly me, I always figured it was because way back when, some smaller cities, far removed from big cities, might have had no lawyers in the county or
insufficient population to pay a salary that would attract an attorney. Bu no, it was so common folks in small, backward counties could be spared someone on the bench who was actually professionally trained for the job.

His final ad goes on to list being a radio preacher on the local Christian radio station and being a self-anointed "chaplain" of some sort as further reason to vote for him over his opponent.

Now, for all I know, Beau Sweatt may be a deacon -or, hell, even a bishop in the church of his choice, if any. I don't know and don't care.

More importantly, so far as I know, he has not once played the religious card in this race for a secular judgeship.

I don't know about you, but when I vote for a judge, or any public official, I'm looking to hear the results by way of the media, not white smoke rising from the courthouse chimney.

You show your ignorance. There is far more corruption in the courthouse than in a church. "Educated" crooked judges and lawyers do far more damage to society than "uneducated" medicine men or preachers.

When someone tells me he/she is a Christian, I reflexively grab my right hip pocket to ensure its contents.

"Beau" is my man but Turner didn't say a thing that offended me. I would rather have Turner volunteering his time to some Christian youth function than having old Tax and Spend Moreno hunched over his keyboard pounding away with his loaded pistol at arms length. CJ is one loud doggy fart away from catching one right between the eyes.

Really? What do you grab when you get a paycheck and see what the Feds and State have taken?

Someone want to clue this parochial Camden hick in on the white smoke reference.

Yeah..yeah, we got the College of Cardinal reference. We also get that you hate Turner and will write anything in an attempt to discredit him, be it fact or fiction. If he were a religious zealot as you claim, he would have gone after you with the same zeal you have attacked him by him

With all you loath in your world, have you ever thought it might be you that is out of step...and not the rest of the world? No, of course not.....

If I had to run for office and choose either the Christian ticket or the agnostic ticket I would choose christian.

You, an un-American, Christian bigot who wipes his holy ass on the Constitution? I'm shocked.

"The Christian ticket?" "The agnostic ticket?"

Would that be like the Muslim Brotherhood ticket or perhaps the Bathist ticket?

Where do you religious bigots hold your conventions, Churchlady?

A Christian establishes that fact by his actions/deeds not by how he describes himself.

You see I see something that you do not. I would vote Buddhist before agnostic. It is also kind of like voting Democrat vs Republican.

Looking at your Judge it, I would say that you probably will get more approval from this post. And, I agree with you on your latest comment.

Never really been impressed with cliches.
Cliches are a group of words used to give credibility to something that is not.

Where ever their is money (in this case, a good salary) failing lawyers and preachers will show up!
Except most real preachers are making over $100,000 these days with the 10% tithe tax-that is part of the old testament and no longer applicable but the preachers wont let go of it because they love money.

Really? You would be hard put to convince me that Sweatt is going hungry.
