Wish these groups would put the same amount of energy and time dealing with some real problems facing this community. They lose their minds over some waitresses showing their belly buttons.(The whole "Double-D Ranch" affair) But, they seemingly ignore the rampant corruption among local politicians they re-elect term after term.

I agree Sparky. These people remind me a lot of of the Pharisees. They think they are righteous because they don't drink. Yet, they look down their noses at their neighbors and turn a blind eye to corruption and injustice in their community. Not only do they turn a blind eye but they vote for the corrupt morons who tell them what they want to hear. I've never seen a bunch of more self righteous hypocrites any where else. They are the type of people Jesus was talking about who point out the splinter in someone elses eye while they have a beam in their own eye.

It would be nice to see some of these self righteous Christians put this kind of energy into actually helping those in the community who need help. Instead, they look down their noses at those who aren't like them. These self righteous Christians embrace dishonest politicians and, stay in their own neighborhoods and only socialize with their kind. I seem to recall that Jesus took the gospel to the outcasts and the despised. I think most of these "Christians" have no clue about what Jesus was really trying to show people.

It's interesting that Tyler and Smith County have been "dry," but there are just as many drunks as everywhere else. It's been easier to get cocaine here than alcohol, but nobody forms some group to do something about the illegal drugs that are destroying neighborhoods.

A person can't throw a stick here without hitting some kind of church, but this is the casual sex and illicit drug capital of the world.

And they can't stomach the idea that law-abiding, tax-paying, hard-working Christians might want to buy some beer or wine at the grocery store.

I wonder how many members of this group can be found after Church on Sunday at one of the many restaurants in Tyler that sells alcohol. It seems to me that if these people think alcohol is such a bad thing they wouldn't support restaurants that sell it. But, it could be that its easy to jump on a bandwagon like this. But, if it means sacrificing something, even something as trivial as eating at your favorite restaurants, the issue just doesn't seem as important.
