Doug Wilson in his latest post states:
"And we don't tell Paul Kimmell how to vote -- unless the vote were an
attempt to frame iniquity with a law, as the psalmist says ... we would
require any member of our fellowship who had a vote to vote no. And we would
discipline him if he did not vote no ... this is because there is a
separation of church and state (and ought to be), but there is no separation
of morality and state"
What Doug Wilson omits is his teaching that there is NO NEUTRALITY on any
decision i.e., all decisions have moral import and are therefore subject to
Doug Wilson's moral oversight and control.
This omitted fact, taken in context, indicates that Paul Kimmell is subject
to Doug Wilson oversight and control over any and almost every issue of
moral import. This includes many more issues than Doug Wilson inventoried
in his latest weblog message.
Is it moral for the County to place restraints on development through
specific zoning regulations. Are eminent domain and condemnation proceedings
an immoral taking of private property e.g., for County Road ROW (property
rights). Is raising sales or property taxes an unbiblical method of
taxation amounting to theft. Is the allocation of tax dollars for economic
development purposes an immoral redistribution of wealth for immoral
purposes. Should the Commissioner restrict funding to the Sheriffs's Office
when in Kimmel's view he is enforcing unbiblical laws. Is it an unethical
redistribution of wealth for tax dollars to fund the latah county
Since, In Doug Wilson's view, morality encompasses all aspects of public
life does Paul Kimmel have any freedom to make any decision NOT subject to
Paul, would you please answer the question as to what types of government
activities you conduct which don't have a moral component subject to Wilson
discipline and oversight?
