And what could be a better way to channel youthful energy than having them join a church group scavenger hunt:
The pastor and youth minister of an Owens Cross Roads church formally apologized for a youth scavenger hunt that targeted Kerry-Edwards signs, among other items. The signs were burned in the church parking lot.
Doug Dermody, chairman of the Madison County Democratic Executive Committee, said Monday that the senior pastor, the Rev. Jeff Ponder-Twardy, and youth minister B.J. Storey of Owens Crossroads United Methodist Church apologized to their congregation Sunday and submitted a written apology to the county's Democratic headquarters.
Ponder-Twardy personally delivered the regrets Monday, Dermody said Monday afternoon.
Man of God Ponder-Twardy acted in the spirit of Our Leader's bold, resolute actions: taking personal responsibility means waiting until getting caught:
Ponder-Twardy also said in the letter to the district that the local Democratic Party called the church last week wanting the church to take action for the stolen signs.
The county chairman of the Losing Party observed that:
...this year's election seems to have stirred up more emotions than usual.
"This campaign seems to be more nasty," he said. "The one thing we all have to remember is that on Nov. 3, regardless of who wins, we're all Americans and we have to come together."
Our Leader is pictured with his new symbol of national healing: The Trinitarian Flag.
