Neither Innocent Nor Wise

Crossroads, a pro-life organization, recently issued a press release comparing Florida governor Jeb Bush to Pontius Pilate because he has not defied the law and the courts in order to rescue Terri Schiavo. Jesus told his disciples, “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves” (Matt. 10:16). Unfortunately, press releases like this fail on both counts.
