Here are the three things he said that got the media’s attention…
– “There may be some people here today who do not have living within them the Holy Spirit”
– “But if you have been adopted in God’s family like I have, and like you have if you’re a Christian and if you’re saved, and the Holy Spirit lives within you just like the Holy Spirit lives within me, then you know what that makes? It makes you and me brothers. And it makes you and me brother and sister.”
–”‘Now I will have to say that, if we don’t have the same daddy, we’re not brothers and sisters. So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister, and I want to be your brother.”
Here are two other spiritual quotes Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley said this week
– “God has richly blessed me with a wonderful family and I am honored to have them here with me today.”
– “The challenges are great, but as Mordecai told Esther as she placed her life in jeopardy to save our Jewish brethren, how do we know that we have not been placed here today for a time such as this?”
Here is what his critics say in response…
“Outrageous. He is a governor, not a mullah”
President of Cranford American Atheists
“Alabama Governor Insults All Seven or So Non-Christian Alabamans”
New Work Magazine Headline
“He is not a civilian anymore; he is not a private person anymore. He is the governor of Alabama every day, 24-hours a day.”
Birmingham News writer
“The people of Alabama elected Mr. Bentley to lead the state, not to give him a platform from which to proselytize.”
