Today I give you two beautiful Christmas carols.
The first is a medieval carol, “The Wexford Carol” as performed by Yo Yo Ma and Alison Krauss. It is a haunting rendition that I find achingly beautiful, and seems to place me in an medieval cathedral as I listen to it.
The second carol is a modern piece, recorded by Becky Kelley just last year at Shock City Studios in St. Louis titled “Where is the Line to See Jesus?” It sets itself in the modern cathedral, a shopping mall, and asks seeks to remind us of the holiness of the season that is often lost in the “holiday” rush.
After the events of the last week, I refuse to be associated with the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition any longer. I find the actions they are currently taking in the MO2 race reprehensible. They are vilifying in public and private people who used to be their friends, for the betterment of a candidate, Ed Martin. Members of the Board of St. Louis Tea Party Coalition allege employees of Enterprise Leasing have committed crimes, with no evidence to back up their claims. Rather, they seem to cite as evidence, the proper reporting of donations to the FEC as evidence of wrongdoing. How “1984″ of them. They then use that information to smear, in the local and national press, conservative donors and other conservatives that refuse to line up behind their support of Ed Martin.
There are real battles that need our attention. The actions St. Louis Tea Party Coalition are taking only serve to weaken and divide conservatives when we most need to be banding together. I refuse to allow them to affect my ability to effectively organize conservatives any longer. They are not worthy of your support and they certainly no longer have mine.
