Daniel Whyte III Says That It Is Very Sad How Many Pastors of Today Do Exactly What Jesus Christ Said the Pharisees Did: THEY STRAIN AT A GNAT AND SWALLOW A CAMEL. Now Isn’t This Interesting: A Group of Pastors Rebuke Governor on Super Bowl Week for Expansion of Sports Gambling. Thousands of Pastors Have Remained Silent Against the Abomination of Homosexuality and So-called TRANSGENDERISM to the Point of Making America the Largest Sodom and Gomorrah in the History of the World. God Is Dismantling and Destroying the Greatest Country in History Outside of Israel Piece by Piece, While Women Who Are Risking Everything, Such as J.K. Rowling and Even Adele of All People, Are Standing Against This Demonic Woke Foolishness of People Thinking That They Can Change Themselves From a Man to a Woman or a Woman to a Man. When It Is All Said and Done, the Cause of the Destruction of America Will Be Blamed on the Tragic Ability of Many Pastors to STRAIN AT A GNAT AND SWALLOW A CAMEL AND BE A JUDAS AND A DEMAS AGAINST JESUS CHRIST. Pastors, Your Silence is Still Deafening.

NORTH CENTRAL OHIO — As Ohioans are counting on the Cincinnati Bengals to win Super Bowl LVI, the Ohio Governor and Legislature are counting on Ohioans to lose. Recently Governor Mike DeWine signed a bill into law legalizing sports betting in order to replenish state coffers with additional tax revenue. Ohio clergy at odds with DeWine believe state-sanctioned sports betting in the long run will be a bad bet for Ohio and will set up a banana republic at the expense of gambling addicts.

Clergy representing ninety-one congregations throughout the Buckeye Bible Belt wrote an open letter critical of Governor Mike DeWine (R) after he signed House Bill 29 into law legalizing sports gambling. The leading clergymen said the decision was “irresponsible and showed a glaring lack of leadership.”

House Bill 29 will allow predatory sports betting on collegiate and professional sports. It will also legalize sports betting at brick-and-mortar casinos, stadiums, bars, and restaurants and allow betting via internet, mobile devices, and kiosks. The Ohio Casino Control Commission will have regulatory oversight.

The pastors say government will be robbing Peter to pay Paul with enticing state-run gambling interests taking money from families.

The letter stated, “As the state government under your (DeWine’s) leadership continues to employ new methods of consumer fraud to exploit Ohio’s poor, it bears worth repeating that gambling does not create new wealth, gambling only makes wealth change hands. This past year Ohioans lost over $2.11 billion from casinos, racinos and bingo halls. We are told by the Bible “not to rob the poor because he is poor, nor oppress the afflicted at the gate; for the LORD will plead their cause and plunder the soul of those who plunder them.”

“With additional government promotion of gambling, Ohioans will be conned into thinking they can win money on games designed to get them fleeced,” says Pastor Russell Stanford, one of the clergy letter co-signors.

According to a 2016-2017 survey, .9% of all adult Ohioans have a compulsive problem- gambling addiction, equating to 76,379 individuals statewide. Former Ohio Buckeye star quarterback Art Schlichter falls into this category, with debts, con schemes, and fake checks connected to his gambling losses. His addiction has kept the divorced Schlichter in and out of prison since 1995. “The Bible clearly says, ‘He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house, but he who hates bribes will live,” says Stanford.

The clergy also believe state-sanctioned sports gambling will also harm the integrity of sports institutions it wagers on and will exacerbate the problem of cheating thru game-fixing and point-shaving.
