I haven’t said anything about John Rowland this week because I felt like I already said it all here.
Rowland leaving WTIC under a cloud of scandal does not harm conservatism (he was never much of a conservative) but it does harm the good done by his very-public conversion. I don’t mean his conversion from Catholic to Protestant (he was never much of a Catholic either) but from worldly politician to a living faith in Jesus Christ. Rowland’s weaknesses are not mine, but I have others. We all do. I am praying for greater holiness for him, for me, for all of us…and that those of us who represent the faith in a public way do no harm to the cause of Christ.
