Amazing how some Christians see things in life. It's just fine to lie, cheat, and steal. The sin must be in getting caught.

This trial is showing the underbelly of Republican lawmakers in Arkansas. I'm sure some Republicans in NWA are overlooking these issues because "Ecclesia was a fine Christian school and those lawmakers were just doing the work of the Lord." God, Guns, and Gays, the three litmus tests of many Republicans.

10 current or former legislators directed state grants to Ecclesia College from 2013 through March 2015 totaling $617,500, according to records obtained by the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

For the sake of transparency, who are or were the 10 current or former legislators involved with this? Since this was available through FOIA, put it out there for us all to see... I suspect that all were aware of this or even profited. Maybe we need to watch the "current" ones closely and watch their re-election attempts.

Politics as usual in Arkansas. The more layers you peel off the onion, the stinkier it gets.
