A Biblical Critique of Candidates Answers
By David J. Vaughan
Consulting Editor, St. Louis MetroVoice

    Candidates within the readership area of the MetroVoice running for Missouri state level offices of Governor, Lt. Governor, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, Attorney General, plus candidates in both Missouri and Illinois running for state Senate and House of Representatives offices, were sent a questionnaire consisting of 10 topics. Under each topic we provided statements pertaining to the topic and asked candidates to select one of the statements which best described his or her position or came closest to their opinion on the topic.
Listed below are the 10 topics along with the statement that we believe the
candidate should have chosen from a Christian world-view.  Justification ofour position from a biblical viewpoint follows each statement.
    The MetroVoice highly recommends that readers compare the candidate's responses to decide whether or not the candidate responded from a biblical world-view perspective.

Vote "NO" to Retain MO Supreme Court Judge Richard B. Teitelman
Commentary by Kerry Messer

Publisher’s Note
Judges of the Supreme Court of Missouri, as well as judges on all of Missouri’s Courts of Appeal  and the Circuit Courts in Clay County, Jackson County, Platte County, the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County (Kansas City & St. Louis areas) are all appointed through what is called the “Nonpartisan Court Plan.” Therefore, justices on these courts fall within the MetroVoice’s nonpartisan policy -- the same as ballot issues. As with ballot issues, this gives us the freedom to make recommendations as to whether or not judges appointed through the Nonpartisan Court Plan should be retained or rejected. Since these justices are not candidates for office and are not officially aligned with any political party, churches are free to recommend to their members that they be either retained or rejected as well.

    On your November 2nd, 2004 General Election ballot there will be a statewide retention vote for one of the most powerful and liberal judges in Missouri. If approved, he will serve for twelve more years!
    Missouri Supreme Court Judge Richard B. Teitelman was appointed to the state’s highest court on February 21st, 2002.  Teitelman’s appointment was the second such liberal addition to Missouri’s highest court made by our current Governor, Bob Holden. Holden of course was rejected by his own Democrat Party in the August 3rd election.
    With Holden’s second selection seated on the bench, Missouri’s top court swung to a liberal, leftist 4 to 3 majority for the first time in our state’s history. This realignment of Missouri’s judiciary to a liberal activist court poses a real threat to the culture that our children and our children’s children will inherit.
    Teitelman has written several activist decisions since his appointment which expose him as much more liberal than most. The following are just four examples of Judge Teitlelman’s radical, anti-family, activist decisions. Full documentation on the following decisions, as well as other state court cases, can be found on the Missouri Courts web site at www.courts.mo.gov.
