Governor Blunt tells those attending the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast in Jefferson City that faith plays a role in government, but that people of faith must be careful about how that role plays out. Blunt says it’s not wrong to hold to moral certainty, but trouble arises with how people treat those with whom they disagree. Blunt says spirited debate will arise during the legislative session. He says lawmakers should seek common ground and treat those with whom we differ with kindness and respect. Former US Attorney General John Ashcroft, who served as governor from 1985 to 1993, says two voices compete to be heard in today’s society. One says not to worry about the consequences. Ashcroft says the voice of God says to be careful about what you do, because you make a big difference.
