We Have Polluted the Seat of Justice

Calvin on the importance on who we elect to public office and how we are to go about doing so:

"...when we are going to elect men to some public position, we must set about it reverently and carefully. For we shall provoke God's anger if we pollute the seat of justice, putting men in it who have neither the zeal nor the interest to honor and serve it..."

Oops! Maybe next time we will get it right.
