Tea Partiers hear ProosPublished 9:59pm Wednesday, April 18, 2012
“While the numbers are few today, the believers are many,” state Sen. John Proos told a dozen people Sunday afternoon at Cass County Tea Party’s third annual Tax Day rally beside the 1899 courthouse.
Accompanied by his daughter, Elena, the St. Joseph Republican said the message at church the second week of Easter revolved around Jesus Christ rising after the Crucifixion and Doubting Thomas.
“Imagine doubts under the tyranny of a king,” Proos said. “They couldn’t practice religion or live in a free society. Our nation became what it is today because it was founded on Christian principles of freedom and a government of, by and for the people. Founders left us with our Constitution, which has withstood the test of time.
“People you send to represent you need to remember that,” Proos said. “The believers need to be reminded. That’s the key today.”
