The Kentucky Baptist Convention passed a resolution at their annual meeting condemning gambling expansion recently proposed in Frankfort. They make several good points beginning with the idea that gambling violates the principle of loving your neighbor. They go on to say that it violates the principle of work, "looking to gain something for nothing, hoping for easy money rather than pursuing responsible industry, investment, and labor. Gambling also "violates the principle of good government allowing it to "prey on their own citizens rather than protecting them and seeking their good." It also violates the "principle of contentment, enticing individuals to greed and covetousness in the hope that in winning, others will lose. And finally gambling violates the principle of good stewardship, encouraging reckless and careless speculation with resources entrusted to them by the Lord."
