Laura Ingalls Wilder Running for Congress

Little House on the Prairie is my all-time favorite TV program. I read the series of Laura Ingalls Wilder books twice as a kid. So it saddens me to see the star of that program, Melissa Gilbert who played Laura, running for Congress in Michigan. I’m saddened because she’s running as an extreme pro-abortion candidate, endorsed by all the extreme pro-abortion groups. The incumbent, Mike Bishop, is a solidly pro-life guy. Considering the values that come out of Hollywood, I shouldn’t be surprised. But it’s ironic Melissa got her claim to fame by staring in a TV program with moving and entertaining episodes with good values. And frequently they presented a marvelous Christian message. Time will tell if her TV fame as a wholesome person wins her enough votes.
