Beware of false prophets. I read with disgust the Maine Compass on June 27 by state Sen. Roger Katz joining forces with the Democrats and the liberal media in being critical of Gov. Paul LePage.

We should ask the senator, “Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own eye?” Matthew 7:3.

Oct. 13, 2012, was Walk for Hope day for cancer survivors, a fundraiser. That day was in the middle of an election campaign. That morning Katz showed up at the walk with campaign buttons and passed them around. Did he think he might be the great hope for a cancer cure?

I have lost two family members to cancer, and I have a friend currently dealing with breast cancer. Katz’s campaigning at a fundraiser for cancer survivors was far more despicable than any blunt statement LePage could make.

Such tactics were simply repulsive. Voters should take the senator off the pedestal.

Personally, I prefer a plain, blunt-talking person, the likes of LePage to the likes of any smooth-talking politician who exploits worthy causes for their own political ends.

Katz should “stop judging, that (he) may not be judged.” Matthew 7:1.

My advice to Maine voters, especially in Senate District 24, is to be wary of politicians in sheep’s clothing.
