Casino gambling not likely in MA


Gov. Deval Patrick has been pushing the idea of casino gambling pretty much since he was elected. It looks like, as of this week, the bill is going to die. I'm quite pleased. I understand how tempting all that revenue is. Especially since so many of our constituents go next door to gamble. But Patrick's figures depend on a huge increase of gambling losses for Mass residents. I can attest to the the societal and familial devastation this will have- not a loss that can be made up for with that increase in revenue.

Speaking to the issue on a spiritual level: The South East Asian community is ravaged by gambling. I am convinced there is a demonic stronghold on them making them vulnerable to this sin. It's nothing that Jesus can't defeat. But given the percentage of S.E. Asians in my city- the revenue tempting our legislatures would never be able to undue the destruction. Thankfully, our local representatives are leaning against MA casinos. I'll email them to encourage that.
