I'd like to see the places fail financially because WE DON'T GO! They will be beckoning and advertising to the hilt and I can hear young Christians now --saying that it would be legalistic --like never entering theaters --to have a conviction against attending the new "respectable" casino.
Imagine the new indebtedness of gamblers, the new addicts, the prostitution available "under the table" so to speak, the low cost drinks to entice attendance, the temptation to alcoholics to add gambling to their troubles? on top of LOTTO.
The lure of easy money for state gov't is foolishness --when you consider all the new poor the state will have to support when people gamble everything away to local Las Vegas.
"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible
