Another Bennett Statement

This one from Concerned Women for America, a social-Right group: “Concerned Women for America commends our friend Bill Bennett’s bold move to cease gambling despite an absence of personal conviction. Taking responsibility for his example to others, he has once again demonstrated good character. America’s families are reeling under the epidemic results of rampant gambling. Bankruptcies have increased exponentially; families are crumbling under the weight of irresponsible gambling losses. We pray that Mr. Bennett will remain firm in his resolve to eliminate gambling from his life and will not hesitate to seek any help he may need in keeping his resolve” (paragraph breaks omitted).
