While visiting Fresno, where I grew up, I read in The Bee a letter from the Rev. Roger Minassian.
He claims that the Russians don’t matter as much as the “truth.” He then states that we should accept the Lord as our shepherd instead of the government.
Fine, let’s look at his revealed word for a moment. How about the “seven deadly sins:” envy, gluttony, greed, avarice, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath. I support Hillary Clinton in calling out Donald Trump and his minions for embodying these “deplorable” characteristics.
Now, let’s consider Jesus’ teaching about turning the other cheek. Clinton’s response to those who continue to malign her: dignified restraint. Compare that to the unhinged wrath from Trump at every perceived slight, “hitting back 10 times harder.”
Recall that Clinton did win the popular vote by millions. Also, her foundation has been doing good works all over the world as an expression of her deeply held religious beliefs as an actual practicing Christian. Most important to me, though, is the profound lesson of Jesus’ only reported act of physical violence, when he threw the money changers out of the temple.
Anyone for repealing Citizens United?
