The two articles stood in sharp contrast. Bishop Armando Ochoa spoke of how, in today’s world, the “Catholic community can be instruments of hope in the name of Jesus.” In contrast, the Rev. Booker T. Lewis II spoke of how the mayor and the city government should pay for and give us the things we want and need in our city.
I am waiting for Part II from Rev. Lewis on what the churches and Christian community can do for our city. I also await Part III on what the citizens of Fresno can do for our city and better themselves. We must get out of the “give me and do for me” mentality that this good pastor advocates.
Unfortunately, the pastor’s article was not even biblical. It was a liberal political monologue that got us into this problem in the first place.
Thus, we await your next two articles, Pastor Lewis, with hope.
