THIS IS A LETTER TO THE EDITOR IN OUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER THAT WAS POSTED ON NOVEMBER 1ST. HOW COULD A MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL WRITE THIS AND WHY WAS MY RESPONSE TO IT NOT PRINTED UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION? FOR THE PAST WEEK THE ONLY THING PRINTED (99%) IS ANTI TRUMP) BECAUSE ELECTION IS TOMORROW. BELOW THE NEWSPAPER ARTICLE IS MY RESPONSE TO REV. LEES LETTER
America loses if GOP wins
Nov 1, 2018
I am a 75, almost 76, year old minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I am an African-American who grew up in the Jim Crow era in America.
I thought I had gotten used to the hatred, the mean looks and the prejudicial attitude but it appears to be getting worse since Donald Trump became president. If you don’t believe it, walk a mile in my color.
Donald Trump is more concerned about Donald Trump. His agenda is about me, my and I. He doesn’t really care bout his supporters. He is a con man and they are being flim-flammed. It’s really his wallet that he is concerned about.
A vote for the Republican Party is a vote for Donald Trump and a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for cuts in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, no health care insurance, new diseases caused by deregulation of everything that needs to be regulated to keep us safe, contaminated drinking water, pollution like you have never seen before, crumbling infrastructure, and no pre-existing conditions being covered.
This election is not a joke. If you really care about this country and democracy we all better take it seriously.
What is this president teaching our children? It’s okay to lie, it’s okay to be a big bully, it’s okay to disrespect women and little girls as long as you win. It doesn’t matter how you win. It doesn’t matter if the Republican Party uses corruptive tactics to suppress voter registration. If the Republicans win, America loses.
And for all you haters, you can’t take that hate to Heaven with you. God is Love. Think about it!
This letter is in response to Sarah Lee’s letter to the Star Democrat on Thursday. “How much easier it is to be critical than to be correct.” Therefore, to set the record straight, I wanted to address some of the criticism directed towards Trump. What has become worse since Donald Trump has become President? The hate is from the liberals and the Democrat party, not President Trump. They are the ones who are spreading the hate. Since you have brought religion into this you as a minister of the Gospel should recognize this and Call for the good. Why do you as a minister of the Gospel align yourself to a party that promotes just about everything the Bible Condemns? I do not have to walk a mile in your colour as you have stated. I have walked many a mile in my own colour which is white and I have had many a trouble in my lifetime. I was poor, bullied by others because of being poor and looked at as second class, but yet by God’s Grace I arose above that. There are many people like me that rose above the hate and the bullying. The hate is getting worse in this country but Donald Trump is not causing it. Donald Trump’s agenda is not about his self or his wallet. It is about the American people and what is right. He has done so much already for this country, while not taking a cent in pay. More people in this country and this includes the black people have gone back to work and unemployment is at an all-time low. The economy is thriving. There is an all-time high of black people joining the Republican Party. How can one blame Trump for our crumbling infrastructure when it has been there for many a year and our inner cities are crumbling not because of Trump but by the management of the elected officials who are in most cases are Democrats. And you say Trump is disrespecting women. You are wrong again. I would say any party or president that promotes men using the woman’s bathroom is by far disrespecting woman. You are right this election is no joke. A vote for President Trump is a vote for America. Hate comes in many forms and should never be tolerated in any form. You are right you cannot take hate to heaven with you. You also cannot stand with people that go against what the Bible teaches and expect to go to Heaven.
