What happened?

I find it hard to believe that any group of people is all bad.

We Americans are very good at typecasting different social groups that are not like "us" (who is "us" by the way?), such as black people, Mexicans, Japanese, Germans, Irish, Muslim, gays, etc.

It is very difficult for me to believe that all Republicans support the disastrous moves that Trump has made to destroy American health care, laws and world opinion.

I have always had great respect for what I considered Republican values, even if they were somewhat different from mine, but I never doubted that at their heart most Republicans cared for the good of the country.

What has happened to people who can still support what has happened here in the U.S. from Nov. 8 to June 9?

Where have all the American heroes gone? We heard one speak the other day. It's a start.

Nancy Fitz-Gerald Viens,

Listen first

A recent letter writer obviously knows nothing of Dr. Jim Mann's teaching. Jim's message to his congregation has always been and will always be straight out of Scripture.

I have been a member of New Life Church, where Dr. Mann is the lead pastor, for about 15 years. During that time there was never even an inference to a "Santa God." Jim's message is based on a belief of God's grace, mercy and goodness toward those who put their faith in God's Son, Jesus Christ.

Jim does, however, also believe and teach that God is also a God of holiness, righteousness and justice and that we all will ultimately face judgment for the way we live here on earth.

His article in the paper was, in my estimation, only stating that those who preach and teach in the name of God should not be told what they can and cannot say to their congregations.

The government has attempted to silence ministers from voicing what they believe are biblical views on modern government policies. If letter writers wish to voice opinions about what someone preaches from the pulpit, they should first listen to what is actually preached.
