Letters to the Editor

Response to letter

To the Editor:

I just read a letter to the editor (“Christian Republicans,” July 22) in the newspaper and must respond.

I am a Christian Republican, and I happen to know many others. I am amazed at this letter’s over-generalizations and find it hard to imagine that the author really believes what she writes.

For her to insinuate that being a Christian and a Republican is a contradiction is indicative of someone who is skewing the facts to suit their own agenda. I hope that America wakes up and realizes that it is the Democratic agenda that is often unchristian, self-serving and problematic, and that the majority of issues we face as a nation are due largely to the government overreach espoused by the Democratic Party.

Self-reliance is one of the fundamental principles under which this country was founded. I don’t know one of my fellow Christian Republicans who would deny anyone legitimately needing assistance. It is those who don’t need it yet who think they are entitled to it that has developed into a never-ending and impossible-to-fund gravy train.
