Evil running wild

To the Editor:

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?” (Psalm 27:1)

Evil exists and, if permitted, will destroy. Visibly, this cancer is running wild through the Middle East. It quietly sneaks over our unsecured borders from Mexico. What is more dangerous to us is the evil that exists inside our country. We are losing respect for the truth, our laws, individual life, neighbor’s property and personal responsibility.

Evil actions have become acceptable to many on the left, tolerated by many on the right and endorsed by a few of our clergy. Convenient abortions, gay parades and same-sex marriages grab the newspaper headlines. But a president who consistently lies to the American people, renowned civil rights leaders who stir up racism at every opportunity and innocent kids in Chicago being murdered every week we allow to continue.

What is happening? Is it that we cannot discern between good and evil? Or is it that we prefer evil over good? President Obama and those like him in government are destroying our country. Lying requires that there be no transparency. Hence, the need for cover-up after cover-up.

“For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds be exposed” (John 3:20). Sounds like self-examination time.
