Your View: A thought and a prayer

JOPLIN, Mo. — Our president meets with his voters and says, “Let’s get revenge.”

The most dangerous place in America for an unborn child is in a mother’s trip to Planned Parenthood.

We are shown a political commercial of a young man pushing Granny off a cliff.

An unmarried woman stands at a political convention on national TV and says, “A vote against birth control is a war on women.”

In the New America where outside preaches tolerance and its inside shows intolerance, no one is allowed to question whether these policies might be hailstones punching holes in the roof of our Western culture in a national debate. Already having a dulled conscience, we make “the gun king of purpose” to justify erasing the Second Amendment that has stood for more than 200 years.

Oh, Lord.

Help our country whose politicians take pleasure in tale bearing, evil surmises and misrepresentations, blowing up the sparks of contention into a flame and with unaccountable pleasure, warm their hands.
