Years ago a college professor gave his students a problem to solve. He told them about a pregnant woman who already had several children and some problems in her life. Then he asked the students for their opinion as to whether the woman should give birth to her pre-born child or have an abortion.
Letters to the Editor
God seems to have a master plan to balance out the good people and the bad people in every family. As I am civilly committed for life to the Missouri Department of Mental Health, I am the stereotypical “bad people” of my family. To balance out all the sins I have committed over the past 70-plus years, God added my granddaughter Andrea to the family tree.
President Trump and many of his supporters attack those who do not support Trump's policies, decisions or actions by calling them partisans. They imply that anyone who is partisan cannot be believed.
Previously I wrote that the so-called "Prosperity Gospel" (that is, that God wants all of His people to be rich and successful, etc.) is a plaque on Christianity.
Instead of reasoned arguments Trump resorts to name calling to attack his perceived enemies and to excite his supporters. Fear and anger are enemies of rational thought and therefore an effective device of autocrats.
