Pull off rose-colored glasses to see truth

In reference to Sadie Dotson’s letter of Oct. 11, 2013, I just want to say a couple things.

She speaks of those “bad” Republicans being “ignorant” and “prejudicial.” And she speaks of all the “good” things our president is for. She says she critiques it all by our Lord Jesus, so let us turn the page. I see what the good and bad things our Lord Jesus is for and against.

He is for the sanctity of life in the womb, of the unborn, our most innocent. Now that’s “good.” Our president is for abortion, the murder of the most innocent. Now how can that be good? So “bad.”

Our Lord Jesus is for the traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Now that’s “good.” Our president enforces and affirms man marrying man and woman marrying woman. Now how can that be good? So “bad.” Read the first chapter of Romans 5. These ungodly issues alone can and will bring down a civilization, it happened in Sodom and Gomorrah.

God have mercy on a people and a nation who have become so politically correct that His word is not honored, believed and obeyed.

So, ”ignorant and prejudiced”? Certainly not our Lord Jesus, so who?

Folks it’s time to pull off the rose-colored glasses and see truth and reality. Think about it.

Something is very wrong with gas prices

I bought 87 octane gasoline from Sheetz in Wytheville for $2.97. In Beckley, it is $3.43.

Something is very wrong with what we pay for gasoline locally.

And don’t tell me that it is taxes and transportation that makes the difference.
