Letters to the Editor 9/22/12

— Decision Day

To the Editor: November 6, presidential election day, many Democrats and Republicans will vote not in “The Spirit of Love” but in “The Spirit of Hate.” Hank Williams Jr., a few weeks ago, entertained his southern audience at Billy Bob’s with the lyrics, “We have a Muslim for President,” and “We hate him.” No one got up and left!

On the local front, Charles Lennon in the Sept. 16 Daily Sun opinion page, in my opinion, is promoting hate. Mr. Lennon commented that people are waking up to the reality that we elected a dictator who hates America. Mr. Lennon suggests we pray for forgiveness. For what, I might ask?

I’d suggest Hank Williams Jr. and Mr. Lennon read “the Gospel according to John.”

Before the feast of the Passover, Jesus talks to his disciples about love and hate.

John 15:18 If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.

Remember — when you hate or promote hate, you also are hating “our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Jim Basham

Need more world news

To the Editor: I like the Corsicana Daily Sun. The only thing that concerns me is there is barely any national news, I take the Dallas newspaper, so I get most all the national news I need.  But, what about the people that don't take another paper?

We are having trouble big time in a lot of countries in the middle east right now, they have killed our Ambassador and other American people while we are there trying to help them. This started on 9/11. Now our President is playing this down saying it wasn't planned, they are just mad because someone made a movie they didn't like. If you watched it on TV it looked very well planned.  Whether it was planned or not, is not the question.

Why do we keep giving millions and billions of our hard earned dollars to terrorists that buy guns with that money. Does that make sense to anyone? They hate us, you can't make friends by giving them money.

Our country is broke, we can either print more money, or borrow it from China.

But wait. Why can't we just stop giving money to those who hate us?

Barbara A. Whitfield

Streetman,
