After numerous letters to the editor, I was asked to write a weekly column for the local newspaper.
I said yes. I think I might have been in a senior moment. Just kidding! Maybe.
It was mostly a take on political issues at the national, state, and local level, and often included a Christian perspective, and certainly a strong conservative stance.
It pains me greatly to see how this country is descending into not only political chaos but a spiritual vacancy that has eroded the moral fiber of America.
Only by returning to the principles of the Founding Fathers and a renewed faith in God will this country be saved.
UPDATE: the local paper and I parted ways. They refused to print a column on government coverups. I promised myself if that ever occurred I would withdraw my column. In all fairness, the Courier Post editor did offer to “pick it up next week” but refused to print the current article, saying we “can’t accuse the government” of such things.
So I will continue my writing in this blog, and hopefully it will do some good.
“Christianity is indispensable to the true interests and solid foundations of free government.”
