Letters to the editor

By M.L. (Joe) Stock

Render unto...

In response to Fred Richardson's letter of Jan. 29 (Letters to the Editor, Sun Advocate).

First of all I have had a lot of compliments and people contact me and agree with my letter that he criticized. That has actually been done about many letters I have written to the Sun Advocate, but especially the one he referred to in his latest letter.

Fred's original letter (Nov. 20, 2012) was, I thought, mostly are repeat of the Romney campaign speeches which he claims were absolute facts. He claims there were no facts in my response, yet everyone I talk to says there were facts there.

Fred said or implied that if Romney were elected everything would have been perfect or that everyone would be employed in a high paying job.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I didn't find any facts in his letter.

Fred asked that people should tell him why they voted for Obama. I did tell him why, and I also included facts why I did not vote for Romney.

Fred says that Obama is unwilling to compromise. The compromise I criticized Obama for was in order to get the debt limit raised which would have put us into a deep recession.

I didn't comment on many of his points, but merely responded as to why I voted for Obama.

I am a liberal. I got all my liberal beliefs from the four most liberal books ever written: the four gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John.

I do believe in the separation of government and religion. I believe when Christ was presented with the coin with Caesar's picture on it he said render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's (their government) and render unto God that which is God's.

That was the separation of church and state.
