Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

America is squandering its wealth on riotous living, war, and welfare. It is subsidizing all kinds of perverse lifestyles and practices with the public purse. America is sacrificing millions of innocent children for the convenience of the mothers, all in the name of the invented "right of choice."

Obama goes on, "I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years, and I believe in God's command to love thy neighbor as thyself. I know a version of that golden rule is found in every major religion and every set of beliefs." And we too believe in the golden rule. And we wish it animated not the largess of Government but the actions of individuals.

The Bible we read also speaks out against covetousness and theft. And the promotion of division and class warfare promoted by this administration clearly promotes the citizenry to desire the wealth owned by others.

We believe that the Bible's teachings are clearly understandable and are accessible to all that will take the time to read it. There is much to be learned by diligent study of the Word of God; we pray that Obama will take more care when he quotes scripture in the future.

There are many passages throughout the Bible that mandate the poor and widowed should receive care, and we believe private charity is much better than a faceless government bureaucracy at delivering the care and individual attention required when people are in need. We cannot find anywhere in our Bible a call for high taxes and the confiscation of private property. Instead, we find those passages in the Communist Manifesto. Maybe Obama is confused.
