Letter to the editor: What will Jesus do with us?

Are we a country that wants to become like President Trump? To lie, cheat, break laws and become an immoral nation, where winning is everything and the ends justify any means? Where mercy, compassion and understanding are replaced by hate? Are we a nation under God?

We pit the rich against the poor. The privileged reap most of the benefits of our society and many people feel left out, without any hope. It is all fixed for Wall Street to reap the benefits of the stock market. There is corruption in plain sight as we turn our cheeks to the almighty dollar.

We use religion to justify our means. We blame others for our problems, when greed is the cause of them.

Social Security, Medicare, health care and our national debt can be fixed easily, but time is running out. We can’t learn to get along with each other. We learn nothing from our mistakes. We are no better than animals. What will Jesus do with us and our nation?

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
