I have never written to the paper before but was shocked by what I read in the letters to the editor. The Thursday letter, "Let's drop the 'big lie,' get to work" that compares President Donald Trump to Jesus is bordering on blasphemy.
To my recollection, Jesus was never accused of groping a woman, let alone 24. He did not amass wealth. Especially at the expense of others. He was never accused of discrimination. Jesus loved his enemies as much as his followers.
Our president calls his detractors childish names and berates them and their families. Jesus was not a liar. Our leader? Read his tweets! Jesus found no need to surround himself with rich and powerful people. He walked among the poor. He cured the sick. He did not amass wealth. Mr. Trump? He hobnobs with the wealthy, brags of his riches, and wants to take away health care from those who need it most.
In closing , you can argue the president's policy all day long but if you think he is ANYTHING like Jesus, I would suggest that you go back and reread the Bible. Or read it for the first time.
