I had written an LTE published April 5 "More documentation needed from the left," in which I included: "documentation should be a part of all LTE opinions when those opinions are obviously from any ideologically driven commentary." One LTE attempted to debunk my documented information on the fraud perpetrated on our country during the November 2021 election with nothing but listing many left-wing sources. There was not one specific referenced article with documentation to confirm anything to counter the facts presented in my LTE documentation!
I expect nothing other from leftists who only read headlines from these leftist rags and ignore any possibility of an ideological leftist bias. I cannot understand a reputable newspaper such as the News Tribune doing the same thing. I refer to a April 19 News Tribune front-page Associated Press article "Faith leaders across US join in decrying voter restrictions." This article is so obviously biased against the conservative movement to assure legitimate fraud-free elections, which is the cornerstone of our American constitutional rights! This article seemingly only quotes religious leaders from the most liberal church organizations in America: the Episcopal and Presbyterian churches and primarily activist Black church leaders. Why wouldn't a newspaper investigate the entire spectrum of Christian congregational leaders and publish statistics of all Christian churches position(s) by denomination for a comprehensive truthful reference for us American citizens to support? I challenge the NT to provide information that to require documentation to vote is not supported by a majority of Christians and not cherry-pick the most radical leftist sources.
If America is a racist nation then all the Union soldiers who fought and died in the Civil War was for nothing, all the politicians who voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act were hypocrites and Martin Luther King should be removed from the annals of history because his quote "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character" was a fool's dream.
To infer by this article that the attempt to assure fraud-free elections by verifying the legitimacy of the voter is somehow un-Christian and we Christians should be shamed into allowing the socialists to fraudulently control our elections cannot be in accordance with the NT "Statement of Core Values."
