Letters to the editor

I worked with a foreman whose famous saying was "People who live in glass houses should not throw stones."

I grew up in house where I was taught the Ten Commandments. One of the Ten Commandments said, "You shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor." Martin Luther gave this explanation for this commandment: "You should not betray, lie, slander or gossip about your neighbor but defend them, speak well of them and put the most charitable construction on all that they do."

I have to confess I have not always lived up to this commandment.

We are seeing a president who is doing everything to find dirt on an opponent. Our president should be setting the example how to live a Christian life. I am not seeing it. Why would anyone want to run for a political office when we have this kind of atmosphere?

We need to examine ourselves and see where we have fallen short. Wouldn't it be a different campaign if politicians would have a positive atmosphere?
