Re “Virginia lawmakers spar on reported Trump visit to Jamestown,” Free Press July 25-27 edition:
What would you call someone who goes to church on Sun- day to worship Jesus, a man who lived his life in total integrity and preached the message of love and oneness, yet goes to the polling place and votes for a president who has no integrity and preaches a message of fear and separation?
I would call such a person a hypocrite!
Why would the leaders of the state Democratic Party, the party of the people, even consider attending a meeting with the leader of a party that thrives on fear, separation and the destruction of the religious values that have made the United States the moral compass of the whole world?
The leadership of both the state Senate and House Democratic
caucuses are to be congratulated on their decision not to attend the 400th anniversary celebration of the first meeting of the state’s legislative body in Jamestown since the president was scheduled to be there. They are the keepers of the moral compass.
