ACA will save lives

March 31 was the last day to sign up for health care coverage on HealthCare.gov. The website was part of a greater program under the Affordable Care Act, which was meant to provide health care to people. The main concern of this is people's pocketbooks. They fear their money will go to pay for the health care of citizens who cannot afford health care services. My question to those people is: Do they believe in the sanctity of life? It is true this will bring health care to people who could not afford it on their own, but as a good Christian, Muslim, Jew, or even an atheist, it is our duty to help others and make their lives better, no matter the detriment to our finances or any other concern. The fact that this will save lives outshines any other argument presented.

Crying out against sin

For you who would like for us to be silent, may I say that we will always cry out against sin. Don't read our letters if they offend you. I am offended by columnists who think it is cute to write about their family chronicles and publish them in our newspaper. Wasted space. But I don't read the newspaper anymore. I used to read it from cover to cover though.
