Bible remains the best guide to truth

We have all seen the videos of the lawlessness, looting, thievery, etc., perpetrated by individuals or groups of all sizes. And blame gets thrown at district attorneys, mayors, police, etc.

The real and lasting solution will never be found in government. As John Adams said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

In the nearly 60 years since prayer and Bible reading were removed from our public schools, we have lost much of our national and individual "moral and religious" nature.

Even if one ignores the parts of the Bible about Jesus and salvation (although I do not recommend ignoring Jesus), the Bible is the best book available for guiding human thoughts and actions. U.S. history, even with some major flaws, is abundant evidence that We the People are a special light for good in the world.

We cannot continue to tolerate increasing governmental hostility to biblical principles. We can only return to being a nation that is a standard for good if We the People adopt and endorse wisdom and truth as found in the Bible.

What exactly prompts social media bans?

All the following misinformation may or may not get me banned from Twitter and Facebook.

COVID-19 is a real threat to our children. Rep. Cortez and Rep. Greene are two of our finest leaders. Without weapons, our government came within inches of being violently overthrown on Jan. 6, 2021. Testing is the answer. For reasons unknown, Ivermectin should definitely be banned. Inflation is temporary. Spending non-existent money is the solution. Biden is the most intelligent president we've ever had. Fauci is always correct. The election was stolen. Trump is an all-around nice guy. And of course, CNN and Fox are both great sources for real news.

No political motive in marking of Jan. 6

I am accustomed to giving only the most cursory of glances to the idiocies that normally "grace" the right side of the Times Free Press' editorial page, telling myself to "consider the source" and move on with life.

But I cannot let the editorial cartoon for the Jan. 6 edition pass without a protest. Jan. 6, 2021, witnessed an attack on the U.S. Capitol by forces deluded by a defeated president into attempting a coup that would have overthrown our constitutional republic.

It came perilously close to succeeding. Claiming, as your editorial cartoon does, that commemorating that assault has a political motive is beneath contempt. Shame on you.
