About: The Family
I read in The Daily Reader about the difference in what the writer’s husband considers a family and in what she considered one. Her husband thought it was the nuclear family consisting of a husband, wife and children. She disagreed and said a family was the husband, wife, children, grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. The husband was shocked when she invited her family for Sunday dinner. I agree with the writer. What do you think?
About: Election News
News people, both written and broadcasters, have taken over the November election. All that we read in the metro papers, hear on radio and TV or see on the computers is not either candidates’ words but a few excerpts and the author’s opinion. On television news, we see a picture of either candidate talking, as if in a silent movie, and the news anchor talking over him and, of course, ending with his opinion. How can we citizens decide who to vote for when the media does not let us hear exactly what each candidates’ program is about? What do you think?
Christians and Jews who know and practice their religion could not possibly vote for any candidate who favors abortion, gay marriage, interfering with complete religious freedom and also wants the elimination of programs to help reform those people who think they have gay tendencies. Practicing Christians and Jews would have a difficult moral decision to make before voting for a candidate who favors those objectives. What do you think?
