Letters to the Editor

This Week's Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

A statue of a Confederate soldier that stood high atop a Georgia cemetery was severely vandalized with the statue`s hands and rifle cut off and its face bashed in. 

What was done to the defenseless statue that can not strike back is done to living people with abortion and alcohol. People are mangled for money or for hate in the case of the Confederate statue. In this Dark and Evil Age with the drunk, the adulterer, the hate filled marijuana puffing black thug, the mother hating her child, the greedy clinic willing to kill it, the America hating politician in charge of America despising American history and heritage, the murdering sleeper agents for communism and Islam, and just the pukey store robber, all America trembles.

The oppressors are not man enough to live as God commands and not human enough to love their neighbor and their children. Boy enough to pick up a bottle of beer but not man enough to put it down to save thousands of lives. A Dark Age with a black Friday and bloody rest of the week:

  Zephaniah 2King James Version (KJV)

2 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;

2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord's anger come upon you.

3 Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger.

The American people should rise up in righteous indignation and stop the lovers of self and evil from despoiling the nation, murdering the children, and placing us in the path of God's Holy wrath.

Dear Editor: 

Just wanted to give you a “thumbs up” in appreciation of fire safety message How to Create an Effective Fire Safety Plan in this weeks edition of the Progress. Reporter Angela Reinhardt also had a very good article on fire prevention that I hope everyone in our mountain communities had the opportunity to read (June 2017)...
