Re: Kevin Foley column
I can only hope that the MDJ will have the same courage to print my letter as they had in printing the Friday column by Kevin Foley. I do not read his article on a regular basis as I am aware that we are of extremely different opinions politically, but seeing Dr. Carson’s name in the headline was a draw. I was appalled and disgusted with Foley’s misrepresentation of Carson’s remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast as well as his interpretation of the biblical teaching to “render unto Caesar those things that are Caesar’s.” Of course, why should anyone not expect that Mr. Foley would take the words of Jesus Christ and manipulate them to his liberal thinking?
The primary purpose of this article was to distort and disparage Dr. Carson and all that this gentleman stands for as a conservative. It is beyond understanding as to what extreme liberals such as Foley are so afraid of when someone disagrees with their opinions. I think he should fear not, as the party he so admires has held minorities back with free goodies for votes for many years. To refer to Dr. Carson and former Congressman Alan West as “lost souls” because they are black conservatives has to be one of the most insulting statements ever put in print.
Thank God I am one of those “lost souls” as well.
