Caserta must stop the blame game

Caserta must stop the blame game

Mark Caserta's article blaming liberals and progressives for all the evil in the world today is way off base, as usual. I would ask him and his conservative, narrow-minded Christians who want to blame certain segments of our society for all the ills of today to study their bibles more and preach less on the causes of immorality and stop the hateful, evil throwing of stones.

Caserta might find that in the time of Jeremiah and throughout the Old Testament, God had to bring judgment on his own people for straying away from his laws and his ways. God never blamed it on a society being progressive or conservative, but their ungodliness and unwillingness to do what was moral. Immorality, Mr. Caserta, can include idolatry, love of money, greed, holding debt over the heads of people, false claims and lies that forces people to bear the unbearable, none of which you discuss in your article. I don't see you arguing that debt be forgiven every seven years or enacting any biblical laws that might give people a second chance at life.

I invite Mr. Caserta to read Deuteronomy 15 or, better yet, the Old Testament to get a sense of morality and godliness to get a starting point for his argument. I remind Mr. Caserta that the Supreme Court and Congress sets many of the laws by which we live and are responsible for many of our problems of immorality. Furthermore, they consist of both liberal and conservative lawmakers and justices.

Our problems are problems of warfare between good and evil and as a progressive, I am proud to move forward and make this world a better place, a Godly place. I urge you, Mr. Caserta, as a conservative, to pray for the same and stop the BLAME GAME!
