It scares me that bishop might actually be ministering to people

To The Daily Sun,

I am unsure as to just what Bishop Paul W. Blake is a bishop of, but he sure loves to quote the Bible in past letters. He writes, "God acts to burst the bubble of all who depend upon their own wisdom and think they have everything figured out." If he actually watched the news regarding Donald Trump he might think differently, because Donald Trump is certainly the single most arrogant man to ever run for the presidency and one who brags that he knows more about everything than any one else, and that he is the only one who can possibly fix things. Here are some quotations he can use in his next letter.

Quotations like:

— Proverbs 27:2 "Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips."

— Proverbs 15:1 "A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger."

— Galatians 5:19-21 "Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God."

— James 3:16 "For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice."

But most definitely 1 Timothy 6:4 sums up Mr. Trump: "He is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, and evil suspicions."

So a "bishop" who claims to be a voice for God and the Lord says that the Lord tells him to vote for a sexual predator? An abuser of women? A thief? A liar? A traitor? A bigot? Really?

Christ would have thrown Donald Trump right the hell out of the Temple without so much as a backward glance.

Well, Your Worship, I think that voice you were hearing may be the voice of some fallen angel, but certainly not of the Lord. Maybe next he'll tell you that if you want to get involved in politics, you should give up your tax-exempt status and live in the real world. It scares me that someone who thinks like you is actually ministering to people in need and doubt and fear.

Just like it scares me to think that Donald Trump might lead my country. And I think that his "bubble" is going to burst next Tuesday.

And oh, by the way, Hillary Clinton was also a recipient of the Ellis Island Medal in 1999. Bill Clinton was a recipient, as well. Donald Trump was initially honored in 1986 because of his business success back then and (specifically) his German heritage. Based on their current criteria for the award, I highly doubt he would qualify any longer.

Imperative that we limit government to size & score originally envisioned

To The Daily Sun,

I believe in God, family, personal responsibility and integrity.

In Concord, I have been working on a solution to lower property taxes and more efficiently manage and safeguard our revenue deposits. For more information go to www.bankingonNH.org.

It is imperative that we the people maintain all of our freedoms as outlined in the Bill of Rights, and limit government to the size and scope, as defined in the New Hampshire and U.S. Constitutions written of, by and for the people. See www.valeriefraser4staterep.org.

John Philpot Curran said, "The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."

Please vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

State Rep. Valerie Fraser

State representative for Belknap District 1 (New Hampton and Center Harbor)
