Perhaps there's more to the story but jail authorities need to respond

To The Daily Sun,

According to Pastor Robert Horne's letter in The Daily Sun on March 18, the "authorities of the jail" instituted a policy the prohibits him and/or his church from telling the truth of the Bible at the prison.

Perhaps this is a new policy brought in by the new supervisor of the prison, as we know Dan Ward recently retired from that position. This is another government policy that stems the freedom of religion and so the excellent charitable work of Pastor Horne will be stopped.

Perhaps there is more to the story than I see in Pastor Horne's letter.

The "authorities" at the House of Corrections ought to respond publicly to this issue, as it is a most important one. Doing some wondrous good at the prison should be rewarded, not stopped.

Dear Ted Cruz: Jesus told us to take care of the least among us

To The Daily Sun,

Ted Cruz likes to speak for God. Unfortunately what he says doesn't sound much like the God he claims to follow.

That God sent his only Son to earth to heal and minister to the sick. Christ told us to take care of the "least" of his brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children and all of our neighbors. Remember Jesus' words in Matthew 25:31-46 when he judged who would enter Heaven? "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me."

Doesn't sound much like Senator Cruz, who constantly threatens to take away people's medical care because they are poor and cannot afford adequate coverage as well as eliminate most threads of what we call the safety net.

This criterion is in that same Bible which Cruz constantly quotes when it's to his convenience. We need to remind Ted and his dad to practice what they preach.
