Others also believe that cross is a trivialization of a cherished symbol.

To The Daily Sun,

There is a cadre of people on the left who are turning the term "liberal" into an oxymoron. Instead of respecting another's free speech they seek to demean, degrade, and/or ridicule those who don't share their so-called liberal views. In Saturday's paper some chose to claim their faith by demeaning and ridiculing Bishop Paul Blake.

I don't know Bishop Blake, but I do know that Mormons refer to their leaders as "bishop." I know too, that the cross is a universal symbol of Christianity. Bishop Blake expressed his concern over what he and countless others believe is an abuse and trivialization of that cherished symbol. Perhaps those who choose to demean Bishop Blake should ask their clergy whether or not they agree with the bishop's opinion.

To quote an old Boy Scout truism, you don't build yourself up by tearing someone else down.

The reality is, most people in our country want the same things

To The Daily Sun,

The Associated Press stated female demonstrators marched on Saturday, Jan. 21, for equal rights, and against sexism, racism, hatred, and many also protested Donald Trump.

One woman stated women burned their bras in the 1960s for feminism, and some 50 years later, they still haven't been recognized for equal pay and rights for all. There are more people on welfare than ever before, more illegal immigrants and more racial divide since the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The spoiled Hollywood elite is acting all right, acting like spoiled children who didn't get their way. That also represents the 60-plus congressional people who boycotted the inauguration.

Roe v. Wade was before the Supreme Court twice, and is the law of the land.

We are being inundated by multitudes of illegals crossing the border and refugees have been coming from the Middle East and are not being vetted.

The media was without a doubt, behind Hillary Clinton. Fake news was prevalent, e-mail hacking, Wikileaks, FBI, the clandestine meeting with the attorney general and Bill Clinton on the tarmac, and Hillary Clinton's miscalculating Middle America.

The establishment in D.C. has gridlocked the Republicans and the Democrats for a long time. A lot of women voted for Hillary Clinton because she was a woman, even though she was a flawed candidate.

Donald Trump was also a flawed candidate, but campaigned on change from the establishment in Washington. The reality is,most people in America want the same thing: Better jobs, equality, a stronger military and a better infrastructure. Donald Trump was elected P.O.T.U.S. The electoral vote was 305 to 225. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by three million votes. In California, she won by more than three million votes, garnering 55 electoral votes. New York and California, plus Massachusetts, gave her one-third of the total in the electoral vote.

The Democrats were against freeing the slaves, started the KKK, want open borders, promote fear-mongering, incite rioting, yet Donald Trump is blamed for all of the above. He is in his first week as the POTUS, so he deserves a chance to govern.

One final thought. The language used by some of the women at the demonstrations was tantamount to X-rated shows. Shows a lot of class. So sad!
