One cannot be both

Dear Editor,

I wish to respond to the letter to editor, titled ‘Admonition to small town east central Alberta’, pg. 2, Jan. 9, 2020.

Thank you for drawing this to my attention and motivating me to review my shopping habits.

Your letter was creative, entertaining and enlightening.

You were bang-on with your ‘admonition’ and pro-active with your remedy.

The second letter, titled, ‘Low hanging fruit’, pg. 4, Jan. 16, 2020. I regret that I didn’t see the editorial ‘Misplaced faith’, that she was addressing. But I do know her points exemplify the saying that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

I submit that ‘evangelical Christian’ slash ‘Trump supporter’, is an oxymoron.

One cannot be both.

Donald Trump either lies, brags or bullies every time he speaks.

He indulges in a hedonistic life-style and his narcissism and delusions of grandeur, have no boundaries.

As a leader, he is dangerous and corrupt as evidenced by making Russia, North Korea and Turkey his new best ‘friends’ while shunning traditional allies.

Also, his actions in the Middle East which have further destabilized the region; and, his self-serving demands made on Ukraine.

Contrary to a belief purported by Rev. Franklin Graham, it was the Russians, not God, who wanted Trump elected.

Trump bears no resemblance to anything I was taught about Christians and yet evangelicals align themselves with such a person.

The hypocrisy is mind-boggling.
