Letter: Conservatism's greed, superior attitude is sickening


The Herald Bulletin

---- — In reference to Jim Janes' letter to The Herald Bulletin published Jan. 22, I am in full agreement with Mr. Janes. In fact, the fowl stench of greed and false sense of superiority which permeates conservatism turns my stomach.

Our new Pope Francis reminds all Christians that to turn our backs on those so-called morally, financially or even racially "lesser individuals" is in the words of Jesus, to turn your back on him. Yet this is standard operating procedure for those like the Koch brothers, the tea party and our own Gov. Mike Pence. To them I wish sweet dreams and hope they never have to worry about being sick, hungry and too poor to do anything about it. Remember, the Bible says "It's easier to pass a camel through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the gates of heaven."
