Who taught them to think like that?

July 31, 2013 

As I sat down with my Bee to do the puzzles, I took a moment to read what the youngsters were saying in the "Question of the Week" (July 25)

What a major disappointment it was when I found two young girls, from religious schools, expressing feelings of animosity and discontent toward our president. One simply said, "Just stop."

Stop what? Five consecutive years of slow and sustainable growth in jobs and national wealth? Stop providing health care for all Americans? Stop pulling our troops out of wars he never started? We cannot debate what we do not know — stop what?

Who taught these young children to call for another person to "renounce being a Christian" and for what reasons? President Barack Obama, although not perfect, is doing what he can to bring this country back from the brink of a total meltdown.
