To the Editor:
I am a white woman and a God-fearing Democrat. I could not sleep well this Easter Sunday. For the past weeks, I have been trying to figure out how Congressman Mark Meadows, R-Cashiers, could vote against the Violence Against Women Act.
The numbers for voting against this don’t add up and the morality of it doesn’t add up either.
I have been to shelters for the abused. I don’t recall seeing anyone with a sign around there neck that said they were gay, straight, red, yellow, black, white or polka dot.
So the best I can tell is that Rep. Meadows and some of his fellow constituents only think it’s wrong to abuse straight white women.
It’s OK to punch a straight or lesbian Indian women.
It’s OK for a gang of white kids to make fun of a Mexican kid.
It’s OK to curse and spit at a black person. Um, I seem to remember that happening to Jewish guy a couple of thousand years ago.
By the way, his sign was a cross.
We are not supposed to abuse another human being, regardless of their sex, race, or belief.
Perhaps Rep. Meadows and the rest of the moral right need to read Matthew chapter 5: 3-10. They might also want to consider Luke chapter 10: 30-37
