2017 Letters to the editor stock

I read very thoroughly the March 13 letter on “Trump’s speech shows why evangelicals like him.”

I found myself saying our president of the recent National Prayer Breakfast who so articulated Jude’s Christian prayers is the same person who has so infamously failed to respect women, who has put forth a budget that decreases assistance to the poor, who signed a tax law that favors the 1 percent of our country and corporations that already get tremendous tax breaks, who fails to love his neighbor as himself — every neighbor including the immigrant, the refugee, the undocumented DACA who is our neighbor.

We are a country of immigrants. I am a proud Catholic who follows Judeo-Christian principle as Jesus taught us, not as the evangelical preach.

Sr. Kathleen Quinn, East Chicago
