‘Old-thinking people’ can be young too, and are setting country back


Letter to the Editor

To the editor:

I am writing in response to the letter in the Aug. 1 edition of The Call by Gerogeanne Gass. Kudos, Georgeanne. You said it perfectly.

Old-thinking people are the bane of our society, no matter your age. I am almost 70, and I know young people in their 20s who think like they are from the Dark Ages.

It is no wonder people in Missouri and most of the Midwest are not progressing (making progress, moving forward). Progressive thought is all but banned.

This government is taking everything away, including our freedoms which we have fought so hard to win and keep. Women have been free to make choices about their lives and their health care since we won Roe v. Wade.

Planned Parenthood not only provides abortion to less than 1 percent of their clients, but over 99 percent of their clients go there for routine health care, birth control, mammograms and other health needs.

Old-thinking people, hear this: Stop judging others and stop trying to control the lives of other people. After all, Jesus said to love one another. Not love one another except for those you don’t agree with or like.
