Thank you for your editorial in support of the Washington National Cathedral’s rebuke of President Donald Trump. Episcopalians, as well as Christians of all denominations and people of all faiths, must rebuke his hateful rhetoric and behavior. Trump is the George Wallace — the segregationalist governor of Alabama — of our time, only in a much more powerful office.

Silence is complicity.

I do not understand why the Christian Right continues to support him. Everything about him is the antithesis of Christianity.

Silence is complicity.

With hope in Christ,

Lee Troutman Cory, an Episcopalian, Louisville, KY

Cheering on National Cathedral

Thank you for writing, with your National Cathedral editorial, what so many of us are asking about Trump — and also asking about Republican elected leaders, Evangelicals and others who still support him. Please keep it up with editorials like this.

What can be done about Fox News and the lies of their commentators? Can’t they be outed and ridiculed on national media coverage?

Republicans to blame for the worst American states

Given all the recent discussion by President Donald Trump and others about the worst American cities to live in, I have wondered what are the worst states to live in. Well, lo and behold, it turns out that nine of the 10 worst states to live in are strongly supportive of Trump and the Republican party.

The states often ranked as the worst to live in are Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, New Mexico, South Carolina, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Alaska. Most if not all have Republican governors and are represented in Washington by Republican senators.

It would appear that Republicans need to improve the living conditions in states they control and Democrats definitely need to fix the problems existing in many large cities.
