Letter to the editor: Letter-writer wrong on priest’s ‘hero’

Regarding John Phil Moximchalk’s letter “How can a priest worship Trump?” (Sept. 4,
TribLIVE): I read my letter concerning Democrat-socialists several times. I never mentioned President Trump in my warning to the Democrats of a cancer invading their party. They are a cancer that needs to be removed from the party STAT.

Donald Trump is not my hero; he is my president. I voted for Trump because I knew Hillary Clinton was as crooked as we were being told. My choice was wise; the president is doing a great job in running our great country. The United States is finally in the hands of a nonpolitical businessman and not a politician.

My hero is Jesus Christ. He is also my boss, as I work in the Orthodox Catholic Church.

You bring up the tragedy of the evil priests molesting children. Those evil men that you seem to hate very much will be taken care of by my hero and the judge of all of us, Christ himself.

I voice my opinion often, and I know people will disagree with me, but I want them to know that they should know what I said and what they disagree with.

Jesus knows everything that I opine on, and I try to be firm and truthful because it is his opinion I worry about.

God bless you and God bless America.

The Rev. Tony Joseph

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
