Change requires adjustments in protocol and can be very disturbing and sometimes painful, but the status quo is destructive of innovation, creativity and recognition of possibilities that exist in the immediate neighborhood. Change will also create animosity, resentment and a fight to maintain the comforts of the existing status. The fight to maintain stasis is tantamount to a fight for slow demise and eventual death.
People of Ruston, I hope you enjoyed, as I did, the music of John Barker, Anne Gaushell and Carlie Toliver at the Lincoln Parish Library on Friday, July 19, 2013. It was a wonderful performance. What a joy it is to have such talent in Ruston, La.
It was with great interest that I read Mrs. Mary Carol Vidrine’s letter to the Editor, which more than implied that we should not worry about changing laws, especially in regard to current gun laws.
I totally agree with her concept that society must “change our hearts” to embrace a culture of life, and not of death, but I am confused a bit by her logic.
The first question I would ask is, “Is Christianity tilted toward one particular political party or another?” No, it is not. God is not a Democrat. Nor is He a Republican. Nor is He a Libertarian, or any other political label we can come up with.
