A re­turn to val­ues is long over­due

The News (New Glasgow) - - OPINION -

To the ed­i­tor,

I have been read­ing the let­ters to the ed­i­tor about what used to be a lo­cal ra­dio sta­tion.

I am pleased to see that I am not the only one un­happy with it. The lat­est ti­tled “The death of a com­mu­nity ra­dio sta­tion.”

When I walk around Pic­tou County I see more than the death of com­mu­nity ra­dio. Some ex­am­ples are: Mar­itime Steel, the Ma­rine Forge, Tren­ton rail­car plant (which I be­lieve is crim­i­nal to de­mol­ish), J.B. Mac­Don­ald rink, dozens of small busi­nesses and many churches to name a few.

Now North­ern Pulp could join the list. I hope not. And then there is the things gov­ern­ments give away like N.S. Power, the rail road and Pier C. Next to go is our high­ways.

When I was young I could not imag­ine this great coun­try fall­ing. But now I be­lieve since this great coun­try was built on a foun­da­tion of Bi­ble prin­ci­pals by mostly God­fear­ing, Bi­ble-be­liev­ing, hard­work­ing peo­ple. This is a fact I be­lieve any his­to­rian worth their salt will not deny.

Now that the Bi­ble is not al­lowed in schools and the Lord’s Prayer is re­placed with yoga, which is a Hindu prac­tice to yoke with Brahma, which is the main god of some 330,000,000 lesser deities.

Chris­tian pro­grams are banned from the lo­cal ra­dio, and gov­ern­ments are pass­ing laws that make it il­le­gal to tell a sin­ner they are sin­ning. It is fall­ing. A re­turn to the val­ues that built this coun­try would likely slow the fall.
