July 5, 2013: Letters to the editor


Tipton deserves better and has much more potential than taking the bait of a questionable and divisive industry.

Nathan D. Salsbery


What if every church marched on D.C.?

“We may be pro-life, but we are not being Christian ...,” T. Russell Hunter said for Abolish Human Abortion.

We are like the parable of the Good Samaritan. We are like those passing on the other side of the road, minding our own business, tending to the affairs of life.

Have we ever considered the church in Nazi Germany? Attending church every week, worshipping the Lord, attending to their daily lives while millions of Jews were being slaughtered in their backyard.

Wake up, church. Come out of your slumber!

So what would it take to get every church in America to shut their doors this Sunday and storm the gates of Hell — Washington, D.C. — and make our stand against the slaughter of innocent children once and for all? We could put an end to this abomination this Sunday!

It is time for us to put the responsibility where it belongs. We have left it up to lawyers and politicians, and they have failed miserably.

Michael J. Amatuzzo


A false perceptionof popular opinion

From reading the paper, one might think the majority of Tipton residents are against windmills making electricity in our community. I challenge that argument.

When people are opposed to an idea, they become vocal, which is certainly their right. But that doesn’t mean the majority are against the idea, just the ones who are making their wishes known.

I read the online survey on Survey Monkey, which opponents of windmills cite as support for their position. There were 123 respondents to the survey, which represents 0.007 percent of Tipton’s population.

One of the questions is: “In your opinion, what are the five best things about Tipton County?” Six people said the best thing about Tipton County is no wind farms.
