Dear Editor,

Regarding the faith-based column "Christian Worldview Revisited,” Pastor Link abuses his privilege. This is not the place to advance political views disguised as the teachings of the Bible. As an independent voter, I am highly in favor of some principles of the Republican party and likewise am in favor of some of the principles of the Democratic party (hence my self-proclaimed independence). While smaller government is a good thing, it has never been bigger than it was from 2000 to 2008 (it has actually shrunk since 2008). And as for socialism being such a great evil, I hope that Pastor Link is true to his belief and turns his Medicare card in and declines his Social Security checks if he is old enough to enjoy these "socialist benefits.”

As the editor of the Blanco News, I can only assume that you didn't read the article or it wouldn't have found its way onto the Faith pages. Pastor Link should keep his political beliefs to himself and concentrate on extending the Golden Rule to his flock, for what he wrote in his persona as a clergyman wasn't much about God's word.
