Did two Chicago Tribune opinion columnists finally give the vital clues necessary to figure out who is responsible for spreading hatred rather than unity in the USA?

The Chicago Tribune articles titled:

Religion, Politics and Mark Curran contained this statement.

“Since 2007, there has been a remarkably sharp trend away from religion,”

Biden Closing in on Unity: Trump with Fury and Hate, contained this statement.

“He (Pope Francis) goes on to say that politics is something more noble than posturing, marketing and media spin. ‘These sow nothing but division, conflict and a bleak cynicism.’ 

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient proverb to discern about the question: who is responsible for spreading hate.

King Solomon

As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. (Proverb 27:19)

Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. (proverb 26:20)

What’s My Point?

I read the Chicago Tribune every morning and believe both of these columnists have been bias toward President Trump from day one of his term.

My point is, as the above proverb gives advice for a person to look into a water or mirror and reflect what has been in their heart.

Both of these columnists have been lighting a fire by using news media to spread hatred of President Trump and his policies since day one of his election, in my opinion.

In My Opinion

In my blog post today titled: Voters Vexations? contained this statement.

“The truth is most voters rely on news media information which depends not on education, but on choices made by media owners’ guidance, 

In other words, perhaps the reason for the hatred and lack of unity may be the result of both the decrease of religion in the USA.

Perhaps hatred is being initiated because the media bias and/or gossip being reported in the hearts of news columnists has been fueling the sad news we read every day in the news because of this following reason, in my opinion.

Perhaps religion is waning because Most parents can no longer afford to send their children to private religious schools and the result is religion is waning.

And perhaps that is the reason our Nation is becoming less unified and the results of waning religious values is what is vexing voters and fueling the acts of hatred I read being reported in the Chicago Tribune every day.

Mark Twain made this profound comment about news media

“if you don’t read the newspaper, you are uninformed; if you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed.”

You Decide

Would you agree with the statement made by the vexed comment?

“The more I read about America and the beliefs and values of Americans, the more I realize just how screwed up the country is,,,,,,,. 

Would you agree that perhaps the reason why the comment was made should be blamed on religion, or the news media?

Would you agree that regardless of who wins the 2020 election, unity will never be achieved without the core religious belief of forgiveness in the mix to achieve unity? The same intention Abraham Lincoln used to remedy on the losing side of the Civil War?

Is this post a Bingo answer to the Conundrum question, or more foolish gossip to vex voters?

Regards and goodwill blogging
