The case for Joe Biden

Eric Thompson, Letter Author

Why does Biden need to be elected? For me, it is simple. Biden represents the best opportunity to restore America’s respectability on the global stage and inject morality back into our society. Over the past four years, we have seen an uptick in racial unrest and overall racism not seen in generations that has been allowed by President Trump. To think that Trump is the “Christian” President that has been “Ordained by God” according to evangelical Christian leaders sickens me. One must look no further than Trump’s personal character to see that he is not Christian As a Christian first and a ELCA Lutheran second, I cannot let these things just slide by. I don’t care who you are racially, spiritually, or your preferred gender, I am supposed to love you for who you are, not who you should be. Trump to me does not exemplify this and needs to be voted out. I think that Biden will be a much more honest and decent President and will instill a sense of morality that has been sorely absent over the past four years.
