Where are the protesters?

Ever since George Zimmerman was found not guilty, there have been protesters, some rioting and people screaming about race all over this country. My question is, I’ve read and seen on the news of blacks killing whites, but in those cases I have never heard of white people protesting, rioting or screaming about race. Why not?

I know we live in a country now where the killings of a white, black or person of any other race doesn’t mean a thing any more. But I would like to know where the protesters are when someone besides a black person is killed.

Equal justice? I don’t think so.

North Carolina’s decline

In response to Chris Verner’s July 14 column “A state in decline, indeed”:

A good column — if the New York Times editorial had been written by the New York government, by those that represent their state, but it wasn’t. It was written by the N.Y. Times, a newspaper that reports on state and national issues. It didn’t create the story about the decline of our state government; our legislature created it. The Times just reported it.

Among the saints

I read with interest the July 6 article “Pope Francis proclaims John Paul II, John XXIII as new saints.”

My King James Bible of 1611 declares in Romans 1:6-7: “Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ: To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints ...”

And again in I Corinthians 1:2, my Bible says: “Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our lord, both their’s and our’s.”

Why, I became a saint over 39 years ago, without the approval of any mere man, when I trusted Jesus Christ as my savior at age 18!
