Thursday letters: More government isn’t solution

June 19, 2014 

SC State House


— After reading George Warren’s June 1 letter (“S.C. doesn’t care about children), the only thing “pathetic” is his attempt to convince readers that higher taxes and bigger government is the solution to South Carolina’s neglected children and overcrowded prisons.

He even suggested that our problems have something to do with “all the Bible-thumping Christians in our state.”

Somehow unmarried couples who choose to raise families without God, the Bible or church get a free pass. How convenient.
