I read a letter to the editor from a Mary Samide supporter who stated that my views against public housing were “unchristian.” Big surprise. Tracy Jemison and Mary Samide are two of the main reasons we have had such an influx in Section 8 housing here in Geauga County. And Jemison and Samide wholeheartedly supported our latest welfare housing project in Middlefield, the Casa Lucia.
What about respecting our nations sovereign laws? Is it not “unchristian” to violate the sovereign laws of our country? It is not “unchristian” to steal, misuse and abuse our tax dollars?
I feel that it is “unchristian” to give illegal aliens who have NEVER paid into social security, three times the amount of the social security that any one of us who have paid into the system all of our lives will ever receive. And I certainly feel that it is “unchristian” to give housing to career welfare recipients, generational Section 8 non-contributors, drug dealers and ex-cons at the expense of the hardworking, responsible and family-oriented taxpayers.
And I do not personally care how these religious fanatics want to spend their own money, but everyone should care when they steal and pander our tax dollars under the guise of Christianity.
Many horrible things have been done recently and throughout history in the name of “Christianity”.

Wow.... have you nailed it Judy!
Ever since the beginning of time there has always been "hypocrisy" amongst christians.
GOD'S word in the Bible is distorted, twisted, and watered down regularly, as is the Constitution. Religious fanatics go around spewing these distortions all the time.
People, the worst offenders being lawyers, have trouble accepting the plain and simple wording in the Bible and he Constitution. The wording in these publications is not some kind of complex code that only lawyers or pastors can decipher.... that would make them unworthy of serious consideration. The wording in them is plain and simple.... it says what it says. It is lawyers and religious leaders that lead us to believe it is too complicated for our simple minds, for the purposes of control and money. Why would publications of this grave importance be given to us, knowingly, that we would not be able to understand them. That does not make any sense, even to an imbecile.
The people who wrote that your views against public housing were “unchristian" are not well informed and sound like extremists.
Nowhere in the Bible does it say we are to give homes away to people in areas they can't afford because "they deserve to live there too".... or that anyone "deserves" anything.
I'm no biblical expert, but I do know a few things it says:
For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat." 2 Thessalonians 3:10
Notice that it doesn't say that those who CAN NOT work should not eat.
Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. Proverbs 10:4
How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest -- and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. Proverbs 6:9-11
Government "welfare" and "subsidised housing" in areas where these people cannot afford to live on their own IS NOT BIBLICAL.
I'm with you Judy.... I am strongly against gov. subsidised housing in Geauga County. This will eventually ruin Geauga. Mary Samide and Traci Jemison have already done irreparable damage to Geauga.
