A good cause demands noble means. Helping others is an American heritage, but sadly our present day countrymen have fallen for the old Jesuit fallacy that the end justifies the means. We educate our young people with tainted money from the lottery. This makes many poor so that one person can be rich. It fosters greed and covetousness and weakens the moral fiber of our beloved land. Now in the case of the Follies funds are recruited by presenting a “raunchy and risque” show which forbids most of those who are the recipients of these monies from attending. Kate, our young people are watching and they will be the worse for it down the line. Why cater to fallen nature? Why not have a show where everyone can attend and not have to blush at foolish people acting immorally? “Whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report, think on these things” Philippians 4:8.
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
