Excuse me, Dr. Banks, we “traditionalists” are feeding and caring for those less fortunate than we

Our church is a leader in generosity using our money, our personal taxes (federal, state and local) include a significant portion for care of others, and many of us do even more through civic organizations like the Salvation Army, Star of Hope, etc ad nauseum. I deeply resent your insinuation that traditionalists like me care not for others.
.
We also care about the moral fabric of our country which unravels a little more every day. We are shocked that common sense standards like only men in mens rooms and only women in women’s rooms are being challenged in court and by elected officials. We who are fathers of daughters are especially angry at the lack of caring by some in power for the safety of our little girls.
.
And, while we really don’t care what people do in their bedrooms, back seats or hot tubs, we will not accept those folks as our moral leaders. A “trans” leading MYF or preaching to our youth? You’re kidding, right?
.
We old traditionalists are multi-tasking masters; we can help those less fortunate with dazzling generosity even while condemning the moral degradation which runs rampant via today’s liberalism. And still have time for golf!

     “I’m sad in 2019 that Jews and African Americans are united by having been slaughtered in their houses of worship in the United States of America. We share many bonds and, unfortunately, this is one of them.”

     –Beth Kissileff Perlman, wife of Rabbi Jonathan Perlman of New Light Congregation at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, quoted in the Charleston Post and Courier. New Light members shared an MLK Day service with Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C.
