I was intrigued by the letter from Fred Shick in the Jan. 2-3 edition of the L-V. Of particular interest, as I had not heard or read of it elsewhere, was Shick’s claim that “they are using Jesus to fight Trump on the wall.” I believe Shick was referring to Democrats as “they.”

This assertion raises many questions for me: does Jesus have a vote in the House or the Senate to fight against Trump’s wall; is Jesus aware that “they” are using him; is Jesus willingly cooperating with the Democrats (would that be collusion?); how, specifically are the Democrats using Jesus?

As I can find no clear explanation of how this is happening, I seriously invite Shick to explain how Jesus is being used, whether he is OK with being used, and if not, why does he not fight back — maybe smite down the Dems? Maybe he is OK with being used and is, himself, also opposed to the wall. Apparently Shick knows. Maybe he will share his insights (delusions).
