LETTER: Those without sin should cast the first stone about Trump’s comments

Lyndon B. Johnson was deragotory about minorities but signed into law the Civil Rights Act. Should he not have been president?

Jesus said regarding the woman condemned to death by stoning for adultery: “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

Nobody cast a stone.

So why stone Trump over his sexually explicit derogatory statement about women in 2005?

I’m sure there are no Democratic men who have not said the same sort of thing in certain company, sure, so they should not be elected president either.

I myself have said similar things in certain company, yet I respect women and women’s rights.

Women, of course, have said similar things about men in certain company.

President Lyndon B. Johnson did things worse than Trump.

Yet Johnson championed civil rights for women and minorities by signing into law the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

But should he also not have been president because he had affairs and did worse things than Trump?

“Oh, but we are much more condemnatory now of such acts or derogatory comments, and rightly so.”

Really? In that case, just about nobody should be elected president.
