To The Daily Sun,
I make no such claim that pagan's are better than Christians, as local GOP crone Steve Earle suggests. Man, I wish I had the time you do to write in every other day. I do want to apologize for using the word pagan though. The people in question were more or less Wiccans. Although I'm sure the word pagan to you, Steve, surely pertains to all people who do not subscribe to your specific religious beliefs.
The main point of my letter was that all Christians are far from saints and that the sacrifices that may have been made by those scattered Wiccan tribes pales in comparison to the overall wicked incidents beseeched by those who call themselves Christians.
Your instant knee-jerk reaction to politicize my letter and jump to linking bad morality with progressives and Democrats just shows what a nitwit you are. Made my wife laugh seeing as how I actually have voted Republican for most of my adult life. I will admit though, lately I've been straying a bit from the party, mostly because I see reflections of short-sighted people such as yourself in it. How they cannot come up with new ideas or separate themselves from the mainstream. How they can't put up a candidate that is original or charismatic. How you go on the attack without even comprehending a thought or idea that differs from your own.
I have to be honest about one thing Steve, I can only go by my own experiences in life. If you've been touched by God and he speaks to you, good for you. I have not. But to call me immoral because I am happy and most comfortable in the loving glow of my family, rather than pledging my soul to a book that has quotes like Psalms 137:9 "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones." If it's because I like to dig for the facts such as the Vatican's orders to purge dioceses of money before they got audited for victims funds, rather than blindly follow like a blind sheep. If it's because I'm smart enough to recognize the hypocrisy of the Roman Catholic church's policy on homosexuality while it clearly runs rampant within its own ranks. Well sir, from me to you, I'd rather be wrong than right.
Shame on you for two things: labeling me when not only are you wrong, but you clearly don't know me; also for making me agree with James Veverka. You're obviously not very good at speaking for any Republican. Please go away before you chase more people from the ranks.
