Interesting Letter to the Editor
From the Times:
For a long time in life I never quite knew where I fit in. Let's review. White male Christian, been married to the same woman for 25 years, two children and a dog, own a gun and like to go hunting. I'm not gay so what gay people do is not my business. I pay taxes and I live in a civilized society funding the general welfare is not something I have a problem with.I think there are thousands of people who have always considered themselves "conservative" who are wondering just what the hell has happened since this gang of faux-Christian thugs and neocons hijacked the movement and the country.
If stateless terrorists attack the country I live in, the military I fund should hunt them down. The country that funded the attack should be held accountable.
Last but not least: If I have a problem with a medical procedure because of my spiritual belief, I don't do it.
When a society starts to use the Bible as a guide to implement and make law the outcome is disaster. The devil will quote scripture to his benefit, and the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I think being conservative is not a bad thing. I wish everybody that claims to be one would remember what being conservative means.
The Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld gang is no more traditional conservatives than I am. They are truly radical in their desire to change this country into something that I believe no one, not even conservatives, would like it to become.
