To the editor:
While I was waiting the other day for an appointment, I picked up a copy of the Journal-World and started thumbing through the various sections, articles, commentaries and "letters to the editor." I really don't know why I was so "taken back" by the extremely liberal slant, or should I say bias, since I have been a consistent reader of the Journal-World since first learning to read 50 years ago.
I quit subscribing in 1999 because I never had time to read the paper when I came home from work. Now I would not choose to subscribe because of the Journal-World's failure to be objective and sensitive to the diverse cultures that live in this county. Liberals have always prided themselves on being progressive, open-minded and multiculturally tolerant and affirming.
It ceases to amaze me when I see the diatribes being flailed against those who believe in "intelligent design" or those who simply believe that Darwin's theory of evolution should be taught as it should be - as a "theory." Why become agitated when we question these theories or beliefs? Doesn't higher education emphasize the importance of developing analytical thought processes in our children? Is there fear that some child will believe in God? The true fear should be that we cause a child not to believe in God.
