To the editor:
Being a martyr, I look forward to the regular whippings from the triumvirate of Thomas/Krauthammer/Will. As a bonus, the Journal-World also provides us with that fine voice from neighboring Baldwin City, just in case any “Lawrencians” should start to feel good about themselves! It’s rewarding to be reminded by the likes of Cal Thomas that as a Democrat, my agenda is not only liberal, it is secular. I gather that it’s not possible to be “religious” (read: Christian) and Democrat at the same time, for such lofty status is evidently reserved for conservative Republicans — or so it seems. The evil “media” (of which the above-named persons are thus NOT a part) misses the point on “religion,” and Mr. Thomas (Journal-World, May 25) suggests that all its members should be required to take “advanced religion courses” (read: advanced Christianity courses).
It’s comforting indeed to be whipped and scolded and lambasted several times each week, especially when these punishments include lessons in true religion. I, for one, am delighted with the positive, insightful, open-minded columns offered by these folks. They are far better, after all, than the uncompromising politicians about whom they frequently write. Perhaps, after I complete that advanced course in religion, I can become as good and worthy as Cal/Charles/George. Perhaps.
