To the editor:
This world has a heavy surplus of Muslims, Christians and Jews who feel that their particular faith has an exclusive franchise on heaven. That of itself is not a problem as long as it remains as an element of faith.
The difficulty comes when faith becomes a ruling guide in government such as I am now witnessing within my Republican Party, where God has been telling all too many men that they are destined to run for president where they can bring their strong morals to rule us into becoming a better people. Religion is a toxic contaminant within government just as government is a toxic contaminant within religion. Freedom of religion and separation of government and religion are the hallmarks of the better world which we all should be seeking.
