Letter: Founding principles

February 28, 2014


To the editor:

I would like to reassure Richard Smith for his legislative “Bill reaction nonsense” ten-point consideration in the Feb. 24 Public Forum, specifically No. 10: “Does our creator have rights? Surely those are important to take into consideration.”

I have to confess I don’t have any idea. I have always suspected that with an occasional assist from Gabriel, that he or she was perfectly capable of taking care of business.

What I worry about is the self-evident truths enumerated in our 1776 Declaration of Independence, “that all men are created equal … with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

What does concern me are those bully-minded individuals who suffer the conceit that they have been anointed to carry out the creator’s will, as manifested by swastika armbands and plate glass breaking, bedsheet headdresses and front yard cross burning, neon hate signs at wedding and funerals, etc. All are big bumps on the road for the passing parade and not quite what the creator may have had in mind, but certainly contrary to our founding principles.

This reminds me of when someone asked Father at our church who is going to go to hell. When God gives me the list, he replied, I will post it so we can all know.

If there were such a list, I suspect at the bottom you would find, subject to revisement without notice.
