A recent letter writer decried what he sees as our dangerous declining morality and our eventually being punished by no other than God almighty.
Well sir, I will tell you what I believe is immoral: people living in poverty in this rich nation is immoral. Greed by our wealthy upper-class is immoral, as they still obtain their wealth from the backs of the poor and the middle class. Turning your back on children after they have been born is immoral. The wealthy not contributing to their country by avoiding taxes is immoral. Waging war is immoral because wars are fought on the basis of achieving power over others. Insisting on owning guns of mass destruction is immoral, as is using these guns to threaten and bully your community. Insisting that there is only one truth is immoral. And if someone is elected by the majority of the people, it is right that they assume their elected position. That is democracy.
Our founding fathers were humanists; if they were alive today, they would be called socialists.
The writer sounds like he would be more comfortable living in a religiously controlled dictatorship. He hopefully will never find that in this country.
