Clarifying previous letter

-A A +A

Let me correct the interpretation of my letter to the editor, “From God to Government,” by Mr. Deemer.

First, I agree with the majority of his comment. My point is not that faith and government are mutually exclusive, but that as a society moves away from the moral values of traditional religions, it invariably leads to more government. That’s exactly what I see happening in this country today, and the upcoming election provides an opportunity to change that.

As an example, when government violates its own Constitution, and thereby suppresses the religious freedoms of Catholics and others of faith, it’s time for a change.
