Letter to the editor: Religious rights being trashed

We’re living in an America unrecognizable to the Founding Fathers, an America firmly in the grip of tyranny where the constitutional freedom of religion rights of people of faith are summarily trashed under force of unjust law to the extent that their livelihood and lives are destroyed at the whim of those who demand that any opposition to their morally bankrupt agenda must not stand.

We’re talking about unalienable, God-given rights per the Declaration of Independence that no man can take away, rights secured by the blood of our fallen, as nowhere in the Constitution is it found that people of faith must check that faith at the door upon entering public life.

No tyrannical edict of any type — executive, legislative, judicial — trumps the laws of nature, and of nature’s God, the obedience of which deemed necessary by the founders to promote the common good necessary for America’s survival, which is a seminal truth understood by people of faith who have a right to live by it without fear of persecution.

Responsible parents justly discriminate between right and wrong behavior all the time; otherwise they cease being responsible.

Similarly, responsible states must do the same for the sake of the common good.

A civilized society must justly “discriminate” in favor of health over disease, right over wrong, moral over immoral, discriminate use of sexuality over indiscriminate sexual expression.

The death and dying statistics speak to the consequences of nondiscrimination in this context.
