I have read the letter to the editor by Lorinda Newton entitled, “Easter is a time for more than just bunnies, eggs.”
I am completely opposed to religious or moral views being expressed in our local community paper.
Newton’s letter reads more like a sermon than a letter and is very inappropriate since our community includes atheists, agnostics and people of other faiths and philosophies.
I respect the fact that people have their own ideas of morality and faith, but I believe these ideas are personal and they should not be given a pulpit by our local newspaper.
This same letter writer, Lorinda Newton, wrote a letter in January regarding abortions which I do not share and found to be offensive as well.
What she described as a routine counseling for women seeking abortion is not correct and she promoted a “fear factor” for women seeking abortions.
Does the paper really want to get involved in moral and personal issues?
I would think not.
Please concentrate on important community and government issues rather than someone’s idea of their faith and their morality.
