In answer to Sherwood Sage’s Nov. 13 letter to the editor regarding the values of Trump voters: He writes that despite Trump’s character, he lauds him for “voting for” many of the values of the faith community, i.e. Biblical marriage between one man and one woman, opposition to abortion and murdering children after they are born.
Once again, the Democratic party has not “been intolerant and hostile to those values.” What we are hostile and intolerant of are those who force their values onto the rest of us. Don’t like abortion? Don’t have one. Don’t like gay marriage? Don’t marry a person of the same gender. Nobody is going to force anyone to live according to our values, the way they would force us to live by theirs. As for murdering children after they’re born, that’s a big fat lie, brought to you by the same people who brought you the Spanish Inquisition, Salem witch trials, demon sperm and alien DNA.
