Religious Rights

August 08, 1994

Referring to the Times article, "GOP: Moderate Republicans Warn of Religious Right Takeover" (July 28). It is terrifying to read such statements as "The 1992 GOP platform called for a 'human rights amendment' to the Constitution, outlawing abortion in all circumstances." And "the Texas GOP convention, where delegates carried signs saying, 'A vote for our candidate is a vote for God." It seems that some Republicans hide behind the cloak of religion and moral values for what it can do for them among the voters. It's a shame that people like Bob Dole do not have the courage to put principles before politics.

I also believe a clarification should be made for Republican leaders who claim that Democrats attack religion. What they attack is intolerance and those who label themselves Christians but breed hate and fear of anyone who does not believe as they do. These people obviously have forgotten that this country was founded on religious rights and the right to believe as we choose to believe.
