For years, the Powerine oil refinery in Santa Fe Springs drew heavy fines from air pollution agencies and a litany of complaints from neighbors. Residents said fumes from the 62-year-old plant burned their eyes and caused painful rashes. But since financial problems forced owners to wind down operations three years ago, neighbors say they have enjoyed a respite. That is about to change, some residents and environmentalists warn.

Re "Delegate Angry Gays Left Out of GOP Platform," Aug. 18: As a gay Democrat I have to say that I've never understood the concept of gay Republicans or the Log Cabin Federation. Being gay and a Republican seems to be embracing and supporting the very people who hate you. Something is wrong with Frank Ricchiazzi's thinking when he says "And the only way to make change is from the inside." This is like being Jewish and joining the Nazi party or being black and joining the KKK. The Democrats on the other hand have included lesbians and gay men. My suggestion to Ricchiazzi is to join the Democrats and work from within a party that accepts him as a complete human being worthy of equal rights and protection under the law. Lou Sheldon, Pat Robertson and Pat Buchanan are enemies of my community and the Republican Party not only embraces them and what they stand for, but holds them up as their leaders.

Re "Eastern Exposure" (July 8): It was especially refreshing and satisfying to read an unbiased article on the nudist lifestyle and the efforts of naturists to secure the use and designation of public beaches for nude recreation. Nudists have long been harassed and persecuted by police and right-wing groups. Edwin Meese, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Pat Buchanan, Charles Keating and even U.S. Chief Justice William Rehnquist have denounced nudity as evil in their attempt to dictate their views of morality.

So former Vice President Dan Quayle is concerned about what he sees as bigotry and intolerance directed against conservative Christians (Jan. 10)! When I think back in horror about all of the hatred, bigotry and prejudice that was spewed from the podium during the 1992 Republican Convention by Pat Robertson, Pat Buchanan and Phyllis Schlafly, Quayle's remarks seems downright ludicrous. ROBERT J. KASTANEK Los Angeles Quayle isn't really taking aim at "bigotry" in defending conservative Christians against some mythical attack on their religious beliefs.

It was refreshing to see your article on the religious relativism of Abdol Karim Soroush (Jan. 27), in which this Iranian theologian is quoted as saying that all religious understanding is relative and that no one interpretation is absolute. Such a lesson in religious tolerance and pluralism is not just needed in Iran. In the United States, people like Pat Robertson, Pat Buchanan and Jerry Falwell need to comprehend that they do not possess a monopoly on understanding God's will. Additionally, of course, it would be a great day for the world if the Pope would also adopt Soroush's admonition to abandon religious absolutism.
