Let’s talk about righteousness

By From page A7 | March 22, 2013

EDITOR:

Brian Waldsmith’s letter labels the “Wake Up” letter writer and all follow-ons as “fringe” and “misinformed extremists,” who build a “theory of conspiracy” and lend a “veneer of legitimacy to absurd paranoia.”

My wise father says you must choose between belief in God or belief in Government (yes, capital G). I disagree, and stand firmly behind my libertarian philosophy, which is secular, individualist, and most importantantly, prays for a much smaller government (at all levels). Mr. Waldsmith, from my reading, has chosen the God of Government.

Despite our philosophical differences, I’d like to wholeheartedly concur with the last phrase of Mr. Waldsmith’s last (incomplete) sentence: “…delusions of righteousness.”
