In response to Jack Werner (Point of View, June 9): Hypocrisy has no limits. It resides within both political parties. I object to the notion that somehow only the Republican Party needs cleansing. After reading Werner's comments, I came away feeling he requires politicians and voters to separate their beliefs and morals from public policy. We've slid down that slippery slope of moral relativism for decades, eliminating God and moral judgment from things we do in public. The Democratic Party's mantra of “choice” on abortion and women's rights has done great damage to women.
The Founders were only concerned about the state sanctioning a national religion. This great nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. Shall we throw out the founding principles? Can we not live out our moral principles in public life? I refuse to leave my moral principles at the door! That's exactly what's gotten this nation to the edge of the cliff where we now stand.
