On Sept. 30, a letter writer said, "If you think the economy is more important than protecting God's laws in our nation, you're in for a rude awakening on Judgment Day!" Which interpretation of God's laws would you have us implement to rule this nation? Yours, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Catholics, Lutherans, Baptists, Protestants, Jehovah Witnesses, just to name a few?

I've seen signs in yards saying, "Christians -- remember the unborn when casting your vote!" To that I reply, "Americans - remember the born when casting your vote," because every child needs parents with good jobs to care for them, every child and family needs health care, every child needs a good education and a chance to go to college with a good job waiting in the future and every child needs to grow up secure in the knowledge that the President will 100 percent sure before he asks them to die in some misguided war.

The writer said Joe Biden is a hypocrite for being against abortion and doing nothing to stop it and that he's a poor example of a Catholic. Maybe as an elected official, he understands the importance of the separation of church and state and that he was elected to defend the rights of all Americans not to further the views of his church.

As an American, I respect your views but I don't want them forced upon me.

I believe a woman has a right to choose, gays should have equal rights, and all Americans should be free to worship without fear and a black man could be a good president.

And as far as Judgement Day goes, if I'm wrong, the writer wouldn't have wanted me for a neighbor anyway.
