The letter writer states he is left-handed, so he asks, facetiously, where are his civil rights? Left-handed people at one time were commonly discriminated against. In fact, it was considered immoral or evil, according to the religious beliefs of hundreds of years ago, to be left-handed, just like homosexuality is with many today!
Finally, a different letter to the editor states our Constitution recognizes the deity of the Christian Bible. No, it doesn’t. No mention of the Bible, the Christian God or Christianity in general in the Constitution. In fact, many Christians of that time opposed the Constitution because it explicitly made no mention of these things. The Constitution is an Enlightenment document based on reason and free-thought, not based on the Bible.
We welcome “Letters to the Editor” on any topic of general interest. The Kokomo Tribune reserves the right to edit all letters for grammar, brevity, good taste and libel. Letters of 250 words or fewer are preferred. All letters must be signed with a full name, address of the author and a daytime telephone number so authorship can be verified.
