Regarding the recent letter from Bill Sierichs, your readership should be made aware of Sierichs’ virulently anti-Christian views. He believes Christianity is the cause of all totalitarianism.

This opinion is so ludicrous it is not worthy of comment!

As George Harris and Michael Sellen wrote weeks ago in replies to a Sierichs diatribe, he slanders all conservatives, and he is woefully ignorant of U.S. history. The Declaration is our most basic founding document. It states that our natural rights are from God and cannot be given or taken away. The beginning states “we are endowed by a Creator,” and it ends “with a firm reliance on Divine Providence.”

I just read a brief biography of the famous Sicilian director Frank Capra (“It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” etc.), who came to the United States at an early age and quickly realized that America was a country where an enlightened understanding of “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” has given us our liberty and not from government as Sierichs and all secular-progressives want us to believe.
