The last refuge


This is in reply to the person who wrote in one of his letters of opinion that the President hates all Christians: Quite honestly, you remind me of the woman who stated that Mr. Obama was an Arab during one of John McCain’s town hall rallies when he was campaigning for president.

John McCain took the microphone away from the woman and said, “No ma’am he is not; he is a decent family man who I happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues, and that is what this campaign is all about.”

As far as using freedom of speech as a cloak to hide behind in making false accusations, you would do well to remember the words of Samuel Johnson: “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.”

Postscript: I also feel the President has been a disappointment. However, making false accusations without any justifiable evidence is a road I will not lower myself to travel on.
