Letter to the Editor
Friday, Dec. 28, 2012, 8:58 p.m.

The controversy regarding the Ten Commandments presents a golden opportunity for our city to be a beacon of light in a dark world of self-destructive liberalism. I love Connellsville.

I lived in the North End neighborhood as a kid, but my best buddy, Danny Luczak, and I played all around town — South Side, East Side, West Side.

The controversy is a microcosm of the macrocosmic end toward which our nation is headed under the liberal/socialist policies of the Obama regime.

Religious freedom, under our Constitution, already has been trashed by his mandate that requires Catholic and other institutions to provide for abortions or be fined and tracked down by the Internal Revenue Service.

Prior to convening for its convention in Charlotte, N.C., the Democratic National Committee intelligentsia decided to take God out of the party platform. Concern about repercussions forced a vote by the delegates. It took three tries in order to get enough votes to put God back in. The result was met with resounding boos from the floor of the convention hall.

Removing God is as old as our human nature, when the first “liberal” entered the Garden of Eden, where economic and social conditions were perfect and suggested that God's law was destroying freedom.

Thus was born the false theory that freedom means the absence of law and that liberty means license.

It remains the fatal flaw of liberalism to this day — a delusional belief that man is innately noble and that through education and evolution can become a god, without God.
