Dog touched nerve

My last letter, “Leave us alone,” (Jan. 5) apparently touched a nerve with some of your readers, as I mentioned my 110-pound Doberman when stating the atheists should butt out of our business regarding the Ten Commandments monument at Valley High School.

I don't need my dog. I am strong enough to stand for what I believe without her at my side. To accuse me of intimidation proves several of your letter writers have taken my words out of context.

One letter, “Cut out the hatred” (Jan. 13), went too far. This missive was far more confrontational and invective-laced than anything I authored. The writer and others took what was essentially a “sound bite” and mangled it until it was unrecognizable.

I am sick and tired of people twisting passages from the Bible to fit their own purposes.

I am neither disdainful nor contemptuous, but I do not suffer fools!

The writers who criticized me reek of the very intolerance of which they speak.
