Bob Rendar's letter “Unconstitutional ploy” (April 5 and TribLIVE.com) regarding state Rep. Tim Krieger's commonsense proposal to prevent parties seeking to remove displays of the Ten Commandments from doing so anonymously is a typical product of the so-called “tolerant” progressive left.

Rather than argue the issue, progressives seek to denigrate their opponents personally.

Mr. Rendar does so by suggesting that Rep. Krieger needs to stop working to protect the Ten Commandments and instead “appear to be someone who lives by them.”

Thankfully, most people in Western Pennsylvania overwhelmingly reject Rendar's position. In a recent KQV/Trib poll, 99 percent of those responding agreed with Krieger's stand.
