Huckabee has gone too far
Re “Here come the powerful victims,” Opinion, May 31
Mike Huckabee says Christianity is under attack and that Christians could be jailed. This is not so. Non-Christians do not, as a rule, want to put Christians in jail; they just want some elbow room at the table of freedom.
The government is not making laws limiting the practice of Christianity. There is progress in making our society a little more democratic; rights granted to us are finally being given to all Americans. Acceptance and tolerance are things Christians preach so often — we are to do for all our neighbors as we would do for ourselves.
On a long flight recently, the plane’s lavatory was the smallest I had ever used. I felt victimized. Later I read about French women sent to Nazi concentration camps; their “toilet” was a muddy trench filled with excrement. I thought to myself, “Never mind.”
Put it in perspective, Governor.
