It seems from her April 7 letter, “We need law’s protection from religious despots,” that Terry Libby is against anyone freely exercising their religious beliefs as stated in the U.S. Constitution.

The last thing we need in this country is more laws; let’s start by enforcing and following the laws we already have in this country.

A business started by an individual has the right to follow the owner’s religious conscience.

I also would love for Libby to tell the name of one Christian charity that has ever forced a person to sign a way their religious freedom in order to get the help they need from that organization. How would someone even do that?

The solution to all of this is to take all benefits out of employment. If we all had private health insurance similar to buying car insurance, none of this would be an issue.
