Letter: Ray skewed the facts

0

Editor,

Andy Ray’s reference to Senator Delph as a “bum,” a “big embarrassment,” a “wingnut,” and to his opposition to marriage equality on religious grounds as “just plain stupid” strikes me as the kind of personal attack that has turned our political landscape into a minefield. Further, he skews facts in an attempt to drive home his point, suggesting that the reprimand of the senator’s party was due to his religious opposition to a party position on marriage. I have known Senator Delph for many years and I am confident of his personal character and principled approach to life in general and politics in particular. Disagreement on issues should always be welcome, even when positions on both sides are religiously based. This is what life in a pluralistic society should encourage. Even if I disagreed with Senator Delph on certain issues, I would not have to “hold my nose” when I cast my vote for him.
