U.S. is a land of many religions that do not share common beliefs

I can’t help but comment on Lori Nuzzolillo’s March 2 letter, “President Bush is correct …”

As almost every one of your paragraphs begins with the word “I,” it is clear that you believe what you wrote, yet this does not make it fact.

The fact is, the United States of America is a country founded on the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and that means freedom of speech, which you have been allowed, and freedom of religion, which you seem not to want to allow.

Many religions represented in the United States do not share the beliefs of your religion. But according to you, people who do not share your beliefs should still follow the rules of your religion?

You wrote, “I think many people have a difficult time accepting the fact that there will be definitive consequences to their actions in a spiritual realm.”

I think you are having a difficult time understanding that not all citizens in the U.S. share your beliefs.

The president of the United States has a responsibility to all of us as U.S. citizens and if he chooses to support this amendment, he should not base his argument on religious beliefs.
