Herndon an example of why Republicans lost

-A A +A

To the editor:
Sports editor John Herndon’s recent column (for the most part it resembles the recent Republican platform wrapped in biblical quotes) is a prime example as to why the Republicans experienced a resounding national defeat, and why religion should never be part of the publicly funded education system or the government.
If being a Christian is defined by supporting the extreme right wing policies of intolerance, sexism and racism, Buddhism looks pretty good to me.
I do however hope the conservative right wing continues its outdated and reprehensible talking points, as it will most likely ensure that no Republican will sit in the White House for the next 20 years.
