Just a note on the topic of political correctness

To the Budgeteer:

The issue of political correctness is a funny thing.

One cannot have a sense of humor because it offends someone else?

Or is it that it may smack of something that may be 1) true, 2) insightful, 3) pertinent, 4) impertinent, 5) all of the above and 6) more than the above?

Hell in a hand basket

To the Budgeteer:

Your editorial title "Our Thoughts are With the 148th" lacks any real meaning. This country is going to hell in a hand basket, as the phrase goes. Personally, and that of my family, our prayers are with the 148th.

What's the matter, don't want to offend anyone? Well, you offended me and I would think many other Christians. Thoughts mean nothing, prayers do. Have some backbone, say what you most likely mean. If you don't mean prayers, don't bother to say anything. I will recommend that next year our church does not advertise in your paper for the Christmas season.

Jesus and unborn children are nothing to be afraid of

To the Budgeteer:

Why are Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, the liberal media and so many politicians afraid of a baby in a manger or in their mothers' wombs?

Is it a disease? Just wondering.
