Last week a News letter-writer was “Looking forward to the end of Roe v. Wade,” cheering for “a true conservative to the Supreme Court.”
He wrote, “I believe what it says in the Declaration of Independence, which states that we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights.”
Contrary to common belief, not everything in the Declaration is true.
All men (please update to include women and children) are not created equal. Some have severe problems from birth – physical or mental (for instance, hundreds of AIDS babies are warehoused in hospitals).
And sadly, many more are born to life as unwanted children and all the depredations that entails.
Your letter-writer includes the information that he is a “grand knight of the St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus.” I just looked to confirm that, of course, this organization is men only.
Well, if he is headed for self-righteous heaven, I’m glad to be going, as a non-religious human, in the opposite direction.
