Florida woman speaks up for respect in politics

I give Meredith Schultz credit for her clear thinking and important message in her letter to the editor printed yesterday in the NY Times. Ms Schultz, from Boca Raton Florida, speaks out for the need for respect for a future president's constituency and for "loving our neighbors." The letter is included with three other letters responding to a November 10 front page story, "Christian Right Failed to Sway Voters on Issues." Read her letter HERE.

I find it amazing that the party that has so many "strict constructionists" of the Constitution also includes many who ignore Article VI:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
