Letter about editorial

I have to reply to John Torgrimsons column dated July 18th, 2003. To not reply would be an injustice.

Mr. Torgrimsons ignorance comes simply from being one-sided. Little can be done for the self-proclaimed liberal ideologist. Arrogance is defined by dictionary.com as, overbearing pride evidenced by a superior manner toward inferiors. (Dictionary.com 2003). This is obviously apparent as the last statement in his editorial as he refers to Pat Robertson, This guys got a following? Brother!

Pat Robertson and the Christian Broadcasting Network and his Operation Blessing along with Hunger Strike Force (HSF), The HSF hauls millions of pounds of food and disaster relief across the U.S. (cbn.org 2003). I doubt if Mr. Torgrimson can even come close to the charity that Pat Robertson, and his followers offers. Nor can he come close to the number of people that listen to Mr. Robertson versus his pathetic editorial.

Mr. Torgrimson is offended by the fact Pat Robertson asked that the faithful pray that the Supreme Court follow the guidelines set by our founding Fathers. Mr. Robertson states, Because we are under the tyranny of a nonelected oligarchy. Just think, five unelected men and women who serve for life can change the moral fabric of our nation and take away the protections which our elected legislators have wisely put in place.(cbn.org 2003). Maybe Mr. Torgrimson would be more content if we issued a fatwa against the Supreme Court. A fatwa is an order by a Muslim religious leader, and can include death.

He couldve at least offered some quotes from people than the likes of democrats like John Kerry or stealth democratic candidate Wesley Clark. I would hope something a little more balanced from someone who has such a prestigious column. (Obvious sarcasm should be noted).

For me, I am overjoyed that we have President Bush in office. I am proud of the men and women who are fighting and (sadly) dying to help Iraq attain freedom. I will pray everyday that the Supreme Court finds its roots once more.

Finally, I cant believe they give Wayne (sic) Torgrimson a column in the Fillmore County Journal. Brother!
