• • Maybe it’s time for GOP to beam up to another planet
Denny Henshaw Jr., East Oregonian (Pendleton, OR) Atheism | I have found that I must respond to the Umatilla Republican Party chairman’s letter in last Thursday’s East Oregonian. [....] My father has worked harder in his life than Mitt Romney would in 20 lifetimes. He is also a Christian, as is Don Bensel. Yet Mitt Romney vets and vets and picks Paul Ryan as his sidekick. Ayn Rand is Paul Ryan’s mentor. Don’t lie for him, Fox News or Mr. Chairman. Nobody else said this, he did. Does it raise any eyebrows in your party that Ayn Rand was a devout pro-choice atheist that believed the strong shall survive and the weak shall and “should” perish? Do you actually expect us to vote these “moral” people into office, Mr. Peterson?
