Letter: Does leaders’ lack of respect represent your views?

Leaders show no respect

Hey, my Democrat friends. Is this really your Democratic Party? First your leadership tries to take God out of the party platform as in “our God-given rights” at your national convention, and now this.

Your Oregon State Re. Carolyn Tomei (D-Milwaukie) opens the current legislative session with a modified Pledge of Allegiance! How does this sound: “I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under LOVE (emphasis added), indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.”

Do she and her lack of respect for your belief in God reflect your views? And her lack of respect for the Pledge of Allegiance? Is the Democratic Party really that Godless? Is this really your Democratic Party?
