Letter writer makes a good point

This letter writer makes a good point;

A recent poll was conducted in which 86 percent of South Dakotans responded that they were Christian. Either the vast majority of Christians in this state failed to vote on Initiated Measure 11, or they did not vote according to the guiding light of the Christian faith: the Bible.

I would also like to add that they voted to keep video lottery, a great burden on the taxpayers of this state, not a benefit. They also voted to keep the food tax in our state, another burden on low income families. I often find that though South Dakotans may call themselves ‘Christians’ by a majority, they are something entirely different in the voting booth.

I would also like to point out that many pastors and churches came out against Measure 11 because they knew if it passed it wouldn’t prevent one single abortion.

And now the Catholic Church wants to control policy in an Obama White House. Good Luck.

A lot of people are really easy to dupe into doing something because they’re told God wants them to – so much so that they don’t stop and think about it.
I didn’t hear a single rational, logical argument in favor of IM 11.

Stop using words like ‘rational’ and ‘logical’ that only undermine’s Leslee’s mission.
