Thank you Harry Nieves and Jill Torres for your letters to the editor of the L.A. Daily Rag. Two different subjects, yet both address a conservative view that I too as a Republican agree with.

Vic Picou, the founding fathers of this nation and the signers of the Constitution did define our Laws and the Constitution on the laws of God. Most of those signing were Christian themselves and those that weren't supported the same principles. If what you say,("If they also want a blessing or a ceremony, that should be strictly a personal action having no connection to the government."), then why is Prop 8 being taken up by those who oppose it, before the courts, of which are established by this government?

Mr. Nieves, your comments may have held some weight until you intentionally misnamed the DEMOCRATIC party by calling it the Democrat party. This is nothing but a veiled insult the far right likes to use when they have no real intelligent comment, or criticism to make.

Ms. Torres, you are wrong. Most so-called Christians do indeed back torture. You can call it "preventing attacks" all you want, but it is still torture, and it is still illegal. What is more ironic is that "Christians" that support these policies seem to have quickly forgotten how their namesake died; torture and execution. So, just who's example are you following?

I found it ironic and quite disturbing that Pastor Rodriguez states that he wants a Supreme Court justice to restrict women's rights to control their pregnancies, limit who can and cannot be legally married, and -- in the same breath -- keep government out of people's lives!

It is amazing how some people can spew such contradictory logic without any idea of what they are saying.
