Letters

Law center's real agenda is nothing about justice

I just read the recent letter in (News-Times, April 4, 2007), from Lori Housley, who 'seconds statements made in a recent newsletter from the American Center for Law and Justice,' in support of the administration's position on the firing of eight U.S. Attorneys and funding for the Iraq war.

One might think that the American Center for Law and Justice would be concerned with law and justice. Actually it is a right wing fundamentalist Christian lobbying organization. Its web site states: 'American Center for Law and Justice is a d/b/a for Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism, Inc., a tax-exempt, not-for-profit religious corporation as defined under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.'

On the issues of substance in the letter, I do not see why Karl Rove and Harriet Miers should not be willing to testify under oath if they have acted honorably. And on the question of bringing our troops home from Iraq, it should be noted that a substantial majority of the population opposes the disastrous war policy, initiated by lies, of the Bush Administration.
