One of the great privileges of living in a free and democratic country is the right to freedom of speech. The right to have your opinion and to voice it in public without fear of recrimination.
The Courier recently extended this privilege to Mal Davey (letters from Sebastopol provide a regular laugh Thursday, April 12).
This is a privilege he appears to forget that the three mentioned corespondents also have.
As the French philosopher Voltaire once said "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it".
I was originally planning to write a letter in support of Arthur Gomer's view, but decided to write one in support of his (and others) right to express his view.
We are all entitled to have our own personal religious beliefs and have the right to express our religious beliefs publicly. This right is enshrined in our Federal Constitution.
