Letter: Allow freedom to flourish at library

Published:

 

I have to take issue with Brian Copp's criticism of the display at the Cascade Park Community Library and his view of the First Amendment ("Library display criticized," letters, Jan. 28). If you don't like what books are on display at the library or any book you find objectionable, my advice is not read them. Just because other people don't share your religious values doesn't mean that they should be censored in any way, shape or form. You might want to get a copy of the Bill of Rights and go over those rights.

This is another example of members of the far religious right feeling that their morals are superior to the rest of us. A person's religion doesn't make him or her a model citizen, their behavior does.
