Letter was about right and wrong, not bashing Catholics

In response to the gentleman who took issue with my recent Letter to the Editor, I would like to correct a few inaccurate statements in his response in order to set the record straight.

In his post, he stated that I am part of the “American Left,” which is not true. I am politically a centrist. My post had nothing to do with the Right or Left, it was about Right and Wrong.  There were 216,000 kids molested by Catholic priests. If anyone is OK with that, you should take a long look in the mirror.

My comments about Catholic priests were not hateful, they were just plain facts. If the gentleman doubts the veracity of my statements about the Catholic church and priests, look it up. All are correct and verifiable through reliable sources.

Maybe if the gentlemen was more focused upon correcting the heinous behaviors of Catholic (and other denominations) priests versus a local drag show, the world and our area would be a better place.
