A little Nevada County, a little Houston, a little crazy

The Union writer says “go to CABPRO and learn about the spotted owl, the sucker fish that stopped all farming in the Klamath Basin, about trying to destroy Englebright Dam, about the Endangered Species Act, about Rural Cleansing and etc., then you will see what NH 2020 is all about” (letters, March 12). That has nothing whatsoever to do with NH 2020 in Nevada County. That is what CABPRO’s fear-based program of disinformation is all about.

Could it be that the incessant browbeating Andrea Yates suffered at the hand’s of evangelical preacher Peter Woronieki pushed her over the edge? Might Yates have been so influenced by the preacherman’s words that in her mind the only way out to save her children from Satan and eternal damnation was to drown them?

The Saudi Arabian government has accused the country’s religious police of preventing the rescue of 14 girls trapped in a school fire because they were not wearing long dresses and head coverings required in public. All girls died.

Sound like the fundamentalist religious police of the Taliban who plundered, polarized and destroyed society, culture and life in Afghanistan?

Aren’t we lucky we don’t have secret religious police stalking, harassing and persecuting us in America???
