I read with interest Bishop Medley’s letter (July 9, Messenger-Inquirer) urging removal of the Confederate statue from the courthouse because some find it offensive.

I find it offensive that the bishop will insert himself in this political discussion all the while refusing to call out Catholics who support a political party advocating legal abortion during all nine months of pregnancy, going so far even as to put this plank in their party platform.

Does anyone else find this amusing? I for one sure do.

Perfect example of a single issue reactionary. You need to look at the entire message of The Christ's teachings before you write again.
