Editor: Rev. Donte' L. Hickman's recent criticisms of your editorial cartoon were totally unfounded. No one here is hiding behind children or exploiting them for a more "pervasive" agenda. To come into this community and accuse us of racism and exploiting children is not how you win friends and influence people. These kids started this Save Our Pool campaign on their own. They wanted their pool opened so they decided to contact our local Council Representative and ask him to help the County find a way to purchase the property or open the pool.

As a retired Roman Catholic priest, I can see many religious reasons to support the civil marriage equality law ("Scare tactics on Question 6," Oct. 18). Both Scripture and Christian theology are supportive and persuasive. In the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus tells his followers to give back to Caesar (civil government) what belongs to Caesar. In the letters of Paul and Peter there are instructions to respect civil society. Don't mix the laws of the state with those of the church: Jesus' kingdom is not of this world.

"I enjoy writing and editing, but I'm no good at sales."
