As a graduate of the Johns Hopkins University some years ago, I feel called upon to remind this august body that the motto of the school is, or was, veritas vos liberabit , or, the truth shall make you free. Obviously the present administration does not know that, or, if they do, does not subscribe to it. A few years ago, I ceased all financial support of the school because I felt that it no longer represented the views of myself or many of my fellow graduates. I think that in the current actions of Hopkins, this was a good, but sad decision.

Of course, I agree with The Sun's general comments in the editorial regarding the Johns Hopkins Student Government Association's overturning of the decision to deny recognition to Voice for Life, a pro-life group ("Hopkins students get it right, at last," April 11). However, your spin on the story, where you claim that young women fear that they could be harassed by this group, is typically outrageous. You further state that any challenge to abortion rights is a personal affront to young women and their control over their bodies.

I find it unbelievable that Dan Rodricks , in his Sunday column, thinks that the laws God gave us to live by are antiquated ("Ben Carson's conservative views are drawn from the Bible" Mar 30). The problems we face in this world today come from that same line of thinking. If we never turned our backs on God, we wouldn't live in a world on the edge of self destruction that exists today. All I can do is pray that the Lord opens Mr. Rodricks' eyes to the truth before He returns to take His church home.

"If there is anything that links the human to the divine, it is the courage to stand by a principle when everybody else rejects it. " -- Abraham Lincoln History is full of warnings about what happens when people follow public opinion instead of standing by their principles. In its most extreme manifestation, public opinion might well become mob rule when vigilantes take the law into their own hands. Major media have whipped the crowd into its latest frenzy over same-sex marriage, or should I say "marriage equality," the latest euphemism, likely intended to make the masses more accepting of what was once unacceptable.

Just wanted to say a resounding "thank you" for printing Maria Santo's article on the truth - the simple, basic truth - of what abortion is: killing a very young baby. Thank you for not bowing to the insanity of political correctness on this most fundamental issue of human rights. How can we concern ourselves with child abuse or any other important human rights issue while we are endorsing genocide of babies? Yvette Ridenour Catonsville

Journalist Bob Woodward, certainly not a lifelong conservative, dares to tell the truth about the current administration and is castigated by the White House and the trolls in the media ("Woodward's spat with White House grabs spotlight," March 1)? How interesting. Let's see if others now break ranks and decide to tell the truth about this abomination. F. Cordell Text NEWS to 70701 to get Baltimore Sun local news text alerts
