In the Same Boat
I am responding to Andrew Soboeiro’s column “Should Americans Feel Comfortable With a Theocracy?” (Oct. 7). I would like to offer the following observations.
Andrew’s writing indicates he is well-educated. I posit that, unless he was home-schooled or attended fully private schools, his education was at least in part paid for with taxpayer funds.
My wife and I have had no children in public or private schools for 35 years, yet we are by law required to pay for others’ education.
This legislation is the same for us as it is for Andrew when he writes, “I have to follow the laws and pay for their enforcement.”
My religion opposes abortion, but part of my taxes pay for it. So, Andrew, don’t complain that atheists are being unfairly treated. All religions are in the same boat, one way or another.
