Why bow to the wishes of the perpetually offended?
The writer is responding to a column in Sunday’s Post, “Religious freedom goes over the cliff,” and a Tuesday letter, “We’re better than that.”
While I can understand his point, Todd Paris’s extrapolations are extremist at best.
That recusing oneself from violating one’s religious beliefs in regards to marriage (which is all this law is about) is somehow discrimination and will somehow lead to founding of a religion which discriminates against race or allows wife-beating, and Kim Porter’s bizarre interpretation that somehow “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” translates to separation of church and state are just more evidence that Christianity is under siege.
Christians are constantly expected to change or deny their beliefs to suit the perpetually offended.

Put local sports first
I am writing in response to the headlines in Tuesday’s Salisbury Post. The sports headlines were of Duke’s championship win. Then down below that story was Salisbury High’s baseball championship.
I would think that a local championship should be in the headlines. The team worked very hard to win their championship and they fall second on the front page. Shame on you, Salisbury Post.

Editor’s note: We might have to agree to disagree. The Post strives to emphasize local news and sports that are important to our readership. Duke’s NCAA victory may have happened in Indianapolis, but it was of great interest to many local people.
Not how most get stronger
How does putting a $3.95 million mortgage on a property the county already paid for make it stronger? Finance Director Leslie Heidrick said “We are fine without the financing, but it will make us stronger.” I am sorry, but this logic escapes me.
