Letter to the editor: Deeply offended

Deeply offended

Received May 2

It would be an understatement to say I was shocked by Evan Frasure’s remarks on why he is the better candidate for Secretary of State than Phil McGrane. I am a Lutheran living in a predominantly LDS community. Our neighbors, our friends and co-workers on charity events are all LDS. We act together as people, agreeing to recognize our differences but not affecting our friendships or projects. Mr. Frasure stated one of the reasons he should be elected is he is a Mormon and McGrane is Catholic; that he is a good Republican and McGrane is not. To me, this means Mr. Frasure is a bigot and judgmental. I do not think religion should be part of politics and I am deeply offended by this comment.
