GilM ntano of Layton seems venomous in his insistence that all Mormon youth should be drafted into the military. He then suggests that after all the Mormons are drafted all Americans should be drafted.
His lack of knowledge in this issue is apparent. From my home town in Wyoming two such men are now serving in the military. They were called off their missions to fulfill their obligations to the military. I am not from Utah and have lived in various different states and I am still amazed that in Utah it seems all right to bash the LDS religion.
When I lived in Arizona, Alaska and Maine, bashing any religion would have been rude. In Utah it seems all right to bash LDS, only bashing other religions is rude. My husband is not LDS and feels that LDS people in Utah do not stand up for their religion. You even have meetings at the public library, which is a civic building and a civic matter, regarding a certain religion.
Perhaps Mr. Montano should see that other people support the war in Iraq to establish freedom. Others may feel that eight years of Democrats sleeping allowed this to happen, and we are glad we have a President who has stood up against terrorism.
When Clinton was President for eight years I did not vote for him, and I was ashamed he was our President, but I did not grow fangs and spit venom, especially at a certain religion regarding a political outcome.
