This is a response to my letter to the editor of a couple of weeks ago.
USING PASTORSHIP TO BOOST ARGUMENTS IS WRONG
I disagreed completely with James McEntire’s fawning defense of Bush’s illegal and immoral war, but I was absolutely appalled that he found it necessary to try to lend weight to his remarks by identifying himself as a pastor. Perhaps he thinks his chosen avocation makes him more credible than other people, or perhaps he thinks he speaks for God. Whatever the reason, it’s wrong.

Funny, there was a time when Pastors were expected to be leaders in their communities. I suppose if I had a PHD it would have been perfectly legitimate to add that to my name to lend weight to my remarks. He's appalled, I'm appalled, were all appalled???
