Child abuse not funny 

As a conservative reader of the Gazette, I come expecting to be disagreeable to, frustrated with, and even angered by the majority of its contents. I continue to read out of amusement and because the diversity of opinion exposes where the lines of contention truly lie. But what I read in the Feb. 8 issue crossed a line I never dreamed my liberal antagonists would dare approach.

In his “On the Cover” piece (page 3), Phil Bacharach compared the unpopularity of taxes to “Jerry Sandusky at a Boy Scouts gathering.” And so it is: The liberal mind-set has stooped so low that the alleged sexual abuse of innocent children has become a matter of humor.

What this actually portrays is a stop on the pathway that began with the discounting of an innocent unborn child as “not a human, but only a fetus.” I can’t help but wonder where this callous road ends, and what effect it will have on our children.

Or perhaps Bacharach was simply referring to Sandusky’s coaching skills.
