Letter: Grateful for USA where people can express their opinions without fear of arrest
With all the recent media hubbub regarding Chick-fil-A and same-sex marriage, let me just say this, "Thank Heaven I live in the USA."
I am so grateful to live in a country where people from Michael Moore to Michael Savage can express their opinions without fear of arrest, imprisonment or execution by the government.
As a devout Latter-day Saint, I am so grateful for the right to worship God as I choose, but I am also grateful others have the right to either worship at another church, openly criticize my religious faith or choose not attend any church whatsoever.
And as a registered Republican, I am grateful for the right to vote for Gov. Gary Herbert in November, but I am also grateful to know others have the right to vote for Peter Cooke or one of the third party candidates for governor.
If only the rest of the world were as blessed as we are. Let freedom ring.
