Patsy Washburn (Readers' Forum, March 16) seems to think that listing Barack Obama's plans for America makes me a bigot, hateful and not a Christian. Does disagreeing with Obama make me a bigot, simply because he is black?

Is it hateful to not want government-run programs such as socialized medicine? I've lived in two countries with government-run health programs and saw the fallacies.

Is it hateful to point out that Obama says he will do away with the tax cuts? (And yes, taxes do go up under Democrats.)

It is because I am a Christian that I abhor the killing of babies and disdain same-sex marriage, which apparently would take away from Ms. Washburn's "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness."

No, Obama's changes are still not good for America.
