Eric Wadley asserts that Barack Obama is exactly the principled, visionary leader that LDS and others should recognize as their ideal candidate (Readers' Forum June 5). I do not doubt Obama's principles or even his good intentions, and I believe he is sincere in his desires for change. But I also know that he is pro-abortion, is in support of redefining the family and sees taxes as a primary route to funding and enlarging welfare programs. I do not agree with his policies, regardless of his principles.
