Letter To The Editor: Are You An Extremist?

Are you an extremist?

An extremist is a member of an (extreme) organization who supports and advocates the beliefs and goals of an extreme organization. KKK is an organization which has been frequently held up as an example. However, a recent political flyer identified RTLNM (Right to Life New Mexico) as an extreme organization. So, if you are a pro-life member or supporter of RTLNM, are you an extremist?

Scientifically, human life begins at conception is not in dispute. Disagreement exists on whether an unborn child is a person.

On another subject … I was perusing the ‘net recently and came across a story of the actress Jennifer Garner attending church services with her kids. That in itself was not terribly unusual; many celebrities do so.
