As Roman Catholics, we were appalled and offended by the comments made by Rev. Jay Scott Newman (of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Greenville, S.C., who said parishioners who voted for Barack Obama should perform penance for backing a candidate who supports "pro-abortion" policies). The 61 percent of
McCain's comment, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong," shows just how out of touch with middle-class voters he is. Home foreclosures are occurring at an incredible rate. Merrill Lynch was just bought by Bank of America. Lehman Brothers was just acquired by Barclay's.
I read with interest the article "Can't afford to live" in the SCV, which basically was about a meeting of the Valencia Industrial Association.

There is no causal link between abortion and breast cancer. Repeat as necessary.
I was in the Santa Clarita Post Office on Creekside Road twice within the past week.
"Opinions" about the link between abortion and breast cancer are cheap, especially when respondents can spout them in online forums, attacking others and their opinions with demeaning, snarky terms while hiding behind a "user name" or pseudonym.
I have never written or responded to a letter to the editor until now, but I cannot let Carole Lutness's "Republicans go after the poor" (Dec. 9) go without a response.
I appreciate the care being taken by our City Council in determining what should be the centerpiece of the Newhall roundabout.
Charlie Vignola opens his column Dec. 3 by writing: "Simply put, what I believe shouldn't affect you, and what you believe shouldn't affect me - period" ("Slippery slope for U.S.").
