Pete Kissinger [Nov. 26 letter] seems to think that the Bible is the root of all intolerance. One need only pay attention to the world news to discover that intolerance is present everywhere and in many places where the Bible is not to be found. It is also somewhat confusing to see how the Republicans elected an incompetent president. I believe the Democrats did that all on their own. However, the Republicans did themselves or the county no favors when they caused the removal of Richard Lugar.
