Regarding Bring on the revolution (Letters, July 9): Does the writer have it right in calling for a new revolution? Why, one must ask, shouldnt a corporation have the right to establish its own religious restrictions on its employees? Its not a public entity (such as the state), so what gives anyone the right to dictate their own beliefs to the corporation? And, frankly, if one just cant stomach working for said corporation, one has the right to leave and seek a corporation more closely aligned with ones personal views.
While the writer is bemoaning the disrespect corporations and the government show their people, he commits the height of disrespect in referring to Thomas Jefferson as Tommy. Are you related to him? The perch you place yourself upon speaks to your hypocrisy. However, feel free to start a constitutional convention, or at least the process leading up to it. Do you really believe your First Amendment right to free speech would survive? Id like to believe it would, but I dont really think it would. Careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
