Letter to the Editor: Applauding an oft-ignored viewpoint

Published: October 16, 2009
Section: Opinions


I very much enjoyed [“Finding my religion: A Spiritual and Intellectual Journey” (Oct. 9, 2009) by Daniel Ortner]. Too often I find the residents of Massachusetts are unwilling to accept opposing ideas.

This is a very interesting idea when Massachusetts considers itself to be a very open and accepting.

To truly be an open people we most be open to more than just change and radical or conservative ideas but also to allow ourselves exposure to ideas that may seem in opposition to our own thoughts.
