To the editor:
I feel compelled to defend my high school civics teacher, Mr. North, who, if alive, would inform Mr. Martin Bales (Daily Journal, Jan. 15) that I was one of his best civics students. I fully understand the concept of representative government and constitutional conventions.
The purpose of my previous letter was to address another lesson in civics that Mr. North taught us. It is that representative governments and constitutional conventions can be abused. To date, most people who read my letter understood that point; however, I will be glad to offer further clarity and clear Mr. North’s teaching credentials.
My aforementioned letter (Daily Journal, Dec. 31) took Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma and Gov. Mike Pence to task for their justifications for addressing same-sex marriage in Indiana.
