They died for freedom

Dear Editor: Mr. Harwell, I am one of those Jehovah's Witnesses you recently decided to write about and am also a Vietnam Veteran, who had to go through a very hard time after I came home and there was no flag waving for us.

The reason I am writing is about your misinformation about Jehovah's Witnesses. While it is true that we do not salute the flag, which has been treated and deemed as an object of worship, we do not desecrate it either. We stand respectfully as a matter of honor to those who wish to salute ...

Made you look bad

Dear Editor: Nat has a right to believe what he wants. He also has the unalienable right to free speech. However, the speech in the referenced article makes you look bad. It is just stupid.

However, if I were to judge you by this one article you would look bad.

Column contradictions

Dear Editor: I am writing in response to the article today in your newspaper titled "The America They Fought For" by Nat Harwell.

Since when have Jehovah's Witnesses not supported the United States? They don't pay taxes? Obey laws? Help citizens in need? Set an excellent example of community involvement and support? I can somewhat appreciate Mr. Harwell's outrage at Jehovah's Witnesses, but he is literally extracting a needle out of a haystack in saying they are "un-American" because they choose to exercise their American liberties in covering up what they consider to be anti-theological rhetoric ...
