Have faith in humor


On July 22, Rich Yokel complained that the July 13 “Non-Sequitur” cartoon depicted a tinkering God with a judgmental wife, which he considered blasphemous. He stated that the good Christian readers of this newspaper should not be subjected to such ill-conceived depictions and requested an apology.

Mr. Yokel has every right to his beliefs. He does not have the right to tell anyone else what to believe or how to comport themselves. I personally believe that God endowed each of us with a sense of humor and hopefully a little common sense to determine when something requires censure. This is not one of those occasions. Lighten up, Mr. Yokel.
