Use of column ill-advised


Nick Gier’s op-ed was an interesting collection of assumptions and might-bes. The real wonder of his writing is his reference to the Bible as a source, but one that is flawed. If flawed, why believe any of it? But then, he taught religion and philosophy at the University of Idaho, so who am I to doubt his accuracy.

My real concern is why the editorial board of The Spokesman-Review chose to publish his editorial on Christmas Day. Actually, I think the editorial page should publish all perspectives, but a modicum of respect would suggest that Christmas Day is not the day for Gier’s opinion.

Would The Spokesman-Review be so bold as to publish such a condescending opinion on the most holy day of Islam?
