New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 10, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 4 A O HefaWZeftuna O Sunday Seotember 10 1995 Opinion To talk with Managing Editor Doug Loveday about the Opinion page call 6259144 ext 21 media are a pest by the very nature of that camera in their Princess Anne British royal 1986 E D I T O R I A If s their right Participation of Christian Coalition in political process perfectly legitimate Theres a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth these days inside the loop in Washington The Christian Coalition is holding their annual convention and word that they plan to be actively involved in the coming pres idential election has liberals screaming Get real It seems to me that what really is opposed by liberals is not par ticipation of religious groups but participation by conservative evangelical Christian organizations Every religious cultural gender and racerelated organiza tion expresses themselves at the polls and in the media around election time but let a conservative Christian group do the same and watch the bashing begin Liberals support wholeheartedly the political wings of orga nizations like the Nation of Islam and even Bnai Brith but when the Christian Coalition gets involved people start screaming about the separation of church and state thats another editorial in itself and the inappropriajeness of Christians engaged in the American political process If you could get to the real core of their fears its not the sep aration of church and state issue but the loss of political power to conservative Christians This whole debate is about power and the tactic used by liberals is to scare the populous into thinking that horrible conservatives plan to take over the country destroy citizens rights and basically make a mess of things Baloney Conservatives have awakened politically and organizations like the Christian Coalition will not be standing idly by without responding to liberal criticism and misinformation In our politically correct society it seems the only folks that can still be bashed without repercussion are conservative Christians Thank God thats finally being challenged Todays editorial was written by

fellow candidate Sen Phil Gramm in the Iowa straw poll revealed his vulnerability Despite his mostly con servative senate voting record especially on abortion Dole is not fully trusted by the family values wing of his party Two recent reports have added to suspicions that Dole is more a process man than one who would not compromise on issues regarded as fundamental by conservatives A frontpage New York Times story quoted Dole as saying he would be sat isfied with Colin Powell as a vice presidential choice He describe Powell as probably an economic conservative and a social moderate And a frontpage Washington Times story quoted Dole as saying at a Republican National Committee meeting in Philadelphia last month that hes willing to be another Ronald thats what you want Ill be another Ronald The line was viewed as insincere and groveling by some who heard it Dole is scheduled to deliver a speech in Chicago next week It may be his last opportunity to articulate Cal Thomas a list of firm principles from which he will not devi ate Perhaps he should call it his own contract with or promise to America It worked for House candi dates last year It could work for Dole especially if he says he was wrong in the past about compromis es with Democrats over tax increases Dole will have to do more however than recast himself He needs to be reincarnated We need to know what constitutes Doles vision for America George Bush disparaged the vision but people want to know where their leader would lead them Dole must demonstrate that he has the traits of a president not those of a Senate Majority Leader There was only one Ronald Reagan Is there only one Bob Dole and who is he Conservatives have come too far over a very long period to settle for an insidetheBeltway candidate who believes in finessing his opponents rather than defeating them on ideological grounds The contest for high office is about a conflict between ideas some of them irreconcilable Why hasnt liberalism worked Senator Do peo ple really want to reconnect with their govern ment as you have promised to help them do or would they prefer to disconnect from the overpriced unworkable programs Which Cabinet and subCabinet level departments would you eliminate and why with no functions transferred to other departments and agencies Would you work to eliminate the National Endow ment for the Arts instead of just cutting its budget as congressional Republicans have done and why Would you announce a steppedup campaign to increase the number of crisis pregnancy centers and adoption options as the best alternative to abortion And what about your White House staff Would you name conservatives to the highest posts includ ing chief of staff so that you would have people working for you and not against you center of the Republican party and of someone of strong convictions who wont waffle when the heat gets turned up by the liberals someone with a track record of consistency and dedication to the conservative cause The Manchester Union Leader recently edi torialized that Dole is a man without a His speech next week is an opportunity to prove that he has a message and to link economics to the moral revival of the nation Revival is not primarily the work of government though government can stop working against it Dole should forget the socalled moderates in the Republican party Theyre history and their history has done little to win presidential elections Moder ation is the sole virtue of one who believes in noth ing substantial Dole must wake up and smell the con servative coffee If he doesnt hell be history too Cal Thomas is a syndicated What do you think Late last week the French government sent army troops to Tahiti to put down protests begun following Frances decision to begin testing nuclear weapons in the Pacific Frances decision to resume testing comes in the wake of recent nuclear tests carried out by the Chinese Both nations have been severely criticized by environmentalists and governments around the world Some peopje however believe the should not rule out conduct ing our own nuclear tests We want to know what you think r Fill out the coupon drop it by

responses were received by the HeraldZeitung to last weeks survey question Is growing up in a Spanishspeaking home detrimen tal to a childs education All five believed that children are at a disadvantage academically if they grow up in a predominantly Spanishspeaking environment Some of the responses included If you live in Mexico City its fine but in this country English is the national language Having to relearn basic communication only slows down the total learning process After having taught for 35 years and having observed my answer is The child who can speak English adjusts faster and reads quicker Comprehension is easier Also having parents who can rein force learning at home is also a key factor I think Judge Kiser was right to call this child abuse After all English is our universal language and her child should not be deprived of this proper and rightful start in her education It was obvious that the mother can speak English and there is no reason why she should not teach her child English first along with Spanish as secondary English is the primary language used in the If the kids can learn both English and Spanish OK But to do English should come first It is good to know ones heritage but once that child goes to an Englishspeaking school that child must cope with starting school and all that entails If cannot speak English cannot even ask to go to the rest room I know it happened to me Today In History By The Associated Press Today is Sunday September 10 the 253rd day of 1995 There are 112 days left in the Todays Highlight in History On Sept 10
