Letter: Don’t make moral judgments

This is a reply to the reply to “Don’t dance on my toes” by letter writer Carl Uyehara in the Feb.12 PI.

Carl, I don’t care what a “nice young man” like Lance Page thinks is right or wrong or sinful or moral because I don’t go around judging others like Lance does.

When someone makes moral judgments on others’ private choices, that, Carl, is being self-righteous and I take offense.

If you or Lance want to think smoking is immoral for yourselves, that’s OK. When you pompously believe you can tell me what is moral for me, that’s not OK.

By the way, Carl, did you know you used the word “personal(ly) seven times in eight sentences? I think that might be some kind of record for personal redundancy. Just saying.
