To the editor of THE EAGLE:

Regarding Jeff Branca’s recent rant about unChristian Obama and Democrats (letter, July 26), I will not dignify his ramblings with a response except on one point.

His statement about the Church of the Hobby Lobby being forced by our president into the role of assisting in abortions is wrong.

The morning after pill, which is what this is about, prevents the fertilization of the egg, it does not cause an abortion. Even the top scientists Mr. Branca mentions should know this.

As for the above and the rest of Mr. Branca’s rant, a famous quote of Daniel Patrick Moynihan comes to mind: "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts."
