Nomination of Clarence Thomas

Sara Fritz writes, "If they oppose Thomas, analysts say, liberals may open themselves to the charge that they are discriminating against a minority nominee simply because his views are not in line with their own" ("Nomination of Thomas Seen as Deft Political Stroke," July 3).

This is a shocking possibility, if the analysts are correct. With all the good reasons for opposing or supporting people, such as race, nationality, party or religious affiliation, economic status, sexual orientation, generosity or its lack, addictions, etc., now are we to oppose or support people simply because of their views? What is the country coming to?
