To the editor:

Despite what some may think about Bob Vander Plaats, he is a good man with a noble cause. Those of us who believe in the sanctity of life, marriage and family are neither jihadists nor terrorists.

Our efforts to preserve what is decent in life are not acts of terrorism but are instead acts intended to strengthen families, which helps stregnthen Iowa and make our state a better place to live. 

Truly there is nothing wrong with that.
