Editor,In response to the Sept. 4, guest commentary by Jack Allen. "Republicans, religious right, ignore what Jesus said": First of all, only a small minority (perhaps 5 percent) of Christians hold to John Calvin's belief that God predestines certain people for salvation based on His will, apart from people's choices. So for Mr. Allen to take that minority view, and apply it to Republican Party beliefs, is sheer nonsense.The vast majority of Arminianist (non-Calvinist) believers stridently refute Calvinism. Equating Calvinism with Republican beliefs is akin to saying people whose favorite color is red are all communists. In logic, this is called the "false cause and effect" fallacy.
