I apologize to those I offended with my letter to the editor (Herald, June 13).
While I stand behind my opinion, I wish for those in the community to know that I am not the Sergio Verduzco who owns East By Southwest and the Golden Triangle. He is a moral, devout Catholic family man who needs to feed his family with his businesses. I ask for the community members not to boycott these fine establishments over my rantings.
A person whose beliefs have changed after writing that letter at the beginning of the month, I now believe that choice of religion is a right, and as bad as it may seem to me and a few others, it is a freedom of choice and should thus be kept that. I will cease writing letters to TheDurango Herald.
May your own gods, messiahs, pariahs, angels or whatever be with the people in our religious community.And for our atheistic community, take care of yourselves.
Sergio Trevin Verduzco, Durango
