Freedom of Religion...so long as you're Christian

I've never laughed so hard at a letter to the editor before in my life. I mean, you have to laugh right? Otherwise you start to remember that there really are people out there who believe this crap.

I'm not sure which is funnier -- that this person actually uses the fact that our money mentions god as proof that we should all believe in this concept, or the fact that this person seems to think "baptist, catholic, methodist" constitutes a range of religions contained within the concept of "freedom of religion."

Wonder what rock that person crawled out from under. Did the atheists cause the demise of prayer in school - or was it the weak Christians that allowed it to happen? Either way, prayer is not out of schools. Public, teacher led prayer is. No school can keep me from whispering a sweet prayer into my Lord's ear.

Dopey - and remember that the world often judges all Christians on the basis of a few nuts like this one. That sounds like stereotyping to me.

Anyway, it's not wrong for a Christian to be politically active, but a Christian should also not be barbarically offensive to the rights of others. All Christians should never forget that a simple whispered prayer has much more power than all the shouts of all the atheists combined.

Oh brother.

Shortly after 9/11, there was a letter to the editor trying to make a connection between abortion and the attack at the WTC. God let it happen because he's mad we don't all hate abortion.

I think we need to decide who really is responsible for all the bad stuff in our country. Atheists? Abortion rights activists? My vote goes to Nickelback and their fans, but I might be in a teensy minority.

Oh, I'm totally with you on the Nickelback thing
