Letter: Public prayer


It is certainly a sign of the politically correct non-sectarian times when my prayer in the name of my Redeemer is an offense to Rabbi Plotkin, Madeline Ziegler, Sherry Brown or anyone else to whom the name of Jesus is an offense. This separation business of church and state as if this is a Constitutional issue is beyond ridiculous but at the same time is easy to understand. Jesus said He would be an offense to the unbeliever and so it plays out in the town of Chino Valley. If I pray publicly, I will do it in the name of Jesus without apology as He is my Savior and if you examine the facts and His claims you may become a believer as well. The non- sectarian idea that all "religious systems" are equal just do not fly in the real world of true understanding of four thousand plus years of Biblical and archaeological truth. I wonder if the city of Dearborn, Michigan starts their council meetings with some kind of "prayer" from the Koran or some moon god prayer.

Perhaps Madeline Ziegler, the legal fellow from the Freedom From Religion Foundation in Wi. (My home state along with the birthplace of the A.C.L.U.), ought to see if someone in Dearborn is being offended. Stupid is it not!
