If my letter gave the impression that I hated God or this country, then I can assure you that is far from my intention.
I simply don’t agree with any type of religion inside of a government setting.
I did not choose the title of my letter to the editor, and I would not disparage anyone of any religion praying to any God of their choosing on their own time.
In relation to the bible quotes, that’s actually my favorite part of the bible. No matter what your stance or situation is, you can find supporting evidence in its pages.
As to the “Tree-hugging, mother-earther, grass-kisser” title, I admit I’m guilty of those charges. You can also add butterfly chaser, water splasher and 2012 champion of flashlight tag.
You see, I teach my children to find beauty and show respect in all aspects of their lives. But, I’m also teaching them that when they see an injustice in society, and they are not part of the solution, then they are part of the problem. I wrote that letter because I believe things can be different and better if ego, hypocrisy and theocracy are taken out of the equation.
All religions have beauty and merit Tracy, they just have no place in government.

What exactly are the plans for south point? Either put plans in action to build a new school, or put in window units. Don't just do nothing! This is 2011, our children should not have to suffer like this. And it's not just the AC, if you'd go to PTC meetings, you'd know the 6th grade wasn't receiving proper air quality due to the ventilation system. How are our children supposed to learn like that? And South Point is one of the largest elementary schools in the area! This should be a priority!Aug 23, 2011
