Re­li­gious free­dom

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

You’ve heard of the old adage,” Be care­ful what you wish for — you may get it.” Such will be the re­wards of the takeover of the Congress by the Democrats.

I was in a Chase Man­hat­tan Bank re­cently do­ing busi­ness and over­heard an em­ployee men­tion they had been or­dered to re­move the Christ­mas tree in the bank lobby. How sad that we in Amer­ica can’t be al­lowed “free­dom of wor­ship” as our fore­fa­thers fought so hard to achieve.

My first im­pulse was to make a scene and loudly pro­claim that the ac­tivists who pro­mote th­ese kinds of deeds are the mi­nor­ity, not the ma­jor­ity.

Per­haps the new lead­er­ship in Wash­ing­ton would like to re­spond and de­fend our con­tin­ued free­doms in this coun­try. The al­ter­na­tive could be the same sit­u­a­tion that has been un­fold­ing in Iraq: Each and ev­ery sec­tar­ian re­li­gion is fight­ing against their fel­low coun­try­man. It’s a “no win” sit­u­a­tion. D.J. Wit­torff Plain­field, In­di­ana
