Hits close to home
I read with interest the article in the Oct. 22 edition titled “Congress awards medal to the Dalai Lama” (page 3), but was flabbergasted when I came to President Bush’s remark “Americans cannot look to the plight of the religiously oppressed and close their eyes or turn away.” Is the President really unaware of the bashing American Christians are receiving every day? Please send him a copy of your front page for that same issue and highlight the story on high school football coach Marcus Borden’s censure for bowing his head or kneeling while his team prays before a game.
Will no one take Ed Barocas and the ACLU to court for violating Coach Borden’s right to freely practice his religion, or has the ACLU been successful in eliminating these words “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” from the First Amendment to the Constitution? Agnes Peterson Malibu, California
