The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

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?
