Don’t use tax dollars to proselytize religious beliefs

Re: “Political correctness out of control,” Thomas Michalski’s column, May 22-23
Editor:
Couldn’t agree with you more about the total goofiness of “political correctness.” I would, however, ask you to reconsider your use of the word “fanatic” regarding non-religious people. We don’t object to your Christmas, nor do we seek to deny you the right of worship and belief.

We strongly object to the use of our tax dollars in the advertising, promotion, proselytizing and brainwashing of the innocent as seen in our public schools, courthouses, city halls, parks, the voucher funding of religious schools, prayer openings of public meetings ... and I could go on. Thirty percent of Americans claim “no religion” in many, many valid polls (not FOX? News?) and the U.S. Census. That’s more than the combined number of Jews and Muslims in the United States. Yet everyone is very careful not to negatively comment on those groups.

Thump the Bible or whatever, if it assuages fear of a mythical hell. Just quit doing it on our tax dollar. And that goes for the Supremes and their recent ridiculous decision regarding prayer before governmental meetings. In their great wisdom they also decided that corporations are “people.” At least the “liberal leanings,” as you put it, of a newspaper don’t become law.
