Look Mr. Leon Ceniceros you are free to practice your religion
on private property, but it's wrong to use the government to force
your religion on me on public property.
If you love living in a country that mixes religion and government maybe you
should move to a religious theocracy where they force religion on people
at gun point.
You might enjoy Saudia Arabia or Iran. Of course you might be unhappy,
because they will not force Christianity on you at gun point but instead
you will have the Muslim religion forced on you at gun point.
Letter: Small minority played big role in eliminating religion

Letter to the Editor
In 1691, the first Thanksgiving,
where the protestant pilgrims thanked their Lord, Jesus Christ,
for giving them a bountiful harvest, began.
That could never happen today.
The ACLU and lawyers for non-Christian religions would
have a court injunction prohibiting any and all reference
to Jesus Christ because that would insult their sensibilities.
Our “public” schools, colleges, universities,
and business entities have taken any reference of God or Jesus Christ
out of all of our holidays (which were originally holy days).
Christmas is now called “winter holiday.”
Thanksgiving is now called “fall festival.”
Easter no longer celebrates the resurrection but is called “spring break”
and celebrates bunny rabbits and colored eggs.
Workers were given these holidays to attend church;
now they work that day because it has become a day of “monster sales.”
The military services are reducing or flat out removing anything that refers to God or Jesus Christ.
Just today a judge in Santa Monica, California ordered the removal of a
manger scene that has been displayed for years.
A cross out in the middle of the Joshua Tree National Monument
that was put up before it was a national monument to honor our
fallen military ended up as a case of religious discrimination before our Supreme Court.
Even though 75 percent of Americans declare themselves to be
Christian (believers in Jesus Christ),
the 4 percent who don’t believe in Jesus Christ and the 13 percent
who don’t believe in religion period,
have sadly managed to eliminate God in our schools, military and the workplace.
