Church State Issues

Ginger Chabot wants to force her prayers on us????

Aug 27, 2013

Arizona Republic

In this letter to the editor, Ginger Chabot of Gilbert sounds like she wants to use government to force her religious beliefs and prayers on the rest of us.

I think Ginger Chabot needs to read the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; ..."
and Article 2 Section 12 of the Arizona Constitution which says
"... No public money or property shall be appropriated for or applied to any religious worship, exercise, or instruction, or to the support of any religious establishment ..."

Show some maturity on prayer

I am so tired of the whining by those who oppose prayer at governmental meetings.

As Americans, everyone has as much right to appreciate or participate in prayer as those who don’t.

If you prefer not to listen or participate, take the high road and show some respect for the people who do.

Showing some maturity and tolerance won’t hurt you, I promise.

— Ginger Chabot, Gilbert
