Church State Issues

Atheists, Jews, Muslims and Hindus shut up and be tolerant

Aug 29, 2013

Arizona Republic

Atheists, Jews, Muslims and Hindus please shut up and be tolerant of your Christian masters.


On prayer, tolerance one-sided

Wed Aug 28, 2013 7:58 PM

A letter on Tuesday suggests we should show some maturity on prayer during governmental meetings (“Show some maturity on prayer,” Opinions).

I agree we have the right to participate in prayer if we choose. But why must those who are opposed to prayer always be the ones who have to “be mature” and show tolerance?

It seems that whenever religion and government come together, it’s always those who have different beliefs (or none at all) who have to be tolerant.

Let’s just not have prayer before the Glendale City Council meetings and let those who wish to pray do so prior to the meeting in silence.
