First Amendment

By From page A5 | December 18, 2013


I am responding to Katie Meyer’s letter in the Dec. 13 edition.

She states the obvious, that Christians are a majority in the U.S., and asks me, “…what would make you think we are a secular nation?”

Well, Katie, it’s not what I think, it’s what I know. With the First Amendment to the Constitution, Jefferson, Adams, Washington and the other Founding Fathers insured that no one can impose his or her religion on any of us, including you and me. Isn’t that great?

We are a nation with a Christian majority. Our government is and always will be secular.
