Letter to the Editor

Separation is religious protection

Thursday, May 3, 2007

To the editor:In response to Richard Kline's letter "History should guide, not divide": Separation of church and state protects and defends the rest of us from being dominated by a single religious group whether that group is Catholic, Protestant, Jewish or Islamic. Mr. Kline seems to be advocating a Christian version of Shari'a. He should read his Jefferson.
