Separation or not

-A A +A

Letter to the editor by D.I. Larson

By D.I. Larson

Talk about a double standard.

Citizens and churches are not permitted to criticize the follies of government, but the president can insist that citizens and churches exhort and laud the follies of bad government legislation? Are we to be our own executioners?

Yesterday the president told churches to talk it up for his notorious health care bill, a bill despised by the overwhelming majority of Americans. What gives with this guy? Does he not “get” anything?

When citizens, recently, tried an initiative to spur churches to speak out against bad legislation, they were pilloried at the stake of public opinion.

Either we have separation of church and state for everyone, including the president, or we don’t. Which is it?
