Your Opinion: Response #1 to Capitol Caroling complaint

December 15th, 2012 by Cathie Hirschvogel, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

In response to Jessica Lako's letter about the religious music at the Capitol Caroling, I would just like to say that Christians have lost too many rights already.

As long as the majority of the tax payers are Christians, then we should have the right to have our dollars used for this 75 year old tradition. December 25th is a celebration of Christmas - not a "holiday" or "season."

We sing those songs in celebration of Christmas.

Ms. Lako, I don't begrudge you the right to have your own beliefs. Nor do I force you, or anyone, to attend the Capitol Caroling. But as long as I'm a taxpayer, too, then I should have the right to hear our traditional, religious music.
