Your Opinion: Religion, faith and government

Your Opinion: Religion, faith and government

January 17th, 2013 by Cal Winter, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

I think that a mature reading of Colette Tellman's Jan. 12 letter to the News Tribune will suggest that she and I are in deep agreement.

She says, "How sad and hopeless would your existence be without faith in something better to come."

Colette, reality does not conform to our needs, but if your life is enhanced by believing that you're going to be rescued then good for you. My message to all Christians and Muslims is, "Keep your religion away from our government."
