'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Monday, Dec. 3, 2012, 12:01 a.m.
 

Citizenship has nothing to do with religion. There is good and bad in everything. But atheists who try to stop the rest of us from practicing our religion actually are being bad citizens.

They should mind their own business and stop interfering with things they say don't exist or have meaning. Since there have always been atheists, why now are they wanting Christian monuments taken down? These things are not hurting them or their unbelief in any way. It seems they just want to cause problems.

It is time for our American government to step up and put citizens in their place. Our country was founded and always conducted its affairs as “one nation under God.” Our Supreme Court needs to decide if the atheists or any other groups are going to run our country or are we still “by the people and for the people”?

A man's religion has always been a choice, and God has given us this freedom of choice. If the atheists can use the First Amendment as a basis for their actions, so the Christians can also. Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion. The key word is freedom. As I have said in past letters, I am praying that those who deny Christ will find Him before they go into eternity alone and eternally fast. If they live their life choosing to not believe, that's up to them, but stop trying to degrade our Lord by wanting His good and wisdom to be removed.
