Christians' plight

Daily Photo Galleries

Regarding the news story “Religious freedom in U.S. nears extreme challenge” (July 4 and TribLIVE.com): Why is it that freedom of religion becomes freedom from Christian religion every time there is a contest?

I refer to the Connellsville Ten Commandments controversy and challenge all Christians to stand firm, demanding that the monument be allowed to remain where it is, uncovered and publicly displayed.

We allow others who have migrated to our country, most after the monument was placed, to enjoy freedom to worship as they please. Why then should restrictions fall upon those whom the Founders represented, in a nation founded on Christian ideals?

If we were the minority, we would not be challenged! We no longer accept and protect the minority, but bow down and are governed by them.

I did not celebrate this Independence Day. My freedoms are being lost and given away. We are being destroyed by ourselves, just as Lincoln predicted so many years ago.
