Speaking of that Saturday Religion section, about a year or so ago the paper stopped running religious letters to the editor in the regular “Letters to the Editor” section of the paper. Instead they were segregated and put in the once-weekly Religion section. I was miffed when they did that. What they’re saying is that religion has nothing to say to contemporary issues. Well fear no more, the entire section is gone. As I think back over the past couple of editions of the paper I realize that is has been gone for a little while.I’m not going to yell “Censorship!” Nor am I going to gripe about freedom of speech. What irks me the most is what has bothered me from the beginning: the notion that religion has no place in the public square. The Founding Fathers wouldn’t have liked that idea at all.
