Majority must rule

Dear editor:

As usual some people took my message the wrong way, (God bless you).

If God has no place in our government or the founding of our nation why in his name on so many things. They are on our money, courts, monuments, there is even a minister hired to offer a pray in congress and the senate. Our fore fathers expressed their faith in God.

Now that being said. There has always been a prayer offered at the beginning of sporting events, at meetings, at schools, and any event when we call upon the Lord to watch over us or others for as long as we have been a country.

Why is it that if you believe in another religion or do not believe in anything you don't respect the believes of the majority of the people in this country? The old saying "when in Rome" comes to mind. If before a meeting in Iran a holy man says a prayer it’s'ok with me, before a game, before a camel race, it’s still ok with me. So for this is our country.

This being politically correct is so infantile it is sometimes funny. The ACLU should be disbanded in this country. They cause more conflict than any other group, they are minority run and controlled. The majority is what is supposed to rule in this country.

God help America.

Poll

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
