Freedom and Funding
While Tom Flynn and I do not share the same view on the purpose of the “wall” of separation between church and state, I do find myself agreeing with him in principle and specifics in “One (National) Step Back, One ( Local) Step Forward” (FI, February/March 2011). As a strongly conservative Christian, I am in full agreement with the statement “. . . No free man or woman should be forced to surrender his or her wealth to support the forcible imposition of religious creeds.” I do not want it imposed upon me, and I do not want it imposed upon others (and as a side note, it goes against the teachings of Christianity). It is a slippery slope, and the ramifications should scare anyone. But all that being said, I do not believe that no free man or woman should be forced to surrender his or her wealth to support those things that they have moral opposition to. When Flynn finds a solution to our mutual problem, let me know. I would love to hear it!
