Church and State

LETTERS TO THE TIMES

November 15, 2004

Re "Evangelicals Want Faith Rewarded," Nov. 12: If you ever wanted proof of the wisdom of the concept of the separation of church and state, you only need to read the pronouncements coming from the religious right after the Nov. 2 election. As religious as our founding fathers were, they showed exceptional wisdom in recognizing the potentially destructive power of personal religious beliefs unleashed as political power. As we live in a world being threatened by religious extremists, we can only hope that we don't become one of them.
