Many religious groups believe God is everywhere, but Redondo Beach lawyer J. Bud Mirassou thinks God's presence is lacking in public parks. Mirassou is executive director of the newly formed American Spiritual Liberties Union, a nonprofit law center in Redondo Beach that is dedicated to "putting God in public places." The center, which opened in September, provides legal support to religious groups seeking to express themselves on public property, including city parks and schools.

It is obvious that the ASLU (American Spiritual Liberties Union, South Bay Edition, Nov. 25) is endeavoring to put a liberal spin on what is really a stealth attempt by the ostensible religious right to seduce the South Bay cities into acting as its agent to promote its religious agenda. Contrary to Mr. (J. Bud) Mirassou's statement, "God" is a substantially divisive factor, not a universally unifying concept. Just look at Northern Ireland, Bosnia and the Middle East. What really unites us in our country is a mutual respect for the diversity among the beliefs of others, a position adopted by our government in the doctrine of separation of church and state, under which it remains neutral in recognition of that diversity.
