What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Yes. Me, too. Thanks for the comments!

What's interesting is that my father calls himself a non-believer. And yet, I can talk to him about religion for hours, and never get in an argument. He respects people's beliefs, even when he does not share them. I speak to others in my family, and we argue too much.

My mother phoned me today to tell me that our family was 'taking over the editorial page'. Apparently, mine was published in today's paper, and one of my father's was in yesterday!

You can tell where I got my desire to make my opinions public, and stand up for what I believe, right?

I agree. Especially as he was talking about letters to the editor - they go with all letters to the editor. I may not agree with all letters that are in there - in fact, I usually disagree with most. But I will defend a person's right to speak their mind. Just as I expect the same right to speak mine.

So, I read a letter to the editor in our local newspaper yesterday. In it, the writer was complaining about letters to the editor that are on the topic of faith. This person felt that such letters belonged only in the 'Faith' section of the newspaper (published once weekly). I wrote back that by the same token, letters to the editor about sports should be in the sports section, and ones about nutrition in the weekly food section. I then took it further to say that letters to do with the headlines on the front page should be placed there for all to see! I concluded by saying that letters to the editor are just that, and as such should be in the editorial section of the paper no matter the topic!

The newspaper office left a message with me today, so I think they will publish it in tomorrow's newspaper.

It really bugs me when people try to compartmentalize religion and faith. If it is not in the public eye, do they think it will 'go away'? That they don't have to consider such topics? It seems pretty ridiculous. I wonder if this person is an atheist, and if they would feel the same way if someone wrote something that expressed their beliefs, if they would wish it 'elsewhere' in the paper?
