Irregular Times received an indignant piece of mail this morning:
If Muslims can pray on Madison Avenue, why are Christians banned from praying in public and erecting religious displays on their holy days?
Tell me again, whose country is this? Ours or the Muslims?
The answers are simple.
Christians can and do pray on Madison Avenue or any avenue they like.
Christians are not banned from praying in public, although their own Bible frowns upon this (read Matthew 6).
Christians are not banned from erecting religious displays on their holy days or any other days. Christian religious displays are visible year round in communities across the nation.
This country is not Yours, the Christians’. This country is not Theirs, the Muslims’. This country is Ours. Everyone’s.
