What about separation of church and state?

By From page A5 | July 03, 2013

EDITOR:
Although I may differ politically and socially from Sam Pierson and Todd White, I appreciate the freedom of speech that America embraces. I represent the tolerant, accepting, embracing American.

Mr. White and Mr. Pierson should clearly be aware of the constitutional responsibility of separation between church and state. Simply, discussion of God, any God or personal American political dogma, can not and should not be discussed, presented or allowed during a public high school graduation ceremony. Wrong place, wrong time for such pontification. Alternatively we can allow our teachers and their union to clearly express religious, political and social views to our students on a daily basis if Mr. Pierson and Mr. White had their way.

Fight is on for re-election Mr. White.

    You are the epitome of hypocrisy. You espouse tolerance, yet are intolerant. Please read the 1st amendment to our Constitution. It does NOT state Separation of Church and State, it states Freedom of Religion, among other important rights, like Freedom of Speech. Why did America separate itself from England? Perhaps you may want to read our Declaration of Indepence while you're at it. (That would be the event and document we celebrate on July 4th.) And honestly, you don't think the unions have infiltrated and permeated our schools and are pontificating to our children? We apparently live in alternate parallel universes.
