letters to the editor

In the June 20 issue of the ACUH, Barb Anderson of Champlin offered proof responding to my previous letter regarding the U.S. being a Christian Nation. She supplied some examples; I offer the following comments on some of them:

With all that’s wrong with Washington, is sending another lawyer lobbyist to D.C. going to fix anything? Is Tom Emmer really the best choice to replace Michele Bachmann? Name one thing Emmer has accomplished?

I am writing to get the word out that the City Council of Oak Grove is going to have a final vote on June 30th, 2014 for a “ conditional use permit.” The permit is for an insurance auto auction business to operate out of the former lumber facility located at County Highway 22 (Viking Boulevard) and Tamarack Street Northwest. The permit will allow them to have approximately 3,000 damaged insurance vehicles at the facility to auction.

I have been fighting for some time to make this a public affair but I can no longer stand the bullying that our small businesses are receiving from the city of Nowthen Council.

We are writing to tell you about the United Educators Credit Union in Coon Rapids. We are learning how to count money and make change. EUCU brought a fun store to Sand Creek for three days.

In reading the May 15th article in the Union, one easily could have been left with the impression that the whole of Anoka County was at the board meeting to defend the district’s music program, given the opening, “After public outcry…the…board restored full-time band directors…” This feeling of urgency to defend the music program was reinforced by board member Heidemann’s quote, “if there’s a program at risk and it’s valued…the status quo and …treating it the same as everybody else isn’t the right solution.” Rest assured Mr. Heidemann, you and the board have not treated this music program as “everybody else” and not even close to the status quo.

The letter from Barb Anderson of May 16 caught my attention. Ms. Anderson makes the statement that our founding fathers took principles from the Bible and incorporated them into our government with the intent of making this a Christian nation.

Even though I am not Catholic, I can see that Owen Strand’s April 25 letter contains so much misinformation about the Catholic church that it is hard to know where to begin with a 350 word limit. Instead, I will address another of Strand’s false claims about“…our constitutional separation of church and state.”

Jeff Baumann (Be careful what you wish for, April 11) makes some easy dodges as he fails to answer my letter. The Arizona bill was incompetently written and deceptively defended by the religious right, as my letter noted. Mr. Baumann would do well to not deflect my criticisms onto unrelated Christians. The religious right needs to take responsibility for its actions.
