Clay Ten Commandmants Flap

Dear Editor,

I had to weigh in on Terri Baur's reported comments in your article concerning displaying the Ten Commandments in Clay County.

The quote states, "The complainant is a non-Christian who feels unwelcome in a governmental environment that endorses a particular religion..."

The Ten Commandments are not exlusive to Christian religion. I am sure that many of your readers are aware of that fact, but apparently the attorney for the ACLU needs to be apprised of that fact.

I doubt that either Jews or Muslims would be offended at the display since the commandments are also a part of their religions.

Because I could not contact this individual personally, I have sent these comments to your address. I hope that someone will set Terri Baur straight.
