Letter to the editor: Religious rebuttal

Thanks to the Nov. 11 letter writer, helping make my point about the need to preserve religious freedom in America, including in its religious schools. Neither Jeffco, nor the State of Colorado, has the kind of voucher system he imagines. I have long supported such a voucher program and hope the governor will advance such a program. Rather, parents who pay for their children to attend private schools...also continue to pay their taxes that support the public school system. They are double-paying to get the education they desire for their children. Parents in Jeffco get no voucher from the state to use at the school of their choice.
Of course the letterwriter was being derogatory when he suggested my “ilk” should stay inside our churches/embassies “until the charter is revoked.”  But Americans’ freedom of worship is established in the First Amendment to the Constitution. And people in God’s church are called to be salt and light in their communities, not to scrape and bow to big government mandates that restrict personal, religious or medical freedom.
