We would like to be counted among the people of Idaho who do not agree with Senator Sheryl Nuxoll’s blatant and outlandish statements and actions against the Hindu Prayer in the statehouse. Hers and our shared Catholic faith seems to be planets apart! Senator Nuxoll stated that this is a “Christian Country!” We’re not sure where this is coming from as one of the precepts of the founding of the U.S. is Freedom from Religion and Freedom of Religion - not Christianity! This statement was anti-American as this country is for all people. We, as citizens of the world believe all souls are important creatures of God. Being Catholic or any other religion does not make one special. The ability to love, open our hearts to and accept one another is the core of our faith. Is this all about playing to the big money industrialists who seem to really manipulate Idaho politics or to the Tea Party group to help fund the next campaign? We’re wondering?
