Letters to the Editor

No more religion letters

To the Editor:

A fellow reader recently wrote that he was glad to suddenly be able to discuss religion, owing to the fact that others had written to the Northwest Herald regarding religion.

Actually, religion is discussed in the letters to the editor ad infinitum. Said reader then wrote that “we now know none of the writers of the New Testament were eyewitness” to what or whom they wrote about.

Excuse me. We have pretty much understood this for 2,000 years. (I know, where does the time go?) Anyhoo, my point is this: There always have been places to discuss religion. Your living room. Your dining room. Bible camp. Bible study. Church. Perhaps in special religion pages in the newspapers.

But what in the Lord’s name is it doing in the letters to the editor column in the Northwest Herald? This space should remain an arena to rant about news and politics and how your neighbors are treating you. This is no place for entire passages from everybody’s bibles. Please, let’s keep it real.
