Prayer case reflects intolerance

November 07, 2013

The recent article about the two woman taking a case to the Supreme Court because they did not like the Christian prayers at town board meetings in Greece, New York perhaps epitomizes the ills of American society ("Supreme Court to hear case on separating church and state," Nov. 2). At a time when Christians are demanded to be tolerant of every vice under the sun, these two woman refuse to show tolerance in kind because they "felt like outcasts" when the prayers were being recited.

Are they really attending these board meetings to help solve the town's problems? One wonders just how well these women would be received in a Muslim country.
