This Just In -- Christianity is not a Minority Religion in this country!

Well, from the various bills that you see being filed here and there in legislatures, you would think that Christianity was just hanging on by its finger nails, would you not? There are all kinds of little bills to help Christian prayer in schools or keep God in the Pledge of Allegiance, keep those little manger scenes out on the courthouse lawn at Christmas time. If you were an alien and just dropped in from Mars, you would imagine that Christianity was some dying breed of religion that had hardly any adherents left. I was very taken by a letter to the editor in the Boston Globe today proposing a little equity in supporting religion. Let's be more even-handed. If we are going to have those stone Ten Commandments in the Courthouses and crosses in the schoolhouse, I think we ought to consider having some Hindu goddesses and Buddha figures represented. Anybody like to nominate some other gods or religious figures?
