Letter to the Editor

Two op-ed pieces?

NipomoNovember 18, 2013 

This is the second time The Tribune has published on op-ed piece from Atheists United, Freedom from Religion, et al.

Please stop. In publishing two of their op-ed pieces, you are in fact exhibiting an opinion. If The Tribune wants to take a position on this, then be bold and publish an editorial one way or the other.

I find it difficult to believe that no one from the Pismo Beach City Council or any other Pismo Beach citizen has taken a position that opposes the suit by AU-SLO, Freedom from Religion or any other alphabet soup entity that is offended by prayer (Christian or otherwise).

Suffice it to say, these folks may have a strictly legal point to make, but if the issue merits two op-ed pieces, as opposed to a common letter to the editor in your view, then publish an editorial and give someone else a voice. Political correctness needs to be stricken from our society forever.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
