I am a Jew and proud of it. I attended Temple Beth Sholom classes, youth group and Hebrew instruction for most of my school years. I also was privileged to be able to spend a wonderful year in Israel.
However, I take high offense at your opposition to recognition of Christmas in its significance in the form of your "no" vote to House resolution 847.
Yet you supported the Oct. 2 resolution to recognize Moslem and Hindu holidays of Ramadan and Diwali, respectively.
I hope you recognize that our constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. I hope further that you recognize that we are guaranteed freedom of expression of our religions. I know that you do.
I feel that in these times, we are laboring under the tyranny of political correctness and you may be a victim of this as well.
Why allow some religions free expression and support from our government while denying it to others like Christianity. I am disappointed that a vital and progressive representative like you would even think towards this end.
