Full Text

Dear editor, In the Nov. 10 Independent & Free Press, I read a letter by Mr. Wm. Pomeroy about him being upset that Prime Minister Stephen Harper says, "May God bless Canada". What's wrong with that? Mr. Pomeroy makes it sound like Harper is a puppet of president George Bush. The bad part is that Pomeroy is saying they should leave God south of the border. These days we hear a lot of antiGod talk, or is it that we hear a lot of hypocrisy, which, I grant, there is. I agree with what I recently heard a Baptist minister on TV say, that we have no patience with God and what happens in the world. If things do not change soon we have a tendency to blame God. Communism, the French Revolution and Hitler's Germany did not solve much, and we seem to forget. There are different ways to worship but for Christians or Muslims there is one supreme God and He will never be pushed out by anyone and will hear prayers if we stay humble. One can believe it and also experience it. John Kamminga, Acton
