I sincerely hope that by now you have found out that atheists are full fledged citizens that you are bound to represent. That also they be very good people who choose not to place faith in old myths often absorbed by other religions.
I didn’t really find your facebook post offensive, however I do find the ten commandments monument at city hall a violation of the constitution of the United States.
My wish is that through this experience, you may find that making government work can involve all of the people you are charged with representing, and that you may find many more allies amoungst non-theists.
I have been involved in feminist and gay rights issues, and feel that those things have enahnced my life. You might not agree right away, but please give all of your constituents a chance. I am also a Vietnam Era Veteran.
I also realise that ideology, psuedo think tanks, and corporate interests have made things hostile. It does not need to be that way.
I have been in attendance at the colorado supreme court over amendment two, and have attended Grand Junction City Council meetings regarding the old junk ordinance and the (misnamed) Patriot Act.
I hope that you can accept that there is a way to make politics civil again.
I really mean it when I say “Good Luck” and that you may call on me to help in any way I can.
Yours truly: Michael Morris
