Letter: Ahrens’ letter inspires reading, enlightenment

Our compliments to Mr. Ahrens for his “Letter to the Editor” Friday regarding separation of church and state. My husband and I started the day by researching his thought-provoking statement that this term has been widely taken out of context. We re-read the Constitution in its entirety, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence and Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists.

Thank you for publishing an editorial letter with educational value. What an excellent example of the power of the press to inspire critical thinking and examination of worthwhile subjects.
