Letters: Shame on you, New Braunfels
I read an article in the Express-News that appalled me to my very being. I used to think of New Braunfels as a wonderful city to visit and enjoy all that it has to offer. No longer do I think that. I will think of it as being a sad city that has fallen to those that want to take Christ out of everything.
The article that disgusted me was the fact that religious content on signs has New Braunfels city officials worried! It seems that there is a songfest going to be held in that city. The songfest was going to have religious choirs from several congregations and they had intended to have a banner saying “Keep Christ in Christmas.” All permits needed were in place.
But it seems they cannot do this, as these words had already been banned by the city, as the banners that used to hang over the city with the same quote were banned by some groups. It seems that the law said this was due to the separation of church and state!
It is bad enough that Obama saw to it that no Christian decorations were allowed on the White House tree. Now a city so near to me is doing the same thing as far as not allowing banners with the name of Christ on it. This world is in a sad enough state, but to take Christ out of the celebrations of peoples makes me ill at heart.
I know that Madalyn Murray O’Hair must be laughing in her grave that her hatred of God and all that He stands for is being taken away from things in this nation. I know that those who do not believe are also happy with themselves, but I do know one thing. This lady will go to heaven, and the others with such hatred in their hearts will have a sad time in their very warm place that is promised to them.
