I agree with Dennis Dunham of Myrtle Beach (“Answering the prayer challenge,” Oct. 17) that we should all stand up by kneeling down and by practicing our religious virtues without sacrificing our moral rights as American citizens. The end zones of football fields are perfect places for all American citizens to do so.
I propose that the end zones be divided up into sections so every player, fan and American citizen has a place to go to pray. We would need a section each for the all the Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Christians, Satanists and other religious and spiritual views of American citizens. And possibly we could include a couch on the 50-yard line for all those with no religious views. Or maybe we could include the symbols of all the religions on the goal posts so that all could kneel down and practice their moral rights to their religious views together (except those on the couch, of course).
After all, our great nation was founded on the freedom to practice your own religion (or to not practice at all) without fear of repression or repercussions, and we all know how far that has gone for the rights of all American citizens.
Never miss a local story.
