Thanks for menorah photo as celebration of faith

I would like to thank The Bulletin for the picture of the giant menorah on the front of the Dec. 10 local news section.

No, I am not Jewish. I am Christian.

I would not care if The Bulletin displayed a picture of a menorah, cross, Buddha, Christmas tree, Native American totem pole, Easter Bunny, Santa Claus or manger scene. If any of these symbols offend you, do not drive down Third Street in Prineville. Second Street also goes through town.

The First Amendment of the Constitution guarantees any American freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion.

Please do not try to take away my cross or manger scene. I will not try to take away your religious or non-religious symbol.
