I was working my way through a newspaper this morning and noted the front page article on Easter and how some churches around the valley are celebrating. While I was on my mission, the whole politically correct thing of only saying Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas so as not to offend anyone happened. I found it to be pretty interesting that we as a country with freedom of religion are trying so hard to be free of religion.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, more commonly known as the Mormons. I'm not especially ashamed of that fact, and I really wish that people would stop trying to make me feel so. I enjoy studying other religions. I have attended other churches and intend to continue doing so, because I just enjoy it. I am glad that we haven't reached the point in Cache Valley where talking about Easter on the front page of the newspaper isn't taboo. I'm glad that at this point we have freedom of religion and not freedom from religion.
Ben Stein said it better.
