Letter: The only balance is no balance



Ralph Warren in his Aug. 19 letter, “Participation is balanced,” about Clark County Commissioners Tom Mielke and David Madore sponsoring public invocations, states “the example was set long ago by our Founding Fathers, etc.” The example set years ago was the U.S. Constitution. It and the founders, specifically Thomas Jefferson, separated church from state. Madore and Mielke are “state” and do not get to introduce their religion, church, invocations, into public meetings.

Warren’s, Mielke’s, or Madore’s belief of a God is a personal matter unrelated to public business. What Madore and Mielke really want is to be seen practicing it, like all phoney politicians.
