Writer says put Lord’s prayer back in public schools

I am a veteran of the army that fought in the Second World War and also am a Canadian born and raised in Alberta.

Dear editor,

I am a veteran of the army that fought in the Second World War and also am a Canadian born and raised in Alberta.

I am very concerned with the steps taken to eliminate the Lord’s prayer from our schools on account of several women writing and making a big fuss over their children being exposed to religion through the reciting of this prayer. If you will check Matthew chapter 6 you will find the Lord’s prayer as it is recommended by Our Lord Jesus Christ.

I suggest that it will not be long before someone else will be “offended” by the singing of “O Canada.”

I went to war and fought for the freedom of people that were not free because the government of Germany decided that God was not in charge. Be careful that you do not make the same mistake and end up wishing that you had not listened to someone advocating the elimination of everything that we as a Christian nation hold dear.

Again let me caution you that a few people with very bad ideas can cause changes which are not acceptable by people that fought for freedom in the Second World War.

I believe we have the right to protest this action taken by the school district.

Cecil H. Colwell,

Wetaskiwin
