Florida student's stand on respect for religion merits applause

June 29, 2013 

Thank you, Shirley Bohne, for your June 24 letter of concern about the young man in one of our major universities who was threatened to be expelled because he refused to stomp on a piece of paper placed on the floor in the classroom by the professor with the words "Jesus Christ" written on it.

What a shame to hear of instructions being taught to our youth!

Our Declaration of Independence celebration is coming up soon; it's all about freedom to worship as we please. Help me never forget.
