I have a question about a sentence in the editorial titled, “Get that religion out of here quick!” (Aug. 6). “Both cases (Evansville and Ball State University) involve claims by detractors (who are the detractors and why?) that permitting certain activities (crosses on public property in Evansville and teaching intelligent design as science at Ball State) amounts to government establishment of religion in violation of the Second Amendment (First Amendment?).”

The parentheses are mine.

The “detractors,” as used in the editorial, are those claiming that tier constitutional rights are being violated. How can such be a detraction?

How can the two challenges be “pointless fights over trivial causes,” to use the editorial’s words? Guns, huh?
