Sound off for Aug. 18, 2013
The Suisun City Council will open its Aug. 27 session with a Hindu prayer, led by the leader of the Nevada-based Universal Society of Hinduism.
Here are some comments from our website about an article on the subject:
- This kind of news makes me happy to be a Suisun resident of 30 years. We are a model for tolerance and gestures like these send a message that we want all people, regardless of faith, to thrive. Most importantly, we teach our kids equality above anything else.
- What happened to separation of church and state? If a Bible were opened, there would be people marching up and down outside the council chambers like it was burning down.
- Wow, impressed by the Suisun City Council. Cool if they can get positive representation from the local religions and perhaps moment of silence. Invocation or moment of silence could be done by faith group or atheist representative. Love to see them be so inclusive of the full community.
