We are not a Christian nation

Frank Banta’s Letter to the Editor (December 19) is beyond belief.

How can anyone in this day and age be so close-minded to the concept of freedom of religion in the United States of America?

Yes, Banta, our country was founded on the concept of freedom to worship god of choice — not only Christianity — but any god of choice. No, Banta, we are not a Christian nation — we are a nation where people hold numerous religious beliefs, and read numerous testaments — Old Testament, Koran, Mahabharata, etc.

Nor do we have an official language spoken here. 

 That’s what America is all about, Banta. Get real.
