This letter to the editor was not posted online but appeared in the print version of The Reflector this week:
It's about time someone spoke up and I was glad to see Norma Lahti's tolerance in religion opinion article April 6, 2005.
She hit the nail on the head. These so called "Christians" insulting others, their youth smoking like chimneys and leaving their cigarette butts and trash in the parking lot between the Starbucks and Fred Meyer store. It's ugly and disrespectful.
I notice the parking lot to the Old Apostolic Lutheran Church is locked. Is that to prevent their youth from loitering and littering their own property? Okay to hang out, but they should clean up after themselves.
Children are the windows of their home and a reflection on their parents, their church, and their community. Time to get out the Windex.
