Church and state should be separate on all levels

To the editor:
So, if the U.S. government determines that it is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then so be it.
And if that same government decides that the Ten Commandments are not to be used in or on a government installation, then so be it.
And because they already have prohibited any prayer in schools, on which they deem their authority, then so be it. I say, "so be it," because I am a law-abiding U.S. citizen.
I say "so be it" because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.
I would like to think that those people have the American people's best interests at heart.
But you know what else I'd like.
Because we can't pray to God, can't trust in God and cannot post the Ten Commandments in government buildings -- a government that was founded under God -- I don't think the government and its employees should participate in Easter and Christmas celebrations that honor the God our government is eliminating from so many facets of American life.
I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday and Easter. After all, it's just another day.
I'd like the U.S. Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday and Sundays. After all, it's just another day.
I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives not to have to worry about getting home for "Christmas break." After all, it's just another day.
I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpaying dollars could be saved if all government offices and services would work on Christmas, Good Friday and Easter. It shouldn't cost any overtime because those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be politically correct.
What do you think?
