Yes, great tolerance in America. The tactic of choice here is to sue to repress the Christian faith, not burn the New Testament. Oh well, it is progress I guess.

I wouldn't dismiss it simply as a "stupid thing". While that was really stupid to do in terms of relationship with the Christians, the sentiment, I think, is genuine.
Appreciates piece on Chanukah
POSTED: Dec. 21, 2001 4:51 p.m.
Thanks for the article, "WNC's small Jewish community to celebrate festival of lights," (AC-T, Dec. 8) about Chanukah. Thanks so much for taking time out to highlight this important holiday for our Jewish community. Perhaps, in the future, you might want to re-word dates when talking about a Jewish event. The Maccabee revolt happened in 165 B.C.E. (Before Common Era) to those it matters most to; saying 165 B.C. (Before Christ) is a bit of a smack in the face.
