Christian prayer not way to go

ACCORDING to William S. Wheatman’s logic [Examiner, Letters, October 23], every time we write the date, we are acknowledging the existence of Jesus Christ.

Does that also mean that when we write the word Thursday we are acknowledging the Norse god of thunder?

Or when we write Easter we are acknowledging the pagan goddess of fertility?

Council’s refusal to acknowledge those constituents who are not Christians, and their insistence of praying to Jesus demonstrates they are out of touch with the modern demographics of Australia and the rising tide of secularism.

I am delighted to hear that Mr Wheatman has been asthma free and been able to play football since he prayed to Jesus at the age of 16.

It is a shame though that Jesus was not as impressed with the prayers of all those little children that did suffer from asthma and all the other terrible childhood afflictions and diseases and abuse.

I guess they just didn’t pray hard enough.
