I wanted to let you know that I appreciated your column. I am a Christian (and one that is OK with respectful proselytizing). Yet I cannot help but agree with your stance, as well as Mr. Ajabu's in this matter. It is not fair to privilege the access of one religious group above others, even in Chilliwack. Perhaps there could be a yearly fair or group of speakers representing a spectrum of faiths, including atheists and agnostics, who also require faith to maintain their beliefs. That way, we can move toward a more equitable system. Of course I have strong convictions about the benefits of my own faith. However, the same could be said for anyone else, regardless of their beliefs. We all come to our beliefs for good reason.
