PRAYER SUIT SHOWED INTOLERANCE

To the editor:

The story, "Impact of prayer ruling may reach far," in the Deseret News March 5, is appalling. The essence of religious tolerance is tolerance. The purpose of this lawsuit was to ensure that prayer is not tolerated at public meetings. This is not tolerance; it's intolerance.The pretext of the suit, that public money is being "appropriated for religious worship," is a sham. This lawsuit wasn't about money, it was about religious expression (or, more appropriately, the denial thereof).

Respect for the beliefs of others is just common courtesy; Americans lower themselves when they forget that.
