Again the Main Street Plaza has made the news as the City Council prepares to decide on the mayor's land-swap deal. I agree with it to a point. The church has already shelled out millions to buy it and maintain it. I don't see a problem there. But why is more required just so it can control what is its own land? Why does the ACLU care so much? Why isn't it concerned that people can't go onto the South Lawn of the White House and protest? Could the "A" in ACLU really stand for "atheist"? Let the church alone. Let's build bridges instead of burning them.
