Opposes decision

To the Editor: I am 63 years old, a veteran and patriotic American citizen.

One of the reasons I served my country was to protect the separation of church and state. The county officials of Henderson County want to have the Bible as the law of the land. Not the Constitution. I intend on putting a stop to that in court.

I have already notified all of them, and the Keep Athens Beautiful committee, that if the Nativity scene is put up again on government property, I will file a lawsuit to remove it.

Thank you,

Patrick Greene
