Will the real bigots please shut up. You are so offended by Rio Arriba County Commissioner James Martinez’s prayer before the Commissioners’ meetings that your intolerance of any Christian public expression is in full display. You are offended and hurt at what is to your own benefit.
Mistakenly, you assume that because he prays Christian prayers he is not doing his job as a commissioner. You want him to leave his religion at the door? Your intolerance and bigotry has blinded you.
Mr. Martinez is a kind and gentle man because of his Christian upbringing. He cares much for his community and is extremely diligent in carrying out his responsibilities to his constituents.
Your offense at Christian prayer only reveals your true intolerance toward Christianity. You act as if praying is keeping him from doing his job. Well, the halls of our nation’s Congress still echo the prayers of the Christian men and women who prayed through and worked hard to build this nation.
Shame on you. Your bigotry has blinded you. Enough of your public display of intolerance toward public Christian prayer. Ya basta.
