Religion should be kept out of city-owned park | Letter


On Sunday morning June 30 I went for a walk at Windjammer Park. I discovered that there was some kind of prayer meeting being conducted at the gazebo with the loudspeaker volume turned on “high” so they could be heard all over the park.

Surely religious events should not be permitted in a public park, owned by the city, at any time.

Remember, separation of church and state.
