Atheist's column at Christmas was offensive

“Hats off” to the Daily Star for once again printing a column that was disrespectful and inconsiderate to many of its loyal readers.

I am sure I speak for the majority of Christians in our area who found Emily Popek’s atheist reflections on Christmas dated Dec. 12 quite offensive.

It is not my intent to persuade Ms. Popek regarding spiritual matters. I merely wish to point out the poor judgment exercised by the editorial staff of The Daily Star for printing her column the week before the Holy Day of Christmas.

I wonder if The Daily Star would choose to print anti-Semitic or anti-Islamic stories prior to Rosh Hashanah or Ramadan? I think not! However, being Christian, I will pray my Jewish and Muslim brothers and sisters never experience the same insensitivity.
