Choose your religion

Dear Editor:In her letter “The separation of church and state myth,” Ruth B. Perry asserts that, “The founders then wrote the first amendment for freedom of religion, not freedom from religion,” and, “It is plain to see Amendment I does not require or mention ‘separation of church and state.'” I have two questions. Since Ms. Perry thinks that American citizens do not have freedom from religion, what religion would she have us practice? My second question is, what religion would she have joined to (not separated from) the state? There are a few hundred from which to choose.Ramsey MelletteSnowmass
