Alice Shannon of Soldotna had sent in an interesting letter to the editor (Clarion, Jan. 29) on the subject of atheists. Based on the message, it seems that she might have felt right at home in a nation that in the 1930s reinstated school prayer and did other things on her list in response to the perceived moral decay caused by encroaching secularism.
To put things in perspective and consider the implications of emulating such precedents, it might be instructive to know that the nation in question was Germany and we all know how well that turned out.
