In response to the letter regarding the idea that “ outlawing religion” would rid the world of all its evils, one word comes readily to mind, ABSURD!

If Michael Polito can so easily try, judge and convict all the religions of the world with such scanty evidence, perhaps he should seek employment with the U.S. Department of Justice. There, he could actively pursue and rid the world of all the nefarious evildoers that plague mankind.

My only wish is that he could have enlightened the world sooner so that we would not have had to endure the likes of Ganhdi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr. just to mention a few.
