LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
I am responding to George Weigel’s July 4 column “Religious liberty and its contemporary enemies,” which appeared in our Michigan Catholic newspaper.

I have learned from my experiences that many major problems were caused by ages of self-inflicted ways of disunity within the Christian communities. We are weakened and ineffective in this state and most of the Christian faithful just don’t get it. We are far from being of one mind and one flock.
The Founding Fathers were right to implement the “no establishment,” “free exercise” of religion because the churches were wrong in their disunity.
The absolute attributes of Spiritual Unity reveal the divine source of truth through revelation, not speculation. Many secular scientific concepts can be proven incorrect, such as creation of man, the universe, space, etc., in light of the almighty power of Spiritual Unity that is in everything everywhere.
