Mario DeOliveira's letter to the editor, which mentions NYC Atheists by name, was published in the Journal News (Westchester) of November 5, and has won $50 in the NYC Atheists Dollars for Letters to the Editor program (see below):

Why Shouldn't Church Have to Prove Claims?

Regarding Gary Stern's Sunday article, "Critics: Claims in 'DaVinci Code' not fair to Catholicism":

Why is it that when any theory seems to critique religious institutions, it must require evidence? On the other hand, when religious institutions put forward their theories ("virgin births," "resurrections of the dead," etc.), no evidence is required? It is accepted on "faith."

Perhaps you should feature an article by experts in biology and science to critique the precepts of the Catholic church and the likelihood of virgins having children 2,000 years ago and men coming back from the dead. It would only be fair.

Mario DeOliveira, Yonkers
The writer is a member of New York City Atheists.


Joe Zamecki's letter to the editor was published in the New York Daily News of November 5:

Christian charity

Cranford, N.J.: Raymond and Vanessa Jackson apparently starved their children for years, and now their church stands behind them 100%. Where was this church when the Jackson kids were starving? [Note: the newspaper deleted the final sentence, "For that matter, where was their god?"]

I think that It would only be fair.

They saw the rubber mats on the floor near the dishwashing sinks and mop underneath. Since this amount is added before the customers have a chance to tip or not tip, the practice amounts to an automatic penalty for imperfect adobe voucher code English.
