Wall between church and state being torn down

I am writing in support of Chuck Flippo's Feb. 20, letter in The Daily News Opinion page. The current administration has been pushing religious privileges under the guise of religious freedom. lt sickens me to listen to his words spoken at the prayer breakfast. He is actively tearing down the wall between church and state, a principle that was instrumental in our government's foundation. I would go Mr. Flippo's argument one better. He argues for an "opt out" option, but there should not be any kind of religious function being supported with tax dollars in the first place.
