To the Editor:

When Duncan Kilmartin takes out his Bible in the Judiciary Committee Room and quotes Leviticus directly from it, where is the separation of church and state? This actually happened Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2001, following the heartfelt and deeply personal testimony of Bari Shamas. I was appalled at his actions and more so in the actions of the committee chairwoman, Peg Flory, who did nothing to stop this inappropriateness.

Let us keep in mind our constitution protects the separation of church and state. However, we need representatives and chairs to committees that will uphold the constitution and draw the line where that separation needs to occur.

Sincerely,

Mark E. Emmons
