A Big Thank You To Barry Lynn.

I don't consider myself a hero worshipper ... but wait, if a hero is someone whom I respect and admire, then Barry Lynn is one of my heroes.

Each time I receive a Church & State issue, the first page I turn to is the one written by Barry Lynn. His gift for explaining difficult legal topics with clarity and brevity is unsurpassed.

And his book God & Government is an intellectual stimulant which I often refer to. My favorite part of its 300-plus pages is, "I have built most of my career on just two phrases: The sixteen words in the First Amendment that note 'Congress shall make no law respecting any establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; and Article 3's prohibition of any religious test for public office."

I've learned much from you, Rev. Lynn. Thank you for your untiring efforts to make certain that our country does not become a theocracy. I'll miss you.
