Religious hypocrisy

Posted8/9/2019 1:00 AM

One of the main reasons my husband and I chose to raise our family in Wheaton is that God is welcome and celebrated here. And although the schools in District 200 are exceptional, we saw a disturbing trend of religious intolerance developing in the public schools, so we sent our children to Catholic schools. Not in our wildest dreams did we think it would escalate to where we are today.

Now we are being represented in the United States Congress by a proud atheist, Sean Casten. Even worse, he hypocritically appears to be favoring some religions over others. His Facebook posts celebrate the Buddhist festival of Asalha Puja and the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha. I thought atheists didn't believe in God (or gods). Which is it, Sean?


This is just one example of Sean Casten's misguided, hypocritical and disingenuous nature. I hope that the reckless, self-serving manner in which he is misrepresenting the 6th District will be fully exposed in the near future.
