Hudsonville: God's Country

This one is shaping up to be a GR Press Public Pulse classic.

The story is this: the mission statement for Hudsonville's government calls on it "to serve God". This is entirely fitting for a conservative community where mowing your lawn on Sunday is looked down upon. It's also probably illegal (at least technically).

Nevertheless, someone complained to the Freedom From Religion Forum and they have asked Husonville to remove the language. Hudsonville is consulting its lawyers but the letters are starting to pour in, including one asking the anonymous complainant to show himself.

Here's an issue to lay off. Leave the righteous to their righteousness. Our protestations just egg them on; they like nothing better than to feel embattled. If they're really a threat, there's no better tactic than to ignore them.
