I say go ahead and send it in, just make sure to put both your name and the Peoria Secular Humanist Society on it, so that it shows that you wrote it representing the group. Also, they only accept one submission per author every 8 weeks so just putting out name on it could prevent them from publishing anything else from the group for 8 weeks.

I agrre with Jane.
I liked Bill's reply to the article in the paper. It's precise, short and non-agressive.
Regarding the letter we discussed the other night, this is a response I wrote that we could consider submitting to the newspaper.
We are writing in response to the March 11th letter decrying marriage equality by Edward L. Hoffman. Being as charitable as possible to his argument, Mr. Hoffman was expressing concern over the moral legacy our society will leave to later generations.
We too care deeply about the future and want to leave behind a better, more moral society. To that end we think it is better to be guided by principles grounded in compassion rather than fear, empathy rather than intolerance, and equality rather than discrimination.
Acceptance of marriage equality is to us a manifestation of those humane principles and is a moral legacy that good hearted people can be proud of leaving to future Americans.
Respectfully,The Peoria Secular Humanist Society
Here is the letter the Journal Star published that prompted the discussion the other night and the above response:
