Canadian Paul Kokoski’s attack on Freemasonry (“Reject Freemason-led church, state separation,” Letters to the Editor, Thursday) was a not-very-subtle attack on the Founders of the United States, most of whom were themselves Masons who intentionally created a secular government with separation of church and state to safeguard the religious freedomsof all Americans.

Mr. Kokoski rather bizarrely insulted Protestants and Jews for supporting church-state separation, which is interesting because Mr. Kokoski’s Canadian province of Ontario is guilty of discriminating against Protestants and Jews in educational matters.

I am not a Mason myself, but I don’t think we need foreigners criticizing American values and institutions in our newspapers.
