o7What are your thoughts on a federal court judge's ruling last week that the "under God" reference in the Pledge of Allegiance" is unconstitutional? f7 "In God We Trust" is our national motto. It is on our currency, in our National Anthem, and is expressed in our Declaration Of Independence as the rationale for our existence as a nation of equality. "In God We Trust" is part of our DNA as Americans. It demands no particular denominational allegiance, nor does it command particular individuals to rightly bow before its divine referent.

Jay Grant I like to brag. In fact, most people I know like to brag. Bragging wells up within us when we are proud of something. When I was a kid, I bragged about Stan Musial, first baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals. "He's the best player in the major leagues," I used to crow as I traded baseball cards with my buddies. "Nobody can hit like him." When I got a little older, I bragged about my '56 Chevy Nomad. "Man, this car is bitchin'. Just look at how beautiful it is. There isn't another car on the road I would rather own."

Barbara Diamond Don't expect to see only crosses, Stars of David or shafts of sunlight through the clouds in "100 Artists See God," the exhibit that opened Sunday at Laguna Art Museum. Those are icons of religion, and the show is about the artists' very personal views of God in 16 contexts. They see God everywhere, in many forms, as the extraordinary force of nature, as light, as love, as a tyrant, in the flesh, as word, as ineffable, as mother, an architect, an organizer, a miracle worker, as someone who suffers.

Niko Theris I would like to comment on three statements made in Dale Fincher's letter, "Everyone should have open minds," Coastline Pilot, Oct. 22. First, Fincher states, "it was Ted Bundy who claimed that he murdered 40 women because he couldn't justify the value of human life based on his secular education." Does Fincher imply that grade-school students who are receiving a secular education are potential mass murderers? That the value of human life is beyond the comprehension of those who are secular?

Evan Marmol What would any man do if bestowed with the omnipotence of God? What if that person was the zany, arm flailing, face contorting, spastic Jim Carrey? "Bruce Almighty" dares to answer this question as an insidiously funny flick. Always wickedly funny, there are no limits to Carrey's antics. With Jim Carrey as God, and at least half of the Ten Commandments being broken, this film never fails to supply the laughs. No one can conceivably portray the supreme blasphemer better than Jim Carrey.

Joan Crawford. Katharine Hepburn. Loretta Young and Tyrone Power. Pre-moustache Clark Gable. A very young and dapper Ray Milland. The list of Tinseltown's glitterati continues. Movie buffs interested in striking photos of the glittering ones would do well to take in "George Hurrell: Laguna to Hollywood" at the Laguna Art Museum until April 28. Black-and-white and sepia-toned photos Hurrell made of movieland's icons trace the artist's creative journey between 1925 and 1944, though Hurrell's run at glamour photography spanned more than six decades.

Re. David Hansen's column, "Churches try to save themselves," April 13: While it is true that over the past 10 years attendance has dropped 10% to 20% in mainline denominations, Mr. Hansen fails to mention that other expressions of Christ's church are growing and even exploding in attendance. Many Independent, Evangelical, Charismatic and Pentecostal churches are seeing numbers increase, certainly here in America, but even more so in other nations, particularly Africa where revival is sweeping many countries.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following letter was sent to the Church by the Sea on Feb. 15. Many of you were able to attend a meeting we had after church this past Sunday. I wanted to write you all this week to follow up with more detail, and also to inform those of you who were not able to attend about some important news. Most of you are aware that Margy and I are from the Midwest, and that our families still live in the Chicago and northern Indiana areas.

JAMES PRIBRAM "I'll send an SOS to the world ... I hope that someone gets my message in a bottle." -- THE POLICE If it were only so easy I would bare my soul and scream to the world. My mind stops and then my thoughts begin to wonder. I search for perspective on current world events. Arnold is now governor? "Vote for me or I will break you," he says in his deep Terminator voice. I can't help but laugh out loud. Governor? I'm still laughing. Honestly, I can't stop laughing, but then my worries go on. This world is beginning to scare me. Is religion our killer?
