I simply don't care.
And I'm simply saying that those names are part of the state's heritage and should remain!

So you are essentially saying that dead traditions are more important than living people?
That even when 99.99% of the residents of a town want to change their town's name they are not allowed to?

Very few people want the names of those cities changed. The fraction that do are just some left wing looney, ACLU, foot soldiers for George Soros!

I'm simply saying that most people in those cities want the names to remain the same despite what some of the PC loonies say or think.

So you agree with me that the majority of the people in a democracy has the power to change things?

As if God would be offended by a woman feeding her baby.
What is that statement based on? How many churches have you been asked to leave for breast feeding? How many have you been in when someone else was asked to leave?. How many churches have you been in? I guessing the answer to these questions would be none. Women breast feed in my church.

Do you truly believe that all other Christian churches act like your church?

No, but the statement was "Christians made it impossible for women to breastfeed their babies in church." I'm sure my church is not the only one that allows breastfeeding.
