Here's a copy of my letter to Rochelle at re the "Quiet Room"

Reader comment on item: Disquiet about Philadelphia Airport's "Quiet Room"

Submitted by Dave (United States), Aug 17, 2020 at 21:54

Dear Rochelle,
Please complete the non-denominational transformation of the Quiet Room as suggested by Dr. Pipes. I sometimes transit that airport and I would like to be able to sit down (chairs please!) and relax in a room which is not only quiet in its lack of noise, but which is also silent about religion in its furnishings. I am a nervous flyer and do not like being reminded of other religions which may have a history of violence towards my ancestors or compatriots, since they make me think of dying, particularly when those reminders are financed by tax dollars, in violation of the First Amendment.
I think it best to scrap all religious paraphernalia and make it as secular as possible. Have a blessed day.
