LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Event’s not about Nugent, it’s about region

CedarCreek Church is thrilled to be a part of the Northwest Ohio Rib-Off. This is CedarCreek’s fourth year as a sponsor of the Free Family Fun Day.

We are aware of the controversy around Ted Nugent, his views, and his public comments. Mr. Nugent has made repugnant comments about our president, completely disrespecting the office and Mr. Obama. While we don’t agree with this language and deplorable disrespect, we must also respect his freedom of speech.

CedarCreek’s participation in this year’s Rib-Off isn’t about being for or against Mr. Nugent, racism, or human rights. It is about being for the Toledo area.

Free Family Fun Day on Aug. 10 will allow thousands of people to enjoy the Rib-Off, a 31-year Toledo tradition, for free. There will be great food and live music by the CedarCreek band. It’s an opportunity for us to show the love of God in our community, which we are so proud to be a part of.

Mr. Nugent and his repugnant words will leave town, but local residents will continue to improve our communities the only way we know how: together.

LEE POWELL

Senior Pastor

Cedar Creek Church
