As a resident of Richfield I am upset about allegations made by Beth. Contrary to her statement, the Hindu Temple DOES meet code specifications, and the only action the Planning Commission could legally take is to allow the plan. After the Commission ruled on this issue, Beth began a series of VERY personal attacks on members of the Commission and others who voiced their support of the Commission's action. She monopolized discussion at public meetings, crying and sobbing about the many hardships she would personally suffer if the Temple were built in the proposed location. She and her husband have put their house up for sale and plan to move out of the community. I say that Richfield will be a better Village without her, and I, for one, would welcome the Hindus with open arms. We are fortunate to live in a community that has always been open to everyone, and I hope never to see that change. Thanks for giving me a venue to express my point of view.
Well said. Richfield is a wonderful community and we have had no problems with our Hindu neighbors. They are wonderful, caring people and I wish for them to know that the vast majority of people support them. I am disgusted by Beth's behavior, and look forward to her move out of the community as well.

You lower yourself with ignorant statements like that. Are the Kettles neighbors of yours?
The reality is that the average American Christian couldn't give you 3 facts about Hinduism.

If you couldn't keep these out, you will not keep a Hindu temple out.
We allowed them to come here to America with 'open' arms-educated them 'all'; except for our own for 'free'.
Now the subtle takeover, because you did nothing about it but bury your head in the sand. Oh what's one more.
Well here we are, Revelation playing itself out.
Suffer your fate!
Methinks you missed your opportunity a few decades back in Europe. I hear there was a gentleman in power there then whose philosophies may have meshed quite well with yours.

My point is most Americans don't understand the difference between Muslims and Hindus, which brings into question whether their fear of the unknown is what's driving their opposition.

Beth claims the Planning Commission didn't do their job, and the planning commission says they have no reson to deny the plan.

If Beth is right, then no foul. If the commission is right, then I suspect the entire issue was based on fear.

Then who does? Monkeys? Are you saying we're monkeys? Or that we evolved from monkeys? Those are fighting words in Akron!
