Okay, Herb, let's go through your rebuttal:
1) I know what "sacred" means. When you quoted Dictionary.com, you gave us the first three definitions but conveniently left out the last four. Here they are:
5. regarded with reverence: the sacred memory of a dead hero.
6. secured against violation, infringement, etc., as by reverence or sense of right: sacred oaths; sacred rights.
7. properly immune from violence, interference, etc., as a person or office.
2) Your Apache literature comes from History of Arizona by Thomas Edwin Farish, whom I believe is a non-Indian historian. The book was published in 1918. I wouldn't trust any white man's retelling of an Indian legend, especially not one that old.
Farish was supposedly quoting Geronimo's autobiography. But non-Indians undoubtedly transcribed and edited Geronimo's words before they were printed. So we're talking about one, two, or more layers of filtering between a genuine Apache source and Farish's text.
Killing dragon = praying to God?
3) Most important, the passage you quoted refers to an Apache boy's duel with a deadly dragon. There's no real mention of a god or anything sacred until after the story's end. The rain starts falling because the dragon died, not because the Creator responded to the boy's plea for help.
Here's the context of the quote in your letter:
Immediately storm clouds swept the mountains, lightning flashed, thunder rolled, and the rain poured. When the rainstorm had passed, far down in the canyon below, they could see fragments of the huge body of the dragon lying among the rocks, and the bones of this dragon may still be found there.
4) Finally, it's hard to believe your goal was to point out the narrowmindedness of Christians who believe only in Jesus. It sure sounded to me like you wanted a tit-for-tat retaliation. I.e., if the ACLU gets the Ten Commandments banned, you want the license plate banned.
My mistake if you actually support Oklahoma's choice of plate. I'm with you if you want our society to be more multicultural, less dominated by Christians. We've had enough of conservative hypocrites (e.g., Vitter, Engisn, Sanford) who push Christian morality onto others while they continue to sin.
But I'm guessing you don't care about the license plate. You want only to see the Ten Commandments preserved. Feel free to write again and let us know.
