Letter -- Inflammatory letters

March 16, 2014 

When incompetent editorial boards print inflammatory letters, attacking religious or ethnic groups this is counterproductive. Promoting hate in an attempt to help gays harms the gay community, especially among gay Christians.

If you believe Christianity is the cause of all evil in America's history, and should be illegal; then circulate this conviction in an initiative to be voted on. Remember that "Christianity" is not a monolith. It's a consortium of diverse, even contradictory, doctrines, interpretations and traditions. Any blanket ideological criticism could not possibly apply to all Christian groups, even if it would apply to one.
