Letter to the Editor

A recent letter to The Enterprise made rather wild accusations that seem divisive and were certainly overstated.

Our country has and is a nation that tolerates freedom of religion and even within Christianity there is much variety in understandings and opinions.

Faith communities do not all hone to any one particular set of dogmas, nor do its adherents all support the same political party. One of the dangers of today’s divisiveness is the assumption of “my way or the highway.”

People of differing political persuasions should not be seen as the enemy.

One could just as easily suggest that Republicans are fascists and authoritarians as to charge as was done accusing Democrats as communists. It seems to me our discussions would be more worthwhile and more likely listened to if we state our political and social justice preferences by naming actual facts that lead one to choose a particular way of thinking and voting.
