The writer of the letter published Dec. 14 advised us to speak up when hate speech is spewed.

So I am speaking up. Against the writer’s hate speech.

Her letter begins innocently enough with talk of freedom of speech and worship, things we all believe. Well, apparently not all of us, definitely not her. Because what follows from the writer is not the condemnation of the vicious and senseless terror attacks in California.

Nope, we are treated to a diatribe about the awful Christians, you know, the pro-life ones who murder in the name of their belief.

Her letter is exactly what the terror is about: intolerance, in this case, of Christians. I suppose Christians are just supposed to continue to be quiet. Well, I am a Christian, and categorizing me as a slave-owning, self-righteous crusading murderer is beyond bizarre. So I am not going to be quiet.

Instead of politicizing terror and comparing the terrorists to Christians (which will continue to divide our country), how about facing up to the fact that we are all facing a huge problem?

As a country we have been targeted for destruction, and it is not the Christians issuing the threat.
