Brotherly love and goodwill?
To the Editor:
It’s getting close to Christmas, which means it’s time, once again, to meet Mr. and Mrs. Radical Right Christian.
They attend Church each Sunday and want more God in everyone’s life, but check your email, there is never a nasty rumor they won’t spread or a war they don’t support.
They heard Rush and other conservatives say the Pope now talks like a Marxist and they agree. What right has the Pope got to talk about social justice, and greed and criticize conservative trickle-down economics? They ask indignantly, adding He ought to be spending his time talking about the teachings of Jesus, instead!
They hope efforts to bring health care to millions fails and they wish everyone could watch yet another yearly report by John Stossel of Fox News warning about the dangers of giving to the poor, especially at this time of the year.
If only we could all follow the Biblical principles of brotherly love and goodwill among men, they pray, as they listen to their favorite talk-show host, John DePetro.
And they wonder, who is behind the war on Christmas?
