Saturday I read your article and agreed (Hammer, “It’s Getting Uglier,” Oct. 15-22), reflecting on a phone call from an old friend who lives in Mooresville. He had complained about a church member who told him true Christians only vote Republican. He was disheartened that his services were less about Jesus and now included hateful rhetoric about the danger to America by non-Christians. I told him to reply that he was a Jimmy Carter Christian (love all) and did not want to be a right-wing Reagan Christian (love us and hate those who are not like us).
On Sunday morning I looked out my window and saw proof of the next step forward for the right. My OBAMA/BIDEN sign had been smashed. While straightening it out I found that Sen. Obama’s name had been stabbed and slashed. I live in a subdivision and other signs were also attacked. So I repaired it, left the slash and put a small sign above the stab with the letters WWJD. So the right is giving up on fascism and going into anarchy to prove their way is better than peace and God’s will.
I moved my sign closer to my house but I worry they may shoot my window. GOD, guts and guns — so good to always be right!
