'Your Column is Sort of Like "Bombing for Peace"'

A look at some of the comments left by Patch account holders.

From Brookfield Readers:


You seem to have done a pretty good job of attacking people who think differently from you, that you, dare I say it, "strongly, strongly dislike".

You say you want to defeat 'hate'. Your column is sort of like 'bombing for peace."

Mahatma Gandhi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world."

If the opposite of hate is love, then try love.

Perhaps you could rewrite your column. Instead of attacking those horrible, dastardly, evil people who think differently than you..(which you seem to think is O.K.)...you might try understanding them. You might take a conciliatory approach and (gasp) even find something good to say about them...

That would be a good, first step toward defeating hate." —
