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." —
“Hope I can see him...'peace and forgiveness'...that's really all that's needed.” —
From Neighboring Patch Towns:
“I am concerned that there are people with misplaced anger issues carrying guns. Is anyone paying attention here?” –
“At least we are not Chicago where there are 400,000 Ferris Buellers not in school.” –
“This shouldn't be a Republican or Democrat issue! Transparency is just a good fiscal responsibility to the residents of Shelton & Huntington who are being asked to approve more money, when they don't know where and how the original money was spent. Would you probably ask the same of your children before you gave them more allowance money.” –
