To the editor:
It is disappointing that the Lawrence Journal-World published the inflammatory article by Leonard Krishtalka (Feb. 13).
His characterization of the scholarly Pope Benedict XVI as “sanctimonious,” “mealy mouthed” and “hypocritical” is offensive not only to people of faith but to all people of good will.
Such writing is laden with prejudice, bias and vituperation which can only hinder the pursuit of truth.
People of faith are anxious to dialogue with others in an atmosphere of civil discourse.
