Mr. Burkhead’s March 1 letter reminded me of all I objected to concerning organized religion. I feel organized religion too often leads to prejudice, intolerance, obsession and sometimes fanaticism. Also, too often it promotes ignorance due to a rejection of science because facts may contradict the Old Testament or the Koran.
I believe the true meaning of what Jesus actually stood for has been corrupted. The Jesus I know preached love, compassion and tolerance, not hate. People like the Phelps family and Mr. Burkhead illustrate what I mean by the corruption of the meaning of Jesus. Mr. Burkhead refers to the sin of our people and country for accepting gay rights. The real sinner, Mr. Burkhead, is you because of your hate and intolerance, and the terminal cancer you refer to is the ignorance you promote in your spiteful letters! You should repent for your twisted ideals!
