An atheist responds to ‘ignorant duck hunter’ attack

<strong>By S. Lombardi </strong>

With regards to Ernie Guomas’ letter to the editor rant, responding to the Glenn Mollette Op-Ed column, (“Keep free speech in America,” Dec. 31), in which Mr. Guomas references bringing firearms into coffee shops (the sky is falling, the sky is falling!), and to Mr. Sokolowskis’ hate-filled diatribe about “some ignorant, backwoods duck hunter,” I have this response.

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson followed the way of the true religion of peace by hating the sin but loving the sinner. Would that Mr. Sokolowski did the same, yet in his political dogmatism he stooped to adhominem attacks upon rural life in general, and to the belief in a power greater than one’s self, specifically.

The sanctioning of hate by so-called progressives towards Christians and people with southern accents is but an example.

A&E network shows the duck hunter family joining hands around their dinner table saying grace (Mr. Sokoloski, that’s when people thank a higher power; no, not the government, G-O-D).
