Great Example of Certain Modern Christians

RECEIVED Tue., April 6, 2004

Dear Editor,
   I have just read Jena Selman's lovely letter to the editor ["Postmarks," April 2] concerning her beliefs on gay marriage, and I for one say, "Thank God for Jena Selman!" She is one of a strong few, the proud, the devout, the concerned.
   We should all thank her for exposing the truth about so many Christians such as herself: They are deluded hatemongers, twisting Jesus' message of love into political attacks directed at the people they love to pointlessly oppress, and to encourage people based on such hatred to physically attack them as well.
   It is unfortunate that there are not more upright citizens like Jena who provide great examples of the great lie that Christianity has become, and how far it has strayed from the words of its namesake. No longer is Christianity about peace and compassion for those different from you, it's now exposed for the political propaganda corporation it has become.
    Thank God for Jena Selman!
Christopher Borgman
