"...but the hateful and even violent rhetoric that has been employed in the past, and is now having a resurgence again, is dangerous and destructive and should be renounced and rejected by people of faith and good will across the political spectrum."
I happen to agree with him, to a certain extent.
Which is the reason for this new blog--to show examples of what I consider "hateful and even violent rhetoric", but from the past and from things said in more recent times.
Probably the most telling difference between Wallis and myself will be this--he considers the rhetoric of US conservatives to be the "hateful and even violent rhetoric" that we are to avoid, while I think that it is liberals like Wallis himself who most often engage in that kind of speech and writing. And I intend to show it here.
Don't know if this will be an enjoyable place. It is meant to inform, and I hope you who will read it will leave informed.
