Re: Tapestry, Sept. 19
What a disappointing Tapestry submission by David Boyd of the Nelson United Church. Disappointing but not surprising. The sanctimonious Christian left is so predictable.
Wise, trust, courage, peace, heart, principle and other words of an honorable person’s character are sprinkled through Mr. Boyd’s first four paragraphs. Then the enemy to all these higher traits is revealed. It’s the “alt-right.” Of course like the boogeyman, no description of the bad guy is afforded. Mr. Boyd should give us some idea what “alt-right” means to him and why the far left is not included in his fears.
Does he have room in his Circle of Trust for those whose views he disagrees with? He says he is a “follower of Jesus.” You know, the guy who said “love your enemies.”
Of course Jesus also said “I came not to bring peace but a sword.” Hey, maybe he’s the alt-right.
