I have friens of all political and religious persuasions, Don. That includes
Duane Gish, BTW. And Ted Kennedy. To ascribe "deep personal hatred" to me is
an affront, and I deeply resent it.
That there are some folks I might have difficulty with if I met them --
maybe. But outside of, prehaps, Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and a few "bad
guys" like that, I really have trouble "hating" any of them.
I think Falwell, Robertson and the like are dead wrong in most of their
political and religious rantings, but I do not hate them. I resent what you
have said about me (aove), but there is no hate in that resentment. I think
Geoge Bush, John Ashcroft and Rumsfield are quite on the wrong page on the
Iraq question, and am inclined to think personally that their posturing is
driven more by politics than anything else, but I do not hate them, and hope
that they are driven at all times by the purest of motives.
I correspond regularly with several fundamentalists, friends of many years.
These friendships are not marred by differing views.
I refuse to look at the world as "us" vs "them."
