I am an avid reader of your paper. I do like to read Your Column Here. I read many different articles which I do not agree with from time to time. I understand that people do have different beliefs, ideas, etc., than myself and I like to keep an open mind. What I read today (“R.I.P., Boy Scouts of America,” Your Column Here, May 28), really disturbed me. Again, I may not agree with everyone’s point of view, but what Matt Barber had written and what you allowed in your paper is nothing but hate and bigotry.
I’m really disappointed that someone with this much hate is allowed to continue to contribute to your paper. How can anyone gain from what he has written? I really hope you take the time to consider never printing this man’s vitriolic sentiments toward anything he does not feel is Christian.
