To The Daily Sun,
It seems un-American for The Daily Sun to publish a column on the Fourth of July which falsely attacks people's religion. Bob Meade insinuates, in "It's Too Big For The Supreme Court,” that American Muslims are demanding the right to practice polygamy, homophobia, stoning, and honor killings. This is a completely false and insidious smear on the religion of fellow Americans. No Muslim group in America is seeking any right to such practices. What makes this even worse is that The Daily Sun gives him a column to help him spread these bigoted falsehoods. Not just a letter, but a column! This seems to imply that The Daily Sun endorses these slanders.
Think of how this will look to your grandchildren. You are in the position of newspapers in Hitler’s pre-war Germany, who had to decide whether to publish the deadly lies about Jews that people wanted them to publish. Publishing insidious falsehoods against American Muslims can only feed the wave of hate crimes we see since Trump was elected.
