To The Daily Sun,
To Mr. Harry Mitchell: I honestly don't care about what opinion you have as long as you stop trying to impose it on others. Period.
Religion has no bearing here, nor do your personal beliefs. They just don't. And they aren't what precipitated my initial letter regarding you. No, my letter came because you lied. You lied about what Hillary Clinton stands for in direct regard to the topic of abortion. You twisted the truth to try and make a political point, and I am sick to death of you and your ilk doing exactly that.
Late last year and earlier this year the same thing happened with Planned Parenthood videos. Remember those? People wrote in to this paper slamming Democrats because of their support of Planned Parenthood and these supposed videos. Carly Fiorina even claimed to have seen these videos during one of the debates. Remember that? It was all a lie — a complete and total fabrication that was put forward to push an agenda that you support. And do you remember the outcome of that push? I do. Because on Nov. 27 of last year, a gunman who was convinced that horrible things were happening at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, went there with the intention to kill someone.
That someone was 44-year-old Garrett Swasey. Gerald was originally from Melrose, Mass.. Gerald was someone my wife knew as a child. She spent some time at his home. Gerald was shot and killed by someone who believed the kinds of lies you are prone to tell. And that, Mr. Mitchell — that right there — is why I wrote in in all my pro-murdering, crass, inhumane, and rude glory. I am not anti-life or pro-abortion. I am pro-choice.
One of those choices is the one you prescribe to. The other choice you call "murder." You accuse people of "murdering babies," and that, sir, gets people up in arms and creates trouble. It leads to real and actual murder. Murder of a man with a wife and two children. Murder of doctors and nurses and countless others over the past 40 years. All because you want to impose your religious beliefs on others. And that, sir, that is why I am angry and why I respond and why I will challenge you every single time you open your mouth.
You decry murder and yet you encourage it. That is called hypocrisy. And the Bible is full of quotes about hypocrisy. I like this one from 1 John 4:20 that reads, "If anyone says, 'I love God,' and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen." Or Psalm 55:21: "His speech was smooth as butter, yet war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords."
So Mr. Mitchell, that is why I write in. Not to prevent your opinions but to stymie your lies. Your opinions are harmless; your lies are fatal.
