Cit­i­zens con­tribut­ing to di­vi­sion of coun­try

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

Thank you, Bobby J. Wal­lace, for your let­ter (“At­tach­ing church ti­tle, church name to per­sonal views is wrong,” Mary­land In­de­pen­dent, Feb. 24). Your mes­sage needed to be said. Mr. Wal­lace’s let­ter was in re­sponse to the Rev. Charles Hof­facker’s let­ter “Tyranny re­spects no one” (Mary­land In­de­pen­dent, Feb. 3).

Also in the Feb. 24 edi­tion of Mary­land In­de­pen­dent was a story cov­er­ing Con­gress­man Steny Hoyer’s visit to a lo­cal school. Dur­ing his visit, Con­gress­man Hoyer told his au­di­ence that the coun­try has never been more deeply di­vided since the U.S. Civil War, with vast dis­agree­ments be­tween peo­ple of dif­fer­ent po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tions and al­most no “meet­ing of the minds.”

It is quite ob­vi­ous to me that cit­i­zens such as Rev. Hof­facker are con­tribut­ing im­mensely to the di­vi­sion of our coun­try.

The anti-Trump peo­ple are in a panic — an out­sider was elected pres­i­dent. They need to take a deep breath; watch the White House care­fully with an open mind; and wait for the re­sults of Pres­i­dent Trump’s poli­cies be­fore “ris­ing up” (against our pres­i­dent).
