Citizens contributing to division of country
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). Bernardine Abell-Swann, Mechanicsville
