I am deeply saddened not only by what happened in Charlottesville over the weekend, but the response of some on social media condemning anyone who does not feel and respond with the same level of anger and hatred they do.
While I can appreciate passion about a cause, is it really beneficial to condemn anger, hatred and violence with anger, hatred, name-calling and libel?
I much more appreciate thoughtful analysis and peaceful but prepared action, as described in these articles:
--Clergy who stared down white supremacists...
--A personal point of view from a clergyman who was there:
--An article form Allen West about not "cherry-picking" which groups to condemn for violence
