In response to Terry Mattingly’s op-ed on religion on Saturday, [June 20, A6,] may I say that when your faith requires you to hate anyone, when it requires you to shun, or discriminate or demean anyone; it is time to find a new faith. Why? Because you have strayed so far from the message of Jesus that you have become a banging gong or a clanging cymbal. Haters have no place in any faith community, with the possible exception of communities of hate. We should all be done with this.
