The wrong message

To the editor:

We are a nation divided. But it is appalling to me to not only witness the hateful rhetoric from the religious and so-called conservative right but to see it being accepted as the norm by our society.

I was appalled to see a full-page ad Easter weekend in a weekly Southwest Florida paper by a local business. This was the most offensive and ignorant ad that I have ever seen. I was raised Roman Catholic and I am insulted with the prejudicial commentary to imply that Christianity is the only "right" religion.

I was stunned by the ignorance. This type of rhetoric is reminiscent of Nazi Germany calling an Aryan the "perfect race," or the propaganda of white supremacy or the propaganda of Isis. And this disgusts me.

We must be informed and be vocal. Persist in resisting this ignorance.
