Re: “Cruel, reptilian, parasitic cults have rights, too” (editorial, 3-3).

Thanks for the excellent response to the recent Supreme Court decision regarding the so-called Westboro Baptist Church.

As a retired disabled American veteran of both the Korean and Vietnam wars, and a practicing Christian, I am appalled by this gathering of idiots who do not represent any part of Christianity and the human decency of the majority of the Americans.

I trust that your well-written opinion will be a catalyst in the need for all Americans to slow down the rhetoric and begin to show respect and love for each other, rather that hatred.
