Dear David,

So far so good  -- no doubt there are those who fear and attack Christians
out of a misplaced fear of their own doubts and longings for security.  How
else are we to understand such acts as church burnings and various attacks
on Christians seemingly just because they were Christians.

Hmmmm   -- now that seems a disproportionate response to me.  Is that what
what homosexuals seem to be doing  --playing the role of the victim if
anyone so much as questions their behavior?  I thought the term homophobic
was generally reserved for disproportionate attacks on homosexuals.  Attacks
that seemed inexplicable and irrational  --like church burnings.
