Repudiating Violence and Violent Language

My thoughts are with those tragically killed or injured yesterday in Tuscon, Arizona and their families.

Keith Olbermann has the right idea and I share his sentiment when he said: “Violence, or the threat of violence, has no place in our Democracy, and I apologize for and repudiate any act or any thing in my past that may have even inadvertently encouraged violence. Because for whatever else each of us may be, we all are Americans.”

I wish that the members of the Westboro Baptist Church, many conservative commentators/agitators, and the leaders of the Republican Party could muster the reflexivity, grace and moral courage necessary to change the way that they speak and act.

Learn about 9 year old Christina Green, who was born on 9-11-2001 and died yesterday here.
