In the April 14 Faith section, the lead column by Vince Hatt praised the interfaith group "LISSN" for seeking to ban a former FBI agent from voicing his concerns regarding Muslims in our country.
Reading between the lines of this article, it's apparent that those strident advocates of political correctness mentioned in the article only tolerate free speech that's in accord with their preconceived views.
If Hatt's friends believe that John Guandolo is mistaken or, as the advocates of political correctness would label, an Islamaphobe, why don't they challenge him to a debate? Instead, they chose censorship -- a clear violation of the 1st Amendment.
Hatt wrote of hate crimes and verbal abuse directed at Muslims ignoring assaults against Christians, Jews and other faiths, such as Bai-Hai, occurring in societies where Islam dominates.
If Hatt and his fellow utopians would read the later writings in the Quaran, he'd understand why there's Islamaphobia.
