Letter: Brooks’ commentary offensive to conservative Christians

Brooks’ commentary offensive to conservative Christians

David Brooks’ Nov. 19 column on siege mentality (“Siege mentality explains dysfunction on left and right”) is one of the most offensive commentaries I have ever read.

As a conservative evangelical Christian, the assumption that we are floating on apocalyptic fear and victimhood while we can’t be bothered to worry about things such as morality, humility, honesty and basic decency is beyond offensive.

To state that we have gone to pagan leadership with repugnant habits of mind because we are Christians shows total lack of knowledge of our faith and an alarming sense of hostility.
