Letter: Sessions’ words, actions reveal his hateful heart

During the Sand Creek massacre of Cheyenne people in 1864, an officer is said to have asked Col. John Chivington, who was overseeing the slaughter, “Do we kill the children too?” Chivington supposedly replied, “Do nits [louse eggs] turn into lice?” This kind of thinking seems to underlie the policies of our hardened racist Attorney General Jeff Sessions of Alabama, who advocates taking children from their parents on the basis of a phony reading of the Bible’s St. Paul as saying, basically, “the government is always righteous.” Jesus wept. I know most of my fellow Americans would help a child in need, not hurt it further. But people like Sessions shame us all.
