To the editor:

Our fight shoul never be against one another, for we are all God’s children, created in the image of God.

Instead, we should be challenging and resisting the influences of hegemonic, hierarchical and evil power structures, systems, and institutions that are unjust and oppressive. For this is what pits us against each other, what preys on our diversity, promotes distrust, and separates us from God, using false ideologies and theories of superiority based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion and socioeconomic classifications.

Evil thrives and breeds on animosity, discord and ignorance; these are easy, bu love can be difficult for it requires us to walk on higher ground. Love conquers all things while reminding us that the truth will ultimately set us free.
