The letter, as submitted via their websites -
Dear Senator Kyl,
I am writing to you today in regard to the events of Thursday, July 12, where, on the floor of the Senate, a group of religious extremists tried to shout down the prayer offered by a spiritual leader from another faith.
In a country such as ours that has as one of its founding principles that people will befree to worship peacefully and without fear of persecution, this sort of sectarian intolerance is embarrassing and unacceptable.
I urge you to condemn the behavior of the extremists and to disavow any ties to their umbrella group, Operation Save America.
A message must be sent; one that states that tolerance of other faiths does not diminish one's own faith, but that suppression of one faith inevitably leads to the suppression of all.
Note: This same note is also being sent to Sen. McCain.
Personally, the letter seems restrained and reasonable to me; however, I expect some blowback from one or more wingers over it.
Note: I did change the names where appropriate when I submitted the letter via McCain's website. :)
Now, have a great weekend!
