A Civic Duty

Every citizen has an obligation to proactively speak out against ignorance like this regardless of whether it supports their politics or not.

(That would include, for example, Barack Obama if he personally heard some of his pastor's wilder conspiracy theories)

A friend of mine (with whome we graduated!) sent me an email entitled "Why Muslims Can't Be Good Americans". It went on to spout a list of reasons why, one being b/c Muslims should pray towards Mecca; therefore, they are not loyal to the US. I think you may have given me to the courage to speak up to her!

Oops, I spelled a word wrong. Don't hold it against me.

I've received similar emails too.

It is always disheartening to read or hear about such things, but especially when it is someone you know... good luck if you decide to speak out! :)
