Los Alamos Shows Support For Threatened Jewish Communities Across U.S. At Tonight’s Candlelight Vigil

Jewish cemeteries in St. Louis, Philadelphia and Rochester, New York have been vandalized. And a bullet was fired into the window of a (thankfully, empty) synagogue classroom in Evansville, Ind.

This is in response to two columns by Father Glenn (link, link), two letters to the editor by Khalil Spencer (link, link), a column by Pastor Granillo (link), along with contributions from the prophet Isaiah, St. Luke, St. Paul, and everybody else who has recently written in to the Los Alamos Daily Post discussing “civility” in public discourse. 

Now, who could possibly be opposed to “civility” in public discourse? Well, it depends on how it is defined, who defines it, and most importantly, how it is implemented.

Fr. Glenn: Civility And Graciousness…One More Time

on March 5, 2017 - 7:07am
By Rev. Glenn Jones
Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church
Los Alamos

During Lent we read a lot from the prophet Isaiah at our Catholic Mass, and part of our reading Saturday was:

If you remove from your midst oppression,
false accusation and malicious speech;
If you bestow your bread on the hungry
and satisfy the afflicted;
Then light shall rise for you in the darkness,
and the gloom shall become for you like midday;
Then the LORD will guide you always…

(Isaiah 58:9-11 NAB)
