Hate's Killing Power

I AM WRITING FROM way down South in a little old place called Australia regarding a letter ("Postmark") from Eleanor O. Smith in your September-October 1993 issue. Seems a few of you folks up there have some mighty strange ideas about how we should all solve our differences of opinion. It's pretty sad that Smith reckons we shouldn't weep over Dr. Gunn's killing. Seems to me that she needs to read what Jesus said about loving your enemies and how if we even hate one of our brothers and sisters, that's almost like killing them!

Just in case one of Dr. Gunn's buddies or kin read that letter, I'd like to say that in my opinion they should just weep on and so should anyone else who feels like doing so.
