Reader Opinion: Vote through the lens of love
There is no doubt in my mind that a culture of hateful and violent verbiage directed at other people and allowed to permeate our lives leads to violent behavior. And so we have witnessed it. It has made our world coarser, abusive, and less loving. But hurtful words do not need to...
