To the Editor:

Lawrence Zupan's letter of April 5th is a study in contradiction.

The intolerance he first decries, he then displays as he lashes out. Saying that the radical left "hates everything this country was founded in" is as inaccurate as calling all Tea Party members "Bible thumping bigots."

Unless we leave room for freedom of expression for those we disagree with, there is little hope in finding a common thread to bind us together.

I feel that the vitriol in his letter belies what he attacks, but am glad we live in a land in which he is free to express his true feelings.

Only love can conquer hate.
