You wrote recently in your website column that Christmas is “for all of us who need the peace offered by God himself through Jesus Christ.” Since you are writing as the Representative of Virginia’s 6th district, are you only addressing those of us who are Christians? Personally, I love Christmas. My kids will be waking up soon, and we’ll start pulling out presents from under the tree. But this is the least peace I’ve felt at Christmas that I can remember. A minority of Americans have elected an outspoken bigot and misogynist to the White House, someone who has vowed to rip apart immigrant families, someone whose campaign has increased hate crimes across the nation. My family feels afraid—I can only imagine what Latino families feel, or Muslims, or those with gay loved ones. You are not offering peace—you are giving us the most divisive President in modern history. Your party has embraced Donald Trump and the rhetoric of hate. And it is offensively hypocritical of you to then mouth words of peace and unification. I do wish you and your family a merry Christmas. But instead of peace I hope God through Jesus Christ opens your eyes to the fears you are inflicting on us all.
