Not Christianity, but hatred

Thanks for the editorial, “Sacrilege in the Capitol” (Jan. 22). The volatile mix of QAnon, white supremacists and Trump supporters created a volatile cocktail, and Donald Trump lit the fuse. I found it painful to watch Bible-toting Christian-flag bearers ransack the Capitol. Our local paper ran an article, “Christianity on display in Capitol riot.” Wrong! It was hatred. Anyone who believes holding a Bible makes one a Christian is sadly misled, just as waving an American flag does not make one a patriot.
