Diocese should reconsider refugees

DEAR EDITOR:

On Christmas Day, I saw Bishop George Murry of the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown announce they were still planning to bring Syrian refugees to the Youngstown area.

Are you for real, Bishop Murry?

Are you not aware that a clear and present danger to the security of this country comes from the people of the Middle East? Have you forgotten the mass shootings in Paris, the carnage at the Orlando nightclub or in recent days, the truck killing (civilians) in the German marketplace?

These people have one thought in mind and that is to deprive us of our way of life; their mission is to destroy our culture and our beliefs.

This is a mission they must not win. We must stand strong and united against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Reconsider what you are about to do.
