Jack Ohman Parades Ignorance in Pages of Sacramento Bee

It utterly mischaracterizes my religion and its name and, in the process, damages the credibility of your journalism.

Dear Ms. Gustus, 

Regarding your October 2 editorial on QAnon, I’m going to be brief, to the point, and crystal clear:

Do not use my religion or the name of my religion to make a negative, derogatory comparison. The subject of comparison is irrelevant. The gratuitous snarky comparison is what I’m talking about. It utterly mischaracterizes my religion and its name and, in the process, damages the credibility of your journalism. It betrays the writer’s ignorance and bigotry.

Not a good look.

Sincerely,


Michael Scandling
