Letter misses the point on anti-racism consultant

In response to Rev. Pamela Rumancik (Jan. 27 letter), Valda Valbrun was not hired to tell us about Jesus. He either lives in your heart or he doesn’t.

Carving out nearly $200,000 to pay someone to train our academic community on equity, anti-racism and diversity issues while publicly defiling those who she vehemently opposes based on their views or political affiliation eliminates any credibility she purportedly had.

What would your congregation think of you spending a similar amount on someone who promotes a so-called open mind only to turn around and lambast those who don’t share their beliefs. So, to also quote scripture, Proverbs 16:18: “After the pride, comes the fall.” — J. Patrick Rooney, Hinsdale
