Diocese of Sacramento Should Let Robert Spencer Speak!
We respectfully request that Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento allow Robert Spencer to speak at the Kolbe Academy conference. We ask that Bishop Soto recognize that Nathan Lean's charges against Robert Spencer are false and defamatory, and/or motivated by personal animus and political differences. We are alarmed that Bishop Soto would consider in effect enabling and abetting the silencing of a voice that speaks up for justice, our freedoms and for the persecuted Christians in Egypt, Nigeria, Pakistan, and elsewhere in the Muslim world. It would also be extremely odd for Bishop Soto to cancel Mr. Spencer's talk on classical education because Lean objects to Spencer's work resisting jihad terror, an entirely unrelated topic. Bishop Soto as a leader of the church should stand up against calumny and intimidation. Let Robert Spencer speak.
