I just don't know what to say about the tactics employed by NLEC...
I'll let their letter speak for itself.
Reductio ad absurdum in action...
Here's the link to the .bmp file itself:
Oh and Hank Zeniewicz is apparently the NLEC's “public relations director”...
Here it is for search engine indexing....
New Life Evangelistic Center
Veterans Coming Home Program
209 W. Commercial St.
Springfield, MO 65803
February 27, 2008
"After the actions taken by the schoolboard, the city council, and soon the county commission, against New Life Evangelistic Center, I think back to the lesson of history. It is here that we learn, if we so choose to open our minds, that this is not the first time such actions have taken place!
In 1933, after coming to power, Hitler and his henchmen passed resolutions against those who were homeless. The called them, as does this resolution call the homeless here in Springfield, "undesireables" in an attempt to rid Germany of their homeless population.
We learn, if we are intelligent enough and honest enough not to try to rewrite history, exactly where this led. We have only to look as far as the national Holocost[sic] Memorial in Washington, D.C. to see what the cost of these actions were for far too many people.
Now in 2008 once again a relatively small group of people travel the same slippery slope as the NAZIs. Unfortunately for all Springfieldians, this is occuring right here. So now the question must be asked, will they also go after the Jews in the same manner? After all it has already occured and the path has been set! How long will it be before the Mayor, the City Council, the County Commission, and the Schoolboard all start demanding that we say, "Sieg Heil?"
