Spooky, Scary Religion 

Dear Shailagh Murray,

I read with interest your Washington Post article "Young Democrats Sharpen Tactics Against Old Rivals," but was taken aback by the following sentence:

Their conversation even veered to religion, a subject many Democrats are afraid to touch.

I was wondering if you could provide some evidence for your sweeping insinuation. Did you interview Democrats (presumably elected Democrats, since they are the subject of your article) who told you that they were "afraid to touch" religion? Did you speak with Democrats who were hesitant or unwilling to discuss religion with you?

If so, could you please provide me with the names of those Democrats, or at least the context in which you gathered your information?

If not, could you tell me whether you make false and baseless assertions because you are a sloppy and lazy reporter who tosses out chestnuts when you feel like it; or because you are a liar?

I look forward to your clarification in this matter.
