Deen critics should look in mirror

July 01, 2013

We surely seem to have become a nation of the double standard. I read with interest several articles in The Sun concerning the trending Paul Deen issue ("Turning back the clock?" June 25).

Seems odd that some of the same folks who wish to distance themselves now from Ms. Deen because of an alleged slur she uttered 30 years ago have no problem plugging products from Martha Stewart, a convicted felon.

I do not wish to judge either one but I think a good percentage of America needs to take a good look at themselves in the mirror. I think we all need a "time out" here. May your faith guide you accordingly.
