REC statement on racial comments made on LPFM lists

We are very disturbed by comments that are either written or reposted by a well known name in the LPFM community that we feel are racist and degrade one's choice to practice a certain faith.

We do not feel that the use of the LPFM information news groups were the appropriate place to post such messages.

REC has an "agnostic with an open mind" policy where we do not blame an entire religion for the extreme acts of a few individuals.

We feel that such comments made by this individual promote hate either directly or indirectly. We felt these comments were unnecessary.
