Column’s headline is offensive and unchristian, reader says

I was dismayed by the headline of Cynthia Dewes’ column in the June 26 issue of The Criterion: “Memories of the days before Energy Nazis came on the scene.”

Whether the wording was Ms. Dewes’ choice—which I doubt—or that of an editor, and whether one is energy conscious or not, to equate energy-conscious people with Nazis is appallingly offensive and unchristian.

It’s something one might expect from a secular blog, not from a Catholic newspaper.
