“Some of our core principles and values as Christians and Americans include helping individuals escape from tyranny, persecution and inhumane treatment,” Beckner wrote. “While we must remain vigilant and united in our efforts to protect our community from radical extremists who commit acts of terrorism, we cannot allow our vigilance to turn into vigilantism 
against an entire religion and culture.” 
Write him and tell him how you feel. 
We do all the time, he always writes us back.
