Letter: Christening at BIW not a cause for celebration

My daughter noticed your April 11 front-page headline: "New Class of Destroyers to be Christened Saturday at BIW." She pointed out "Christ" and "Destroy" are linked. Thanks, Chelsea. That is definitely food for thought. Why are we burning up tax dollars to build killing machines we don't need? There must be a better way, a path to peace. So-called stealth destroyers represent a failure to work for the kind of world Christ envisioned – and I'm not even religious.
