Dear Editor:

I am writing in response to Lars Colgan’s letter to the editor in the Oct. 3 Savanna Times-Journal (and Oct 2. Carroll County Mirror-Democrat.)

Ninety percent of his letter is absolutely false. It’s too bad he had to make most of it up to try and cover up his own actions. The truth is, Mr. Colgan acted very rude, vulgar and obnoxious to all of us women, children and one man.

We were peacefully protesting this propaganda movie (“Unplanned”), not shoving anything at anyone, when Mr. Colgan came out of the theater door and began yelling at us, targeting the 16-year-old girl.

We had to step in between the two to get him away from her. That’s when we began chanting, “Women’s rights are human rights” to drown out his voice. That really made him mad so he threatened to call the police, whom we welcomed since Mr. Colgan had become belligerent.

Shame on you, Mr. Colgan, for lying to cover-up your own actions and then to try and slander another business owner/council person who has contributed very much to this community. You, Mr. Colgan, should shut your mouth and take a seat.

Julia A. Castro
