Feedback: Don't promote gay lifestyles

How convenient for Principal Devlin and the National Education Association that these naive children have chosen to start a gay support group at Oak Harbor High School (News-Times, Nov. 8). Starting these groups in schools across the country has been one of the primary goals at annual NEA meetings for the last several years. It’s not hard to see what is going on here.

Any adult who could support this on any level is himself grossly naive, a moral coward or has criminal intent. No child with this problem should be ridiculed but they should get competent professional help that will lead them out of the gay death style.

Telling an impressionable child who is looking to adults for guidance that this is an acceptable life style is monstrous. This life style is hollow and unfulfilling. It is also reckless and fraught with real danger. The so called gay community does not just have a higher incidence of AIDS. It is saturated with AIDS as well as a host of other horrifying diseases. Aside from the personal defilement it is grossly unsanitary.

To be gay is a family tragedy, for obvious reasons. In a traditional marriage there is the hope of life renewing itself. Homosexuality and lesbianism is war upon life, a dance with death. Nothing can come of it. This is why most people recoil from it.

I don’t blame or hate anyone for being sick. I do blame those who try to endow this sickness with dignity by presenting it as a healthy viable alternative lifestyle. That this reckless nonsense is facilitated by the media and various gay lobbies in lock step with their strongest ally the NEA is just one more of the many reasons why it’s time to pull our children out of the abusive environment that has been created by the government public school system.
