Feedback: Who's really tearing our fabric

This letter is in response to David Wallsteadt's Nov. 19 letter, “Don’t support gay lifestyles.”

I have friends and family who are gay even though I am not gay myself. I accept those people for who they are. You say that youth need a positive influence. Like say you, for instance? A person who hates a group of people because they have a different sexual preference, but not a person that accepts people for who they are?

“Right is right no matter how many are against it; and wrong is wrong no matter how many are for it.” Where is it wrong to be gay? If you are using religion as your soap box I’m sorry, but religion has no place in school. On that note, a devil worship support group would not be acceptable because it deals with a religion. Now a group devoted to trying to bring our society together and stop violence would be acceptable.

David, you say condoning such acts tears the moral fabric of our nation. So same sex partners and accepting people for who they are is bad; but hate, non-acceptance, fear and judging people is OK. David, people like you are tearing the moral fabric of this nation, not gay people.
