Enjoy your rights ...
and stay stuck in the past
Dear Mr. Hendricks,
Regarding your letter of July 2: Times are changing. The sexual practices of people should remain a private matter as long as people are not excluded or branded “immoral” because of those practices or attractions.
Mr. Hendricks, your moral principles are not vital to our nation’s survival. Your moral principles are vital to your perception of our nation.
Freedom and morality and civility are the pillars of civilization. Inclusion, change and growth are not synonymous with “crumble.” I can quote you more “scripture” about love and acceptance than you can quote about Armageddon of the Gays.
The key to tolerance is the acceptance of intolerance. You have every right to be wrong and I see you are enjoying your rights. Stay stuck — at least we know where you are.
