To the editor:
The hysteria around the bill concerning rights not to provide services for homosexuals is nonsense. This has even invaded our sports page. A few thoughts and questions to consider:
Civil rights are not the same as homosexual rights. A person is born a particular color/race.
It is obvious from birth what the color/race a person is.
The most one can claim is that some are born with an attraction (later manifested) to the same sex.
Homosexuality is discerned by the actions of people.
If sexual identification is determined by DNA and so moral, then pedophiles, rapists and bestiality can claim they are moral.
Is a hot-tempered person excused for actions if born with that disposition?
Is it right to argue that the disposition a person has when born makes the future actions OK?
Should a homosexual in the business be required to print signs for the “protests” of Fred Phelps? No? Then why should those opposed to same-sex marriage be forced to service those weddings?
Is it truly hate speech or bigotry to disagree with the actions of some and not want to be involved in their activity?
Does our Creator have rights? Surely those are important to take into consideration.
