Letter to the Editor

World is round

Wednesday, May 25, 2005

Dear Editor,

When people tell the tale of Noah's Ark, they seldom mention the millions of bloated corpses floating in the water around the ship as the "hero" of the story ignores all the drowning people, including millions of pregnant women and their unborn children ["Real problem" (http://www.mccook gazette.com/story/1097516.html)].

When people tell the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, they tell the first part about cities destroyed by an angry being but they don't mention the second part when the "hero" abandons his wife and instead incestuously impregnates his two daughters.

The fact that so many people subjectively emphasize parts of religion but not other parts demonstrates conclusively that religion can be used toward any end, including the subjugation of gay people when nongay people cannot handle reality regarding the innate nature of sexual orientation.

The world was still round when religious people swore otherwise. Gay people are as much a part of life as heterosexual people. Just as heterosexual people who choose not to reproduce or who cannot reproduce are as equally as valuable as anyone else.

So, fall in love, be happy, be kind. Everyone can do that, and it doesn't require oppressing people or listening to long-since expired generations from the other side of the planet who thought the world was flat.

Brian Wyant,

  • I honistly think that our president is not the brightest crayon in the box. if he was a true leader he would be out their with our men and women protcting us. also we have had so many die or get hurt that he should pull some back, and ease up on iraq before it's to late. i may only be 14 but i know that what he is doing is wrong and somebody needs to do something about it because it seems that know matter what we do to try to tell him he just dosn't get it, and thats a huge problem!
