Homosexuals ‘Infesting’ Cities. Discuss

If you’re from any Small Town, USA, then you know your local paper can be filled with both robust local entertainment coverage … and conservative vitriol. Pick up North Carolina’s Asheville Citizen-Times and browse the Letters to the Editor section, and you’ll know which way the wind is blowing: “I feel morally obligated to express my opinion. I am a transplant from Jackson, Miss., who is astounded by how many homosexuals have ‘infested’ this beautiful city. I just don’t know what the general population should do. Perhaps the solution would be to set aside a specific state of the union for them to inhabit – perhaps we should set up a new name for Connecticut and call it ‘Sodom’ or ‘Gomorrah.'” God bless this letter’s author; she signed her name.

Regarding the story, “Gay wedding ban protested,” (AC-T, Dec. 21): I feel morally obligated to express my opinion. I am a transplant from Jackson, Miss., who is astounded by how many homosexuals have “infested” this beautiful city. I just don’t know what the general population should do.

Perhaps the solution would be to set aside a specific state of the union for them to inhabit – perhaps we should set up a new name for Connecticut and call it “ Sodom” or “Gomorrah.” I guess what these people think is that I should not be disgusted when I see them walking down the street holding hands and kissing in public. Do they think we can’t help but think about what they do in private when we see them going as far as they can in public?

I speak as a straight person and am against acts committed against God’s “natural” plan for the human race and the animals He put here for us to be in charge of. I encourage anyone to write an opinion on why they think that God made a male and a female.

If God condoned this type of behavior, He would have created one sex – not two.
