On Homosexuality, Civil Rights and Christian Judgement

It all started a few weeks ago with a letter to the editor of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise written by a very brave soul. The letter concerned gay marriage as a civil right. The letter generated 85 comments on the ADK website. What is surprising to me is the number of comments supporting the letter writer. I was not so surprised by the comments made by local homophobes.

A few days ago another letter to the editor was published in the ADK. This letter was written by a local bible-thumper and stated that homosexuals are sinners. As you might imagine (or maybe not) the letter has so far generated over 140 comments. The discussion rapidly devolved into whether what the bible says is worth the paper it is printed on. Interesting reading.

I like the separation of church and state. It's a big reason I'd never choose to live in Iran.
