Regarding Paul Morrison’s letter “Reader: Same-sex benefits debate shows erosion of morals” (Clarion, Jan. 30). I’d like to say to Paul, get off your moral high horse before you fall off. I happen to be a heterosexual with children and grandchildren. My interpretation of a homosexual would be a person who lives next door, a person who works in a courthouse or next to you on the sliming line at the cannery. Most likely a Republican or Democrat or whatever. One happens to be the daughter of Dick Cheney. If you don’t think they were around in the ’50s, you had your head in the sand or some other dark place.
Here are some of the things you can tell your children. I would like to add that you don’t even have to mention the fact that they pay taxes just like the rest of us.
1st: You can tell your children to be careful what they tell their children because a lot of what we teach our children is the reason we are not all created equal.
2nd: You may want to be brutally honest and tell them that people are being killed every day in the name of God and oil.
3rd: You can tell them that we all don’t believe in the same God and that some people that are spreading the word of God are the worst child molesters that have ever walked the face of this earth. Please don’t forget to add that these same churches where people are being married are condoning this behavior by aiding and abetting these pedophiles.
4th: Most importantly, Mr. Morrison, if one of your children or grandchildren “chooses” and I say that as about as sarcastically as possible in writing, to be immoral according to you moral standards, please tell them you love them. You never know, you may be preventing a suicide by saying these three simple words.
I hope you get something out of this, if not you, someone you love.
