Letter to the Editor

Gay marriage demands are misplaced



Congratulations to Bishop Tobin for responding to the ongoing gay "rights" agenda to redefine the concept of marriage, family and the meaning of sexuality. (March 1 Visitor)

The demand for recognition and approval on their part is misplaced as is the arrogant demand to be granted public funds and tax advantages by the redescription of tradtional procreative unions in favor of sterile ones.

Tolerance of anything and everything is the only virtue recognized in this discourse and so we must all be forced to be tolerant.

We should tolerate being silenced as well, by this logic, or be accused of "hate speech."
