Disturbing comparison...

Richie Cordero has this right: Love and let love.

Gail Darcey’s comparison between same sex relationships, multiple spouse relationships and inter-species relationships (letter published in the Feb. 27 edition of The Times-Independent) was completely absurd and bigoted. You use your Bible as your defense, correct? Let me ask you something... Do you know what your Bible says about animals and birds? Read up – and then tell me why your God would create over 1,500 species of animals that practice homosexuality and only ONE that practices homophobia?

You are forcing your beliefs on other people and it is impacting their personal lives. They are not forcing their views onto your personal life. The only way that this would effect you and/or your marriage is if you secretly fear that you or your spouse are gay and the legalization of same-sex marriages will prompt you to leave behind the life you currently live.

As far as Gail comparing HUMAN relationships with interspecies relationships – spare me. That comparison is disgusting. Humans give consent to live the lives they choose, animals do not.

People who think for themselves, and think logically can argue your disturbing comparison in their sleep. You can keep your closed-minded, bigoted, hateful beliefs. My heart and soul tell me what is right.
