A sad hate-mongering letter directed at gay community

Dear Editor,
He’s at it again!
If not unlimited fireworks without oversight or responsibility,
it’s berating the gay community for daring to be alive.
Dear Editor,

He’s at it again!

If not unlimited fireworks without oversight or responsibility, it’s berating the gay community for daring to be alive. In his latest harangue Alan Viarengo rolls out mystic assumptions, unproved “facts” and another conspiracy theory to bolster his mindless, myopic, meaningless and mean-spirited muttering on his perceived terrorists today – homosexuals and lesbians.

He writes: “Remember when the families (and the far left) demeaned the role of housewife and demanded that women join the workplace?” What “families?” I recall women willingly joined the workforce throughout World War II. When that ended, many remained working despite strident demands they go home!

Your reference to a television show “glorifying single motherhood” and being the cause of “Both parents HAVE to work” means what? Do you blame working parents solely for rising “youth crime rates and tribalism (gangs).

I’m just a dumb country boy who never got social learning skills so explain this statement: “One bastard generation later …” You follow that with one of those definitive declarations from on-high that is nonsensical: “… scientific data finally became available to support what we all knew all along: That the best situation for kids is to have a father and a mother, with one at-home parent.” What “data”? Who is the “we” that “knew all along” your alleged truth? Do they now watch snake-oil TV shows like “Dr. Phil” and weep over dysfunctional families?

You close saying “today’s socialist, leftist ilk is out to destroy (the institution of marriage) … demanding it be expanded to homosexuals.” How will this “destroy” conventional marriages? What are your specific reasons to oppose such a move?

Your last paragraph is ludicrous. “Will we fight and stop this now that we know it’s wrong, learn from our mistakes, or will we roll over for fear of their name-calling and ruin another generation?”

You have four self-righteous statements in that brief display of non-understanding. 1) You claim “it’s wrong” but who appointed you judge of those whose differences you can neither comprehend nor accept?; 2) Mistake? The only mistake revealed in your letter is your obvious intolerance for those who think differently than you concerning lifestyle; 3) Name-calling. You raise the issue but you’re doing the name-calling; 4) Ruin another generation. I may have been around life longer than you, Alan, and I must ask: When did all this ruination take place? How will “another generation” be ruined by same-sex relationships being recognized?

Ask yourself this, Alan: Which is more a threat toward ruining any generation – a same-sex couple living in harmony with their community or a hate-mongering, anti-gay, name-calling individual unable to accept the reality that each of us is unique in his/her being and doesn’t need the judgment of others to exist?
