Stuck in the Stone Age...

Mr. James Davis’s anti-gay letter (“No gray areas...” Feb. 13) made me laugh. First, his analogy saying Jesus is the cornerstone, then using the three little pigs to represent homosexuality, well, thanks, because that last little pig was pretty smart, and it seems his house stood up against the “big bad wolf.”

I think the wolf may have been a symbol of haters, and it looks like we stood pretty well against it then. Thanks.

Secondly, he says this life is about choices – right or wrong, yes or no. I mean really? Did he contradict himself again?

So he says we have a choice. But the choice is right only as long as it’s what he says it should be. Wow.

Thirdly, only marriage between a man and woman can work in the eyes of god. Well, Mr. Davis, there you go pushing your religious beliefs on everyone else. Shame on you. What about this choice you talked about? I don’t believe god hates anyone, and who would believe in him if he did.

Love between two people, be it whichever way, is the most amazing gift anyone can have. As long as two people can love and cherish one another then why not let them be happy. You only get one shot at this life. I would rather have love in it than the feeling of hopelessness and despair because some people say I can’t love my partner. So, just because it didn’t or doesn’t work for one person doesn’t mean it can’t or won’t work for me.

Fourth and finally, Mr. Davis, you say a square peg won’t fit in a round hole? Sorry you’re stuck in the Stone Age my friend. But as for me, “I shall (mold) my own life, and shape it into happiness.”

So if the square peg is not going to fit for you, try sandpaper. It might just smooth down the edges of your hate towards us.
