We should give the gay issue a rest, let people live their lives

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, January 30, 2007

God almighty, I am so sick of hearing about gay this, gay that and what the Bible says.

Sound off on the important issues at

People, when are you going to give it a rest?

If you truly believe in the Bible as God's word, then how come you don't accept people for what they are? Does the Bible not say do unto others as you would have them do to you? And if you believe in God, how can you not believe he made gays as well and loves them just as much as any of his children? You really think that God would make something he could not stand or deal with?

Please, the Bible is a story. That is all it is, a good read when you have nothing better to do (except for the self-righteous who think your way is the only way and use the Bible to try to prove it).

If there is a God, and I for one am hoping there is, then you have to believe he created everything, and in everything he created gays. Love is not a gender issue, nor is it a sexual issue; it is just love, and does everyone not have the right to love?

Get off your high horses, and let people be. Let them live their lives and love who they want. And if you are so afraid of getting touched by someone who is gay, stay away from them; I am sure God won't mind that you don't care to treat others as you would have them treat you.
