Letter to the Editor: 09.21.12

On Aug. 31, The?Murray State News published a letter from Kyle Shupe.

Mr. Shupe implied the CEO of Chik-Fil-A funneled money to pass a bill in Uganda calling for the death penalty for the crime of homosexuality. He wrote it in spite of the fact there was no proof of the charge. If there were any proof, the network news would have made it their lead story. The bill that was introduced in Uganda only covered the crimes of adult-child incest, sexual abuse of the disabled, and to deliberately infect people with the AIDS virus. The bill didn’t even pass.

He wrote about homosexual teenagers who were killing themselves. The first report about that was in a Washington, D.C. homosexual newspaper, claiming the juvenile homosexual suicide rate is 3 times the national average, a claim that has never been confirmed by any national medical or health report, like the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, which keeps that information. (Note: I don’t use the phrase “LGBT” since I don’t speak political correctness.)

Mr. Shupe also wrote,?“If you don’t like gay marriage, don’t get gay married.” That’s like saying, “If you look out your own window and don’t like seeing pollution, then don’t look out your window.” It doesn’t work.

Words like “tolerance” were used in the letter. If you take a look at the website of the Heritage Foundation for the 2009 report on the California homosexual marriage vote, “The Price of Prop 8,” you will find the ideal of tolerance as seen by the homosexual rights movement includes death threats, vandalism, destruction of property, arson, hate mail, loss of employment and economic opportunities, racial slurs and anti-religious attacks, including vandalism and threats against churches and followers.

Mr. Shupe wrote, “This article may sound harsh, it doesn’t make it wrong.”

No, Mr. Shupe. The article is wrong, and you are wrong.
