LETTER: No injustice in the LGBT community, really

I have passed through many college campuses over the years, and on Aug. 15 and 16 I had business on the IU campus.

I ate at several good restaurants, bicycled around campus and soaked up the beautiful scenery.

I also read the typical naïve liberal tripe I see at most universities.

Sarah Kissel, passionately and proudly left-wing, tells us of the “injustice” the LGBT community suffers in a “myriad” of ways.

Ridiculous.

The LGBT community, almost attaining sainthood through speeches, parades and countless rallies — see Justin Ford in the same IDS issue celebrating at Rachael’s Cafe — is in reality less than 2 percent of the population, but it has managed to bully and maneuver its way through the courts until finally victorious.

Gay marriage has no connection to the civil rights marches in the ‘60s, and Martin Luther King Jr. would never have allowed his prayerful movement to be hijacked by the LGBT militants.
In real life, each state where this issue has come to vote rejected gay marriage.

And now we are finding genealogy records with family trees completely disjointed as two men or two women record their marriage licenses.

Civil unions, yes. Marriage, no.

But as usual, lawyers have made a decision they had no right making.

I’m older and have seen quite a bit and have seen people like me labeled homophobic or as a hater, which I’m not.

I’m just encouraging young sociology and English majors to investigate the social consequences to knee-jerk applause for every liberal cause that comes down the pike.

Sometimes real courage is being one of the few to disagree on a college campus with “all love is good love” and mocking conservative thoughts and values.
