Being gay is not OK

| Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013, 9:01 p.m.

Having to listen constantly to the gay agenda has at times caused me to exceed my usual quota of “cold beverages.”

It seems more than half of the entertainment industry is gay, which it gladly and arrogantly wants us to believe is “normal.” Then we have letter writer Amesh Adalja (“Marriage & religion mutually exclusive,” Feb. 9) attempting to convince us that any religion that says being gay is sinful is wrong.

You don't have to be a religious zealot to know why there are males and females of every species — to reproduce, stupid! His contention that procreation should not be a primary reason for marriage is absolutely ridiculous. Would Mr. Adalja have us believe the Bible is wrong?

I believe normal people agree that this wonderful country was founded — and is still based — on the fundamental moral standards found in the Bible. To throw all of that out the window and proclaim that homosexuality is normal is just plain sick.

Apologies to those who want to be politically correct, but being gay is not and never will be normal.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
