Regarding the news story “When Pittsburgh flies rainbow flag, some see red” (March 29 and TribLIVE.com): You may try to keep the flames of hatred going, but the people of America have learned that what you do in your bedroom is no one's business but your own and does not affect society.
Until a study is done that proves that a gay or lesbian married couple living next door to me would have impacted my 50-year marriage, I'll let each person decide for him- or herself whom they want to love. I seem to remember a passage in the Bible that says, “Where there is love, there also is God.”
I would also like to remind Mary Ann Burkhart of Bethel Park, who objected in the story to the rainbow flag flying outside the City-County Building, that lesbians, gays and transsexuals also fought and died defending the flag of the United States of America.

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.
