The Collegian’s recent endorsement (Our View, Nov. 19) of the
Massachusetts Supreme Court legislating from the bench was not only
embarrassing but also shameful. You attempted to normalize
homosexual behavior by equating it to the color of one’s skin
(civil rights). Did you know that Martin Luther King, Jr.’s own
niece, Alveda Celeste King, disagrees with you? In 1997 she said
that the equation of homosexuality to race was a “death sentence”
for the civil rights movement.
Your assertion that this is a “victory for civil rights” is just
as deceptive. A July 28 USA Today/Gallup poll revealed the
African-American community does not support the homosexual agenda.
Their support fell from 58 percent in May to 36 percent in July,
according to the poll.
Whether or not one is “born” with homosexual tendencies is
irrelevant. Individuals CHOOSE to partake in an activity. Because
the radical homosexual lobby has not been able to win in the voting
booth or the legislatures, their obvious strategy is to destroy the
family in the courts. Unfortunately there are enough judicial
activists willing to destroy the Constitution for their own
Ms. King said it best. “No one is enslaving homosexuals… or
making them sit in the back of the bus. Don’t expect us or our
children to approve of, promote or elevate sexual preference to
civil rights status…What’s next, civil rights on the basis of
prostitution and pedophilia?”
