Exposing bigotry

To the Editor:

Congratulations on printing Pamela Mercier’s rant on June 14.

By letting readers see the depths of bigotry disguised as Christianity, you do everyone a service.

Ms. Mercier and her ilk can preach their homophobia from now until the judgment day.

Gays and lesbians are not a threat to families.

Parents who pass on their prejudices to their children are much more insidious and destructive.

Perhaps the gay bashers, including some clergymen masquerading as God’s representatives here on Earth, should try reading Matthew 7:1 (“Judge not, lest you be judged”) or John 8:7 (“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”).
