Another Letter of Support

The ADN is printing a steady stream of letters to the editor about the Assembly's non-discrimination ordinance, including this letter from Laura Muller of Anchorage posted on Wednesday:

Stop bearing false witness

I'd read about the proposed nondiscrimination ordinance but hadn't thought much about it until I ran across a recent press release from Anchorage Baptist Temple that implied homosexuals, pedophiles and pornographers are all cut from the same cloth.

If protecting kids is their aim, they're probably after the wrong rabbit -- most molesters are straight men.

As a Catholic wife and mother, I don't feel I ought to be spending much time pondering what other people do in the privacy of their homes. Jerry Prevo taught me more about necrophilia and bestiality today than I ever knew existed!

The most disturbing part, though, is this assumption that homosexual people aren't quite human and can't be expected to live by the same societal rules as the rest of us. That's dangerous and irresponsible.

It doesn't matter if you repeat it or shout it or tattoo it on your forehead -- that doesn't make it true.

Fact isn't an opinion or subject to religion. Please stop bearing false witness. It isn't right, and it isn't Christian.
