Cheers And Jeers

Last week I posted about a Star Telegram "Jeer" to the paper for being "too gay". This week brought a couple of Jeers in response to the original Jeer: "Jeers: To Charles P. Lenard Jr. for his Sept. 17 jeer to the Star-Telegram for being 'too gay.' You don't speak for me, so please don't write: 'Your subscribers don't want to read about same-sex couples.' I want to read the news, and if that includes reading about same-sex partners, etc., so be it. You would be better off reading an alternative newspaper. Homophobe Times, perhaps? Anna Holyfield, Troy" "Jeers: To Charles P. Lenard Jr. for his mean and hurtful jeer. As a Christian, I believe that we're all equal and that God loves all mankind. The Star-Telegram has a responsibility to share views on all subjects, types of people and religions. That's what makes the newspaper so interesting to read. Kaye L. Harmon, Hurst"

What about all the stories about couples who cheat on their spouses? Why is being gay so much worse than committing adultery? Do we need a special newspaper for cheaters?

People do not choose to be gay, it is by nature!

The newspaper is just reporting and reflecting on our society. Recently our local newspaper wrote a great series on a woman in her final hours dying of cancer. The article was beautiful and inspirational. The woman had a partner who stayed with her and helped her to the end.

People do not choose to be gay? it is by nature? really prove that one! if its natural then why cannot gays have babies? It is natural when a man and woman have sex the woman has a baby that is natural.but when gays have sex they get aids and die! so what is so natural about that? Please explain to us why it is natural, or by nature?

Folks, if you don't want to pursue a gay lifestyle, don't. If you are gay, OK. Statistically about 5 to 8% of humans are gay (homosexual). Of course they don't reproduce very well on their own, so I guess straights continue to produce more of them. By the way, "gayness" is also common in several other species

What God approves of will have procreation power. That is nature.

anon @ 3:46 They don't produce very well on their own? They do not produce at all. All they produce from that life style is death. God has not and will not create anything that goes against His will.We all make choices that oppose His will for our life.Can you be born gay? I thoughtno But the Bible says that the sins of the fathers are handed down four generations. The spirit of homosexualty can be handed down from generation to generation, but there is hope, just ask Jesus to set you free!!! It is a spirit folks

I wonder if this is the same Charles P. Lenard Jr. who also got lampooned for a letter he wrote to the Korea Times about HIV tests.

His letter is here:
