Writer challenges liberal idealogy regarding LGBT anti-discrimination laws

To the Editor:

On March 7, the Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit against city officials in Madison and against Wisconsin state officials on behalf of a Madison photographer who does not want to cater to the weddings of heterophobic homosexuals because doing so would make her violate her beliefs. The lawsuit challenges a local ordinance and a state law which aim to force the photographer to cater to them.

What kind of people actually believe in discriminating against and making criminals out of decent moral business people who merely don't want to cater to the weddings of heterophobic homosexuals? Could the answer possibly be "ignorant liberal bigots?" Thinking people from Plato on down have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral and a bad legal precedent.

Those laws are almost as ludicrous as the position taken by many pro-LGBT people that it is OK to ignore the feelings of decent moral parents who don't want their children to share restrooms with adult sexually confused transgenders. In other words, many pro-LGBT people place the disordered feelings of transgenders above the feelings of normal people. Truly bizarre.

Trump handily beat Clinton in part because a lot of decent moral people are getting really fed up with liberal judgmentalism, liberal self-righteousness, liberal name-calling, liberal violence and hate, liberal intolerance, and liberal bullying. Liberals are showing us just how extreme and irrational they are, how corrupt their values are. Let's use that to really do a number on them in the next elections.

Thanks, Eric. Now we know no rational discussion could take place with this nut.

I quote this opening paragraph from Wikipedia:
"Heterosexuals Organized for a Moral Environment (HOME) is an American anti-homosexuality organization founded by Wayne Lela and based in Downers Grove, Illinois. The organization's aim is "to use science, logic, and natural law to expose all the flaws in the arguments homosexuals (and bisexuals) use to try to justify homosexual activity".[2] The organization has been designated an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center[3][4] "based on their propagation of known falsehoods". Enough said, in my judgment.
