The nasty-grams on being typed right now, I can just feel it. In Tuesday’s edition of The Standard, the MSU newspaper, Andrew Simpson wrote an article on homosexuality. He’s not for it, which was apparent in some of his quotes:
“I refuse to believe that Fred Phelps and Pat Robertson are holding up the gay agenda by unfairness, intolerance and mercilessness.”Simpson goes on to say that his objection is to homosexuality and not to homosexuals. A common refrain that we have all heard before, but one that we feel is nothing more than a flimsy justification of discriminateion Simpson betrays his own true feelings, of course, stating that the prejudice against homosexuals is warranted. Since when was prejudice a moral thing? So much for not hating homosexuals. I don't hate you, I'm just prejudiced against you. Flimflam!
“Legitimizing the gay agenda will not solve the pain of rejection that is an integral part of the homosexual lifestyle.”
“This prejudice that you spoke of is warranted because people have been raised with moral standards and they feel very strongly about what behavior should and should not be acceptable, in public or otherwise.” (emphasis mine)
