Recent Commenter

A recent commenter on my blog has a letter to the editor in this morning's Distorter. Marriage issue 'yes' OKs discrimination
Among other preposterous contentions, she is literally saying schools will teach students not just about gays, but how to actually become gay. She even argues that, with schools' "recommendation to experiment," children will be urged to engage in homosexuality. That line of thought has the unique distinction of being both laughable and disgusting at the same time.
Sadly, this is already the case. There are schools in New York and California who ARE pushing the agenda. You might say we are in Wisconsin, and this isn't New York, and it's too cold to be California. That's the point....we don't WANT TO BE!
The truth, of course, is that nothing will change if the amendment doesn't pass. Life in Wisconsin will continue, just as it is today. Remember, voting "no" on the amendment means keeping things the way they are now.
Again, sadly, this is not the case. There are lawsuits already gearing up to challenge the law.
If you're like (the writer) and believe schools will encourage and instruct students how to be gay, vote "yes." If you believe that not amending the Constitution will spell the end of the human race (also implied by the writer, vote "yes."
What the writer said "Nature and common sense teaches that without the male-female relationship, the human race would cease to exist" happens to be true. Will it happen? No, of course not. We aren't all gay, obviously!
However, if you feel that it is wrong to discriminate, vote "no." This nation has a long enough history of discrimination. Let's not add to it.
I don't see this as discrimination. I see it as a group of people asking for "special" consideration. As someone who was raised in the south during the 50s and 60s, I've seen and heard all the discrimination I can handle. This ain't it!
