Dear Editor,

On March 1 the Michigan Senate passed an egregiously bad bill, Senate Bill 4, which now goes to the House. This regressive piece of legislation, if enacted into law, would do nothing less than green light discrimination against, legal persecution of, and making criminals out of decent, moral businesspeople (e.g., bakers, photographers) who merely don’t want to cater to heterophobic homosexuals. Truly bizarre.

Thinking people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is clearly immoral (Plato, for example, perceptively taught that over two thousand years ago) and a bad legal precedent. Many other intellectuals over the years have also deprecated homosexual activity. It is relatively easy to point out serious flaws in all the arguments heterophobic homosexuals use to try to rationalize homosexual activity. So, to put VOLUNTARY, aberrant, homosexual activity on the same level as, for examples, INVOLUNTARY skin color or age is flat-out absurd and is downright offensive to many people of color.

These are strange times we live in, where people whose values are upside-down and backward actually think they are “progressive” while they are trying to take us back over 2000 years to ancient Greek and Roman times when relatively primitive and ignorant people irrationally valued homosexual activity. Talk about being on the wrong side of history! Unreal.

Someday people in the future are going to look back at this era and wonder how so many people naively fell for clearly irrational LGBT propaganda. The House should unanimously vote down this discriminatory bill.
