Letter to the editor: Real people with real rights

In response to Gloria Lehr (“Pushing back at gay agenda,” April 2), I’m pleased to report that we have moved into the 21st century.

Blacks are now allowed to vote and sit anywhere in the bus; people of all religions — even Muslims — can worship where they choose; we don’t lock away people with disabilities; people hold hands and kiss in public; men take family leave to care for sick children.

And LGBT people are real people with real emotions and real rights. Discrimination in the name of religion doesn’t fly anymore.

During one of the most sacred times of the year for people of several religions, shouldn’t we be focusing on acceptance and tolerance rather than anger and hate?
