Letter to the Editor 2-21-14

Dear Editor,
 Those opposed to House Bill 2453, which aims at keeping individuals, groups and businesses in Kansas from being compelled to help with same-sex weddings evidently haven't learned from the past. In a way, weren't we here a couple thousand years ago??? The ancient and primitive Greeks and Romans crassly valued homosexual relations. But eventually the people wised up and realized that was a mistake (e.g., Plato condemned homosexual activity), and homosexual activity was again logically deemed unethical and was basically driven underground.
 Now, misguided “progressives” are trying to take us back thousands of years to more primitive and decadent times, despite the fact that thinking people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral and a bad legal precedent. (It's easy to show that all the arguments homosexuals use to try to rationalize homosexual activity are seriously flawed.)
 It may surprise you that some colleges like Harvard now have officially recognized student groups devoted to promoting the acceptance of BDSM–sexually deviant bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism. That's right. If you are a student who gets turned on by smacking people around, some colleges like Harvard now have groups for you! Bizarre. (Are Neanderthals running that school?)
 He who has eyes to see, let him see. The “logic” of heterophobic homosexuals is rapidly leading this society down a slippery slope to a more and more aberrant, disordered and irrational society. Polygamy is coming soon. Maybe down the line we'll see “marriage” between straight and homosexual consenting-adult incestuous people!  Whoopee!  Anyone who thinks this is progress is deluding him/herself. Rome didn't fall in a day. But it did fall. Let's not join the race to the bottom.
