Gay Pride Parade----------------------------
As a Los Altos native who attended UC Berkeley, I rode BART and the bus home on weekends to find refuge from the in-your-face radical, homosexual movement. Now that refuge is diminished.
The Los Altos Gay Pride Parade is an anathema to my cherished upbringing, in which my parents sacrificed to afford to raise our family in the best place they could in Los Altos. It’s the gay pride’s supporters who are “bigoted and narrow minded” for spending public money to fund their narcissistic agenda in one of the last family-friendly towns in the Bay Area.
Most view the strengthening of the traditional family as necessity to ensure the prosperity and the survival of our society. The majority does not embrace homosexual behavior nor does it accept the radical homosexual agenda that strikes at the heart of the traditional family structure that has incubated in Los Altos for over 100 years. This will hurt, not help, homosexual acceptance.
The proud are indeed fools as I am not alone in taking personal offense to their attack on my hometown heritage.
Gay bashing appalling
I am appalled and disappointed to see that the Daily News feels that it is important to print letters that bash other Americans (‘Gay Pride Parade’, letters, Tuesday). I don’t understand why the Daily News believes that giving a forum to gay bashers is a benefit to the community.
Would you print similar letters that attacked and question the legitimacy of African-Americans, Asians, or Hispanics? Would you give editorial space for writers making anti-Semitic or racist comments? Try replacing the letter writer’s word, “homosexual” with “Jew” or “Black” and see how bigoted and hateful his letter is.
I expect a higher standard of the Daily News than pandering to controversy for controversy sake.
I wish my letter was better written. I would like it to be more compelling and forceful. But at least I got the point out there.
