Silence is not an option

I  have a wide berth for everyone’s personal beliefs and try to resist negative responses but some of the comments I have heard or read lately upset me. When you refer to persons who are gay as gremlins, or when you posit that Ebola is God’s revenge for gay marriage then silence is not an option. I doubt that anyone who has had personal knowledge or friendship with a person whose sexual orientation is different than theirs could utter these beliefs. However, there are still laws on the books and penalties for being different .Therefore I can respect others who differ on the issues of sexual preference but cannot be silent when it comes to depriving others of their constitutional rights. As a straight man with all the privileges I have the responsibility to openly support the rights of all.
