Why all the hate?

Adie Bonebrake, Minot

I’m not surprised in the slightest, but I am appalled. Steve Moen wrote a letter two weeks ago in regards to the LGBTQ+ community, and how our congressional delegates haven’t drank any of the LGBTQ+ “Kool-Aid.”

So first off, I’m disappointed that a letter bleeding with such hate would be published in the first place. I understand it’s an opinion, but when it’s clearly written to undermine a minority, it’s a plain and simple shame. That kind of letter belongs on a Fox News fan website.

Nobody is cramming the “sinful lifestyle” down your throats. It isn’t a sin to be gay. It isn’t a sin to be straight. It’s just who we are. These are people’s lives you’re talking about here, real breathing humans. Just like you.

And if you’re going to bring religion into all this, didn’t Jesus say love thy neighbor as thyself? Because a proud lesbian from ND is your neighbor. And I drank the Kool-Aid, and it was delicious!
