This is in response to the letter "Homosexual lifestyle promoted." (June 13, Letters)
Nobody is promoting or celebrating a homosexual lifestyle (except the people involved, and they should); however, defending would be correct.
It is about time that people learn to live and let live. As long as nobody is hurting you or your family, what other people do should be of no concern to you. People who were afraid for years to acknowledge their lifestyle can now finally (in most cases) do so.
Do you really think that this world is coming to an end because homosexuality (that has always existed) has finally been brought out into the open? Do you think that anyone in their right mind would choose to be gay? Do you think that homosexuals are maybe "heathens"? They are like everyone else, and have different religions, and belong to different churches.
You mention a God-fearing nation; this will always be a God-fearing nation because millions of people still believe like you do. Homosexuals do not force their lifestyle on anyone, so extend them the courtesy and don't force your lifestyle on them.
