Religious Zealotry Gone Wrong

Dear Source:
To the Ohioan who wrote, "One cannot change the color of one's skin but we can choose our behavior. It is an affront to those that suffered in slavery and those that toiled to see its downfall to put same sex marriage in the same classification," my reply is that you are misinformed. Homosexuality is not a choice. It is the way God made over ten percent of the population. You are entitled to your religious views. You are not entitled to impose them on everyone else–that's in the Constitution. Read the Bill of Rights.

Dena Langdon
