Mother looks forward to Pride festival

| July 1, 2022 7:00 AM

I would like to respond to Mr. Donnerberg's letter of June 21.

As a mother of someone in the LGBTQIA community I have a few things to say.

First, this "homosexual agenda: you speak of is totally in your head and used as a fear mongering tool.

I fear the "Christian agenda" much more. You and your like spread nothing but fear and hate. "There is no hate quite like Christian love"

All people want is equality and nothing more than to live their lives as they choose and to be happy and safe. Human rights are not a pie where if they get more you get less.

As for the pride festival next month, I am happy and thrilled that those of us who love and support our family members in the LGBTQIA community will have a chance to come together and show it.

Their community espouses nothing but love and inclusivity. Yours espouses hatred and prejudice.

I am aware that there are many wonderful, loving, accepting members of the Christian community and this is not directed at you.

As for my daughter and I, we will be there excited to have a fun time. As for you and your kind, I hope you have the day you serve.
