To the Editor:
Once again, our legislators in Providence have made the wrong choice according to your front page story in the July 6th edition of The Warwick Beacon, titled “No dash to get united under new civil unions law.” Why am I surprised, as they do it all of the time. This time they caved into Bishop Tobin and the oh so good Christians in the State who think that heterosexual people are better than homosexual people, so they deserve more by way of civil rights.
When I was a little girl in my first year of Catechism class one of the questions and answers the class had to memorize was, “Who made you?” And, the answer was “God made me.” I don’t know if there were any homosexual children in that class, but I’m sure there were some in other classes of the same ilk and they had to memorize the same answers I did.
So my question to Christians, especially Catholic readers is: Did my catechism lie?
In the 12 years I studied my faith, not once did any of my teachers, which included priests, nuns and lay people mention that heterosexual people deserved more rights than homosexual people.
But, since the Governor, according to the above noted story, signed the civil unions law, I suggest that all homosexual couples who would prefer marriage to this “holier than thou” law, go to the State House and their Town Halls and demand a decrease in their state income and town property taxes, due to the fact that they do not have the civil rights of their heterosexual neighbors.
God didn’t discriminate, why are people doing so?
