I read the Commentary by Sheldon. It was very enlightening. I agree that we need to have compassion for the homosexual--but dismay, to say the least, at their chosen life style.
However, under no circumstances should the homosexuals continue to be given minority status. They in no way fit the criteria. They never have and never will. Their insistence on being given a minority status will cause a backlash against true minorities that will be devastating to the whole civil rights cause.
