'Society Needs Some Serious Healing'

February 11, 1993

I never write letters to the editor, but I couldn't let James I. Reese's letter of Jan. 14 go without a response.

Reese states that he is "not a member of the Moral Majority or an ultraconservative Christian," but his canceling his subscription because of "blatant homosexual advertising" indicates that he is, at the very least, archaic, narrow-minded and ignorant.

Homosexuality is not a vice or a disease. What is truly sick is the attitude that one in 10 people should not be allowed to express their sexuality.

Reese's letter, and even more so the tragic incident in Laguna Beach where a high school student allegedly beat a gay man nearly to death recently, show that our society needs some serious healing so that we can learn to love and accept one another.

By the way, I am a happily married heterosexual.
