re: Confessions of a homophobe

San Luis Obispo



Thank you for allowing Otis Page to clarify his prejudice in the opinion pages (“Confession of a homophobe,” Feb.25) for it is a prejudice still held by many. Blinded by a religious fervor, they fail to see their own spiritual poverty, fail to recognize true love among others, and remain incapable of unconditional love themselves. May their intolerance serve to remind us how far we’ve come since the days of Jim Crow, universal male suffrage, and the prohibition of mixed-race marriage—all of which were upheld according to the same righteous devotion extolled by Page. In the name of Jesus Christ, he should let go of his divisive anger. His piety could be so much better directed at ending the war, instead of trying to stop love.
