LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Liberal outrage is misplaced
I am appalled that renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson was forced to withdraw from a speaking opportunity because “he believes in traditional marriage” and mentioned homosexuality along with bestiality and pedophilia (“The intolerant left,” Comment & Analysis, April 15). Those who have shunned Dr. Carson might one day need his medical expertise to save their child, no matter how he may have been conceived. Would Dr. Carson refuse medical aid if the parents did not believe in traditional marriage?
Former Bush adviser Karl Rove was called a “murderer” and “terrorist” yet true murderers and terrorists are by today’s liberal standards considered misguided young people who have resorted to violence because their unknown fathers are imprisoned solely as a result of the color of their skin. The recent planned speech of Rick Santorum, former Pennsylvania senator, at a high school in a Detroit suburb was canceled “because some parents were concerned that their children would be exposed to Mr. Santorum’s conservative political views,” though it was subsequently rescheduled. Are you kidding? Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry told The Washington Post a few years ago that when he goes to a restaurant, he wants to see people who look like him. Political commentator Melissa Harris-Perry says parents make the mistake of thinking their children are theirs when, in fact, children belong to the community. (We should all send our children to her so she can help pay for college, in that case.) Marc Lamont Hill chided former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for joining a golf club, saying if you are the only black person in the room or the only female, you are probably in the wrong room.
There is so much anger today. You have the right to your beliefs, but remember that I have the right to my beliefs. Is this really what you want your child to learn?
