LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Disagreement isn’t discrimination
It is unfathomable why a big influential company felt the need to issue an apology for Chris Broussard’s honest and respectful response to a question that he was asked (“ESPN apologizes for Chris Broussard’s conservative Christian views of homosexuality,” Web, April 30). It is almost comical how fearful America has become of people who dare speak honestly and who stand up for their faith.
Humans are all different, with different beliefs and values. Why is that so incomprehensible to the gay community, a group that goes far and beyond to demand respect for what they believe, yet has been a driving force against anyone else who asks for the same courtesy?
Mr. Broussard is a much-needed kind of role model for today’s youth. All children see and hear in the news these days is bickering and mudslinging. In a world where dishonesty, discrimination and deceit in character run rampant, Mr. Broussard showed only maturity. Honesty without malice cannot be confused with hate. He even says that although he and ESPN writer LZ Granderson differ in their beliefs about homosexuality, that doesn’t change how they get along. Did anyone read that part of the article?
It is not discriminatory to disagree. If anything, the homosexual people who shot back with nasty, accusing words are the ones discriminating. It’s time for America to face the fact that we are all different — and be mature enough to handle honest responses without throwing a hissy fit.
