How predictable to see Dr. Ben Carson bullied by the militant gay lobby for speaking the truth — that unlike skin color, being gay is ultimately a choice (“Ben Carson cites prison as proof that homosexuality is a choice,” Web, March 4). No doubt there are many difficult contributing predispositional and environmental factors that determine a person’s sexuality, but Dr. Carson was right the first time. A gay lifestyle is a choice. How disappointing to see Dr. Carson cave to the bullies.

For those of us who are religious Jews, Christians and Muslims, who are compassionate yet convinced of a universal, God-given moral code, we hope to find a 2016 presidential candidate who will have the courage to speak the truth and then stand up to the bullying, difficult as it may be.
