There Is No Choice On Gay Rights | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

There Is No Choice On Gay Rights

Letter to the editor

I congratulate the Mormon Church as difficult as that is for their stance on giving gays equal rights in housing and employment, i.e. an anti-discrimination ordinance, long overdue. A giant step for the Mormon Church, in the face of their belief that homosexuality is a sin! They hold this belief in spite of the fact that gays are born predisposed to homosexuality - it's innate. It could be a sin perhaps, if it was a choice, but it's not! Their next giant step will be the realization that gays are equal in rights to Mormons. Equality of all people is stated in amendment 14, Sec. 1 of the U.S. Constitution. The Mormon Church must think again before opposing gay marriage to their equals! I look forward to congratulating the Church at that time. But, will I live long enough?
