Labels do nothing toward peaceful communities
I read David E. Smith's letter of Jan. 13. There was nothing unusual about it. He continues to blame the media for promoting a false narrative. He still promotes himself and his organization as defenders of marriage, assuming that without the crusade to rescue it, it would perish. What caught my attention was his reference to "homosexual" state Rep. Greg Harris.
Gender preference is private. It does not define who we are. We are all human beings, inherently deserving of the same rights and mutual respect. I noticed Mr. Smith did not refer to himself as "heterosexual' David Smith.
If we are to achieve a loving, peaceful community, which I hope is a mutual concern, then search for what we have in common, not our differences. Stop labeling people. The right to legal marriage for gays and lesbians is not just a "homosexual" issue. It concerns achieving equal human rights, which affects all of us.
