Issue of gay marriage not to be taken lightly

BRUCE KOCHSMEIER, Carson City

Regarding the Kit Miller article, “For the sake of tourism, let’s legalize gay marriage,” how is it that you would print an article that accuses those who would oppose gay marriage of bigotry? Is it bigotry to hold fast to a particular religious belief? Regardless of religious orientation, I suspect based on this way of thinking, we are all bigots.

The glib tone of this article is an affront to anyone who holds a particular set of values based on his or her spiritual orientation. I am disappointed that the Appeal would even run an article that fails to take this into consideration and that treats a value many hold deeply as simply a commercial issue.

Please be more thoughtful of all people in the future. Political correctness is a two-way street. This is far too often overlooked today.
