Letter to the editor: State LGBTs are better off

Richard Hellstrom

At no time in history have we had a Governor that has openly rebelled against our state sodomy laws as Steve Beshear! With his executive order granting employment protections for gays and lesbians in the state government and his promise to appeal any anti-gay same-sex partner benefits bills, he has become Kentucky’s first (pro-)gay governor as in the affluence (sic) of President Obama. With the support of the community, the Masons followed his anti sodomy policy and voted against outlawing openly gay men in 2010.

Some how, Steve Beshear has captured the heart of the homosexual community and the Bible Belt in which it incumbents (sic), which has led to speculation about the state’s homosexual agendas and its futuristic policies and practices! At this point we’re just left wondering if the homosexuals and Steve Beshear aren’t going to just end up dumping tea in the Kentucky River at Fort Boonesborough or just rallying at Jacobs Park crying “Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates and their pleasures.”
