Hypocrisy endorsing oppression
A perverse agenda?
In a letter to the editor in Sunday’s paper, Brian Travis of Lynnwood finds “same-sex marriage not only repulsive, but also a naked usurpation of the rights of Washington state voters” [“A perverse agenda,” Northwest Voices, Feb. 1].
He then goes on to advise supporters of homosexual marriage to place it on the ballot and let those same voters decide.
Talk about repulsive.
In his blatant bigotry and homophobia, Travis in one breath decries “usurpation” of voters’ rights and in the next advocates that those same voters should determine (usurp) the rights of an entire group of fellow citizens.
This is hypocrisy of the worst kind. It’s hypocrisy that endorses oppression. Across this country, people’s rights are being put to a vote. Think about that. Law-abiding, taxpaying citizens’ rights are on the ballot.
Now that is a perverse agenda.
