I am writing in response to an editorial in your April 28 paper. It was about a man who was raised in a good Mormon family and still turned out gay. He thinks that all the controversy in Utah over the gay-lesbian issue is actually helping to promote pro-gay ideas.
The whole dispute about East High School students wanting to form a gay-lesbian club has increased awareness about gay prejudice. I have never thought about this particular issue from that point of view before and I think it is one that a lot of people should think about. I think our city needs to find out more about gay people and their situation before criticizing them. I have met many gay people and they are some of the kindest, most friendly people I have ever met. Our city and its residents need to stop being so judgmental about people's lifestyles just because they are different from their own.Jane Nelson
