Letter to the editor: Getting pushed around

Monday, January 6, 2014 - 10:08 am

How is it that one small segment of society, the gay community, comprising as little as 2 percent of the population, is able to compel the rest of society to stand on its head to accommodate them while the largest segment, Christians, comprising some 78 percent of the population, is told to shut up, sit down, and keep their beliefs to themselves, except for maybe Easter and Christmas?
