Guns & God 

Responding to our cover story on the massacre in Orlando and our call for more robust gun control, Ray Ubinger of the Libertarian Party of Durham writes: "Governments murdered 262 million people last century. That equals 146 Orlando nightclub massacres every single day of the 1900s. So yeah, let's have them decide who can and can't buy a gun. Concentrated political power in the most dangerous thing in the world. Several times deadlier than even war."

Ronald C. Tanciar, meanwhile, disapproves of our coverage of LGBTQ issues: "First, why do you even waste the ink in your paper to write about transgender people? Who cares! Their [sic] just crying foul because they think they are now classified as a minority and that their [sic] being persecuted. Please! Anything to promote their agenda. It's bad enough that Hollywood is doing it.

"When God gives a society up, they plunge into sexual sin, and then they sink deeper into homosexual sin, so while homosexuality is a forgivable sin, and categorically, no worse than others, when it happens on a societal level, it is evidence that when a society affirms it, when it becomes normal in a society, that is evidence that God has turned that society over. If you look at America, you could look back to the sexual revolution of the sixties, which has now become a homosexual revolution of the nineties, in which the homosexuals have redefined themselves as a minority, like a racial group of people demanding rights.

"We all have rights. Right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That goes for all legal Americans. If the sexually perverted individual wishes to continue to holler foul, then leave the USA. The American people are tired of bleeding hearts hollering minority."

A recent Pew poll found that only 37 percent of Americans oppose same-sex marriage, so maybe the American people aren't quite as sick of "bleeding hearts hollering minority" as Ronald imagines.
