Re: “Gay lobbyists ‘forcing ideology’ on youth,” June 10

Reading Mike Schouten’s letter to the editor, lately a candidate for the Christian Heritage Party in our last federal election, both amazed and shocked me.

His ability to basically state bullying is bad, especially those homosexual bullies, amazed me. He seems to be stuck in that us and them world; us the good and them the bad. His comments try to validate homosexuals as different, not equal, prone to physical and emotional perils. His comments are hateful.

I am shocked that as a front man for the policies of the Christian Heritage Party and no doubt a follower of Jesus he has forgotten that his God would love thy neighbour as thyself, and that only God judges.

Maybe if he taught his children that all are brothers and sisters and all are made in the image of his God there would be less need for anti-bullying classes in the first place.
