I am writing in response to Vi McCoy's letter (Herald, Aug. 28) regarding demon gays in the military and her other letters to the editor printed by The Durango Herald. I am fairly certain the Herald would not continually choose to print hateful anti-Semitic, racially insensitive or sexually inappropriate pieces written by the same local angry fanatic.
I am curious, therefore, why a consistent gay-bashing public platform has been granted to one member of our community. There are an infinite number of interesting issues in this world around us, and so many intelligent voices with diverse opinions to choose from.
Please consider reflecting our town's attitudes with a bit more balance, civility and grace. It may just be time to put the hate mail to rest.
Nancy Reno, Durango
