I write with two matters that caused disgust.
The large advertisement of the Jesus Party (March 3), signifying it’s coming out of the closet, etc., was extremely upsetting and very distasteful.
Instead of the Rev. Douglas Taylor “coming out of the closet,” perhaps he should have taken a few moments to get his head out of the Bible and check his facts — that transgender people are not “gay,” as he is implying. Perhaps the funds he is requesting could be put aside for him to go back to school to learn the facts before him. Also, the large amount of money spent on that large advertisement would have helped toward that goal of education for him.
I am also disgusted that the Sun Journal would allow such an advertisement. If that ad had been of the sort that made some sort of degrading reference to African-Americans, Jews or whatever, I am quite sure it would not have been allowed to run.
I know what the cost of advertisements is for the Sun Journal, and I do suppose it does help keep the newspaper going instead of having a free letter to the editor printed.
Shame on the Sun Journal.
