I am appalled, shocked, and saddened by the recent Colorado
amendment which removed current and future civil rights guarantees from
a select minority (homosexuals). How do Coloradians morally justify
legislating hate and repression, after the bitter and hard-won civil
rights successes in the past three decades? Will the Jews be next on
the list of non-conformists to be awarded second-class citizen status?
Are black people next to be alienated from their "unalienable" rights?
Will my sex life, as a heterosexual, some day be the business of all
the citizens of Colorado?
For the past eight years I have spent two weeks in Colorado, at
Vail, skiing. Now I can not morally justify my doing business with
Colorado by vacationing there; this year, and all future years, I'll
ski in Mammoth in California. My yearly camping trips to Bailey
Colorado will also be rescheduled to another location. I do not want
anything to do with an entire State that would strip fundamental rights
from millions of Americans.
I am ashamed of being a citizen of a Nation that would claim rights
and justice for all, but legislate hate and oppression, based solely on
the occult hallucinations of a loud out-of-control manic minority such
as "Focus on the Family" cult, which funded the new hate law. Where is
Colorado's shame? --- David Rice
