BW Barkley argues that gay men and women should 'keep their sexuality to themselves' (NCE 13 July). I fully support him.
Just because the law and society accepts homosexual behaviour does not mean that it should be promoted or accepted as normal. I fail to see why positive exposure is required to make homosexuals an integral part of our profession and society; their sexuality is irrelevant.
I treat homosexuals the same as everyone else. My philosophy is simple - love the sinner, not the sin. The problem with the gay movement is that it promotes homosexual relationships as being acceptable and equal alternatives to marriage and I am sure that the majority of people find this offensive and deplorable. I would not expect any gay member of my family to have the benefits offered to married couples and consider the term discrimination to be inappropriate in this context.
Should I find that the ICE is promoting unnatural behaviour, then I will not hesitate in resigning. If that makes me 'out of date and a bigot' then I'm proud to stand up and be counted.
