Your Opinion: No apology for supporting Scouts

Dear Editor:

I sincerely hope Mr. Ruprecht, you aren’t holding your breath while awaiting any apology, because none will be forthcoming.

No offense to homosexuals/pedophiles was purposely intended by my letter. If you you/they took offense to it, that is your/their problem to deal with.

My intent was to emphasize the need to protect children — their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual health. Your letter indicated you have no such concern, only that homosexuals/pedophiles were offended. Far too many children are used and abused in terrible, ugly ways when they are helpless and powerless to protect themselves.

I still say kudos to the Boy Scouts of America for their firm stand on disallowing homosexuals into their leadership ranks.

Issue-oriented letters to the editor in response to this or about other local topics are welcome. All letters should be limited to 400 words. The author's name must appear with the letter, and the name, address and phone number provided for verification. Letters that cannot be verified by telephone will not be published.
