LGBT rights

In the April 10 In Depth section, Leonard Pitts Jr.’s column, Fat, poor and sick — but free to discriminate, and Tony Pugh article, Businesses take lead opposing laws targeting LGBT people, are both pure liberal, secular progressive hypocrisy.

They imply that the LGBT community has the right to receive service from everybody, while denying everybody else the right to deny service. When I lived in Louisville in the ’60and ’70s, I never went back to a store I thought was prejudiced against Hispanics.

Pitts’ last sentence says a gay man “can buy doughnuts anywhere,” and that is exactly the point. Why would he want to buy doughnuts at a place he is not wanted.
