The Sept. 21 vote by Langley Township council to allow the painting of a rainbow crosswalk is a remarkable affair, in that council assumes that a majority of TOL residents are in agreement with showing the colours of the LGBTQ community in a crosswalk between two government buildings. Their assumption may be wrong.
The gay lifestyle is of no concern to me. What two consenting adults do privately is their affair.
But showing the rainbow colours is more than a statement of ‘tolerance’ for this lifestyle. This, and the exhibitionism shown in gay pride parades, is an endorsement of this lifestyle; even an encouragement.
We live in a world of smokescreens and warped realities. This has led to the blurring of lines between what is natural and what is not. In this age of political correctness, it takes vision, strength and courage to speak out for ones believes and convictions. Councillor Margaret Kunst has done so and I commend her for her courage.
