CoLuMn letters to the editor
iread the article about Catholic Bishops sending
out letters telling parents to disregard Transgender
children. That is disgraceful for any religious belief
let alone for the Catholic Church.
Although I follow the Catholic belief I have turned
away from some of the Catholic Doctrines. One thing
no Church has talked about is the fact that there are
many different genders all of which fall under the
umbrella of transgender. All the churches talk about
Binary Genders “Male and Female.”
What about Intersex people for instance. We are
swept under the rugs and hidden from society like we
don’t exist. It is time the Church, all Churches wake up
to the fact that the Human is not Binary. Humans like
all Gods Creatures fall within a wide spectrum between
male and female. I for instance was born XY male but
am female. Stop looking at the Genitalia between the
legs. That doesn’t prove we are male or female.
Many of us have both tsetse and ovaries and some
of us have both a Penis and a Vagina. It is how the
hormone triggers are sent during the many staged of
development. Some hormones are sent and received
properly and children are born as anatomical Male or
Female but many hormones are not sent or received
properly according to the “Binary Rule” this is natural
not something to sweep under the rug or something
that can be changed by Corrective surgery or Social
Stop trying to make the world Binary. Inform the
world we are all loved by Jesus and Our Lord and so
should be loved by all.

Reader responds to “George Carlin Can
Now Add Fetus to His Dirty Words List”
I had a friend in the 1980s who often channeled George
Carlin! Dale was the master of taking a blithe slang term such as
“whatever” to the outer limits of impact by exclaiming instead,
“What the Shit Fuck Ever!” To cut to the chase Dale would
say, “Fuck the Dumb Shit!!” Mae West exclaimed, “Those who
are easily shocked should be shocked more often!” The GLBT
community grasped this concept at Stonewall! The people being
dragged out of the bar in handcuffs were kicking and screaming,
“DO Something!” The crowd without hesitation began pelting
“New York’s Finest” with bottles, pennies and whatever else they
could find and shouting phrases like “Gay power!” and singing
“We Shall Overcome.”
Like Hitler, Donald Trump uses his guttural style to encourage
his otherwise unwitting power base to marginalize, demonize,
and discriminate against every minority in our country and
around the world to respond with acts of violence!
The only way you can overcome a bully is by getting in their
face and not backing down! We once again, as we have often
done in the past, need to pick up our Rainbow Nation’s flag and
march gaily forward to combat our common enemies.
There are two kinds of people in our world.
My kind of people and assholes!
Have I got your attention now!
Reader responds to “Catholic Bishops Encourage Parents to
Reject Their Transgender Children”
your column “The Most Dangerous Man in
America is Donald Trump” about how Trump
is paving the way for his autocratic success in
becoming the despot American never envisioned was
on point. It’s scary. But Trump holds even greater risks
for people overseas, representing the United States.
I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Africa in the 1970s
under Jimmy Carter. I was a diplomat at the State
Department under Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush,
and Bill Clinton.
Not to be overly dramatic, but I fear that the current
administration is making it impossible for people
to want to serve the United States. Imagine you’re
a Peace Corps volunteer, somewhere in some small
village in the world, and suddenly Trump tweets
something about that nation’s lack of support for some
U.S . initiative. Your life is now at risk, as locals perhaps
decide “We don’t like Americans at this moment.”
Imagine you’re a diplomat serving somewhere
in the world, and you are making demarches to the
local government about some vote coming up at the
U.N. Then Trump tweets something contrary to that
position, and you’re left holding the bag.
I have never feared for the future of our country
as I fear now, that the damage Trump is doing (by
hollowing out the State Department, for example)
truMP iS thE MOSt dAngErOuS

will endure for a century to come.
The only thing that gives me some solace is that
journalists--like you--are keeping up the fight to
shine a light on what the current administration is
inflicting on the country. I encourage you to keep at
it, and perhaps the president’s conflicts of interest will
eventually force him from the scene.
