When reading the article in the Independent “Hamilton School Board debates LGBT protection” (March 15), I found the words of Pastor Kevin Horton of Crossroads Christian Fellowship in Victor very rude, disrespectful and hurtful. I am of Christian faith and believe in the Bible. Because I am a homosexual does not mean that I can’t be Christian. God said to love everyone equally. I think that passing the proposal to prohibit discrimination and bullying against LGBT students and teachers would make a lot of people who are LGBT feel safer, and teens wouldn’t have to worry about being teased.
