Greg,

Upon further thought I want to make my personal position clear. (note - this
paragraph is MY opinion, not the official position of the Denver VOICE) I
support this agenda because of people who find it necessary to push your
morals upon others. If you don't support this so what. Where do you get off
calling people perverts. You don't know me nor do you have in depth
knowledge of the lives of others. Pervert is YOUR moral judgment. It is
because of people who think they can speak for all of society that there has
to be a petition like this. It is to protect a minority group from people
who would act to further disenfranchise them.

This is my personal opinion and not that of the Denver VOICE though the
Denver VOICE does follow the following guidelines: (note I put some parts in
bold face type to make them more clear)

EDITORIAL POLICY of the Denver VOICE
*	The Denver Voice reserves the right to do whatever we want.  We are
aware that on occasion this may offend somebody.
*	The Denver Voice reserves the right to refuse or edit articles which
promote or encourage deleterious or harmful and oppressive stereotypes of
human behavior.  
*	The Denver Voice seeks to represent the variety of opinion on issues
related to poverty and socially perceived injustice, with the hope of
stimulating dialogue and debate.  In accepting pieces  which are critical of
individuals or particular civic or service organizations, the Denver VOICE

*	Material will be edited for spelling and syntax error, unless

not give the DV a way to contact them, this may result in the piece not
being used at all. Priority will be given to publishing the work of people
who have directly experienced being homeless.

Who we are:

members of the community who are homeless, formerly homeless and
disenfranchised.
*	We challenge society's myths about homelessness, and stereotypes

"no."

And I'd like to ask; Why is the Denver Voice being so supportive of "The
Homosexual/Gay Agenda?"

Is the Denver Voice a "Homeless(ness)" street paper or a "Homosexual/Gay
Agenda" rag?

I went to that linked website and all I saw was the opportunity to be in
agreement with the petition. Where was the opportunity to DISAGREE to this
outrageousness?

Denver Voice, personally, I think you're out of touch with reality. Even if
ya'll want to tout that homosexuals need to find support from society in
order to curb people to falling into homelessness, still, it is that kind
of fimicolated diatribe that wrongfully influences people to even consider
being a pervert.

To ask for constitutional acceptance of perversion is equivalent to asking
for constitutional acceptance of murder, rape, stealing, deception, and
any/every other crime.

I believe that many many more people will agree as I do.

And as for a side note, I do recognize that many people are kicked out of
their homes or rejected by their families as a result of "coming out of
their closets" about wanting to be perverted in their thinking and
consequentially in their conduct and behavior, but homelessness is not
about whether a person is found sleeping outside merely because of what
they believe. Homelessness is about anybody being found sleeping outside
merely for want of affordable and reasonable accommodations. Whether a
person is or has been a criminal, a pervert, a liar, a cheat, or whatever;
every person has an inherent right to affordable and reasonable
accommodations. Please, do not to cloud the issue about homelessness.
