Letter: Religionists should realize there’s more to ‘normal’
First Published Mar 08 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 08 2014 01:01 am

Religionists in Utah (and other states) promote unsustainable values. The myth that the past was better and that it didn’t have all the problems of today keeps conservatives focused on the wrong things.

Poverty, abuse, homosexuality and many other things have been around since the dawn of man. The thought that if we ignore problems or, better yet, outlaw those we don’t consider normal it will make them go away has proven as futile as the war on drugs.

The will to survive has always won in nature. The homosexual community will find a way to love and be loved.

So, if religionists pull their head out of ignorance and understand normal has a much wider range than their faith, then real problems can be solved. No one asks them to stop practicing their faith, just to understand it is not the only value on earth and shouldn’t be the law of the land.
