I have never commented on LEO magazine. I'm not an expert on it because despite frequently publishing good and thoughtful articles, I am not a fan of the vulgar language and pornography they also publish.
Leo panders to gay readers, and if that's a big percentage of the audience, then why wouldn't it? But last week owner and publisher Aaron Yarmuth wrote -- I guess you would call it -- an editorial, asking people to come out to the state fair to protest what he calls the hatred of the Kentucky Farm Bureau. The Farm Bureau is a collaborative owned and run by farmers, and they have apparently failed to embrace and support all things gay. Therefore, according to Mr. Yarmuth, they are hateful and intolerant.
You know, I find Mr. Yamuth's position to be intolerant. We don't all share the same values, nor should we. And just because people believe to their core that marriage is between a man and a woman, that doesn't mean they hate anyone. Or that they are un-American, as Mr. Yarmuth claims. If the gay community wants more tolerance and acceptance, then they need to respect other people’s core values and stop screaming that anyone who doesn’t support every aspect of the gay agenda is a hater. There is plenty of room for everyone.
Call and tell us what you think. I can't wait.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my Point of View.
