So Windy City Times editor Dan Perreten (Hot Type, June 6) thinks “the language of sin and redemption has worked well for thousands of years”?!

Tell it to the Jews, sodomites, accused witches, and other “sinners” in medieval Europe, Dan. Especially the sodomites who were thrown on the bonfires to make them foul enough to burn witches–thus the word “faggots.”

How sad that the cause of gay pride should be entrusted to the puritanical hands of Windy City Times’s managing minister–I mean editor.
