He evidences the General Assembly’s rejection of a higher cigarette tax. Implicitly, he will have us believe that tobacco temperance is “progressive” and higher cigarette taxes will aid the temperance cause. Jerry Abramson may agree with Welp, since not too long ago Abramson made a public statement referring to the controversial smoking ban as “progressive.”

Jones’ Message to the People column published in the April 30 LEO, titled “Obamamania wants your soul. Just ask Tavis Smiley.” I agree with Mr. Jones after watching Mr. Smiley conducting interviews and being interviewed that indeed Mr. Smiley is no shyster, bum, nor intellectual lightweight. It is not only Mr. Smiley’s right to raise thought-provoking questions that demand in depth answers of both candidates, regardless of color, but also his obligation as a television personality and commentator.

It is false that all religion is aligned against gay people. It is false that all gays are “liberals” and that all “liberals” are pro-gay. It is false that, in challenging those who wish to dehumanize us, we are somehow intolerant. It is false that being gay is akin to being greedy or some other flaw. Being gay is just simply who we are and is as often an expression of our best selves as our lesser. Sojourn’s hostility is belied by its terminology — the “H word” is not one our friends use.

Erosia Xtra: Sojourn responds to April 9 LEO cover story

Dear Mr. George,Thanks for the work you did on the LEO article about Sojourn. We weren’t sure what to expect, but at the end of the day, we all tend to think the article was pretty fair and pretty accurate. There were a couple of issues we felt the need to bring up:

But I happily commend Stephen George for his open-minded examination of Sojourn in “Smells Like Holy Spirit” (LEO, April 9). The anticipated hysteria came from “progressively”-minded letter writers in Erosia. Attacks included the phrases “… the stench of patriarchy” and “... your typical, right-wing nuthouse preaching prejudice and hate,” to “… a bunch of homophobes who treat women as second-class citizens …” and a statement even equating Sojourn with white supremacists.
