‘Satanic freaks’ have rights

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

I’d like to take a moment to remind Corene Fisher that the lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transsexuals, two-spirited queers, and other weirdos that had their gathering in Norris Park last weekend are all taxpaying citizens, just like Corene Fisher, and all have the same rights under our constitution that Corene Fisher has.

The event organizers applied for the permit, just like other event organizers have; paid for the permit, just like other event organizers have; and had their event just like other event organizers have had. Our town leaders approved the permit for the event because they do not discriminate against people or groups based upon their sex, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, creed, race, or ethnicity. That is the law, and no one, including Corene Fisher, is above the law.

The days of the hypocritical, holier-than-thou Protestant Christian stranglehold on our community are rapidly coming to an end, and we can thank the Founding Fathers and our own broad-minded local leaders for that.

Folks, this is the United States of America, and we are all equal under the U.S. Constitution. That includes all the gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals, weirdos, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, Democrats, bikers, cowboys, professional wrestlers, hair stylists, Republicans, African-Americans, deists, atheists, Wiccans, pagans, little people, rappers, porn stars, lawyers, fry cooks, bass fishermen, teachers, political leaders, Native Americans, tattoo artists, NSU students, doorbell repairmen, and all others from all walks of life – including local narrow-minded, judgmental religious hypocrites.
