‘Toxic piece of trash’ dis­guised as car­toon

The Queensland Times - - OPINION -

THIS na­tion and the LGBTQ com­mu­nity have been dragged through the mire of hate and re­crim­i­na­tions – the ref­er­en­dum was held to ap­pease what turned out to be a dis­tinct mi­nor­ity of peo­ple who wanted same-sex mar­riage to be out­lawed in this coun­try.

Not sat­is­fied with the re­sult, all peo­ple should be treated as equal, the LNP im­me­di­ately com­mis­sioned Philip Rud­dock to de­liver an out­come to com­pen­sate the pro­por­tion who voted “No”.

Well, Zanetti’s car­toon (QT 12/10) has re­gen­er­ated the non-ac­cep­tance of those have no con­trol over who they are; it is a to­tal dis­grace.

We, as re­spon­si­ble adults, should have an obli­ga­tion to teach and live in ac­cep­tance.

Ob­vi­ously some of the good church­go­ing hyp­ocrites feel some chil­dren and teach­ers will in­fect their pris­tine views in pri­vate schools.

It is gays this time, then will it be blacks, Asians – if they don’t fit the pris­tine model.

In a cul­ture that has hid­den and sup­ported crim­i­nals who de­stroyed chil­dren’s lives for decades world­wide and which is still on­go­ing, how do they have the au­dac­ity to point the fin­ger and dis­crim­i­nate at those whom, through no fault of their own, are dealt a hand that is dif­fer­ent.

It leaves me breath­less – surely the QT should should make it clear on its stance on such a toxic, un­funny and di­vi­sive piece of trash dis­guised as a car­toon. WAYNE OF­FER Tha­goona

Blood on their hands

ANY politi­cian who sup­ports the abortion law in Queens­land will have the blood of these un­born on their hands.

I would not want to be one of them when they meet their maker. ALEX PETERS Bras­sall
