Open Letter to a University President on Race and Homosexuality

I greatly respect Robert Gagnon's wisdom, persistence, and scholarship on the issue of homosexuality.

He recently wrote an open letter to the President of the University of Toledo, suspending his Associate Vice President of Human Resources (a black, female, Christian), threatening her with worse penalties if does not recant. Her crime? Questioning the comparison of homosexual desire-and-practice with being black.

In Gagnon's letter he cites six scientific studies that demonstrate this fallacy of equality same-sex attraction and race, and he makes a brief philosophical case against incentives for homosexual practice.

Read the whole thing.
