I was disappointed to read the letter by Christy White complaining that the "Rainbow Pride" float, sponsored by a group promoting acceptance of LGBT people, doesn't belong in the Lodi Parade of Lights. For Christy White, this somehow conflicts with her "family values."
She also incorrectly implies that "sexual activities" were promoted by the Rainbow Project float and that LGBT people are not family-oriented.
I was glad to see the Rainbow Project float in the parade. It's about time we celebrate the diversity of people in this area! Christy needs to learn that "Hate is NOT a family value."
Bigotry wrapped in "family values" is still bigotry.
