Re: Modest proposal about immodest acts, Oct.9

To the Editor:
I would like to address the overwhelming number of responses generated by Professor Carroll's opinion piece. Perhaps my interpretation is wrong, but I took the article as a tongue-in-cheeck rebuttal to homophobia, not as a direct attack on heterosexuality. In my humble opinion, those of you who took offense to this article need to get a sense of humour! In response to Mark Foerster's mentioning of left out passages from the bible that condemn homosexuality, I think they were left out on purpose; to reflect the ridiculousness of the argument. The piece was pure satire and I would personally like to congratulate Professor Carroll on his brilliant display of humour in a much too serious world.
