Letter in the paper today from lady sickened by front page photo of Hampshire Prez Ralph Hexter & his husband, simultaneously proclaiming her tolerance for all & wondering why people neglect the Bible, why such content isn't hidden discretely in the back pages if published at all.

Made me think of the curse of Ham.

Made me think of the angry, pinch-faced little old ladies inevitably present in films of civil rights marches.

Made me think of sermon from Greenwood, Mississippi, 1956:

“There is room in Heaven for all people,” said he. “There is a place for good white people. And there is a place for colored folks. They have their own separate Heaven, and it is just as good as ours.”

Had it with this crap, time to stop being nice about it.
