Letter: More Obama ideology

January 20, 2014 

Breaking news: "U.S. State Department warns Americans -- especially gays -- about Sochi Games." Before this ominous headline, Obama picked three openly gay athletes for the delegation representing America at the games.

Trust me, I've had friendships with two "non-traditional marriage partners," and I have the greatest respect for both of these friendships. With that in mind, I would like to express my deepest disdain and lack of professional respect for our president for endangering the lives of a few human beings to promote his ideology. Once again, shame on our president for promoting his platform at the expense of the individual, let alone at the expense of America.
