No Shades of Gray



Dr. Gregory Clark has played a rather crummy trick on a group of people he clearly despises [“Broken Bridge,” June 14, City Weekly]. The Mormons Building Bridges crowd is obviously not very progressive on the subject of gay rights, but the idea that they would countenance the killing of gays is nasty and absurd.

And yes, the MBB won’t break with their religion and become real proponents of gay rights—is this really a surprise?

The problem with beating up on moderates is that presently you may find that there are no moderates. And maybe that will be fine with Clark—after all, isn’t it easier getting rid of all shades of gray and just having neat, simple black and white?
