Letter to the editor: Sexual preference doesn’t matter

I have always considered myself musically inclined. Since I was a little girl, my family has been musical, whether we are listening to music, singing or playing it ourselves.

I love all genres and enjoy various different artists. Since the first time I saw Adam Lambert I knew he was special.

This season of “American Idol” has brought us a talented group of people, but the others pale in comparison to Adam. He is the total package.

Having sang his praises, I must say the media attention he has been getting is ridiculous.

Hold on Adam fans.

I think it is ridiculous because it’s been more about his sexual orientation than about his talent.

He deserves to win this competition and there are those who won’t vote simply because of the outpour of negativity surrounding this 24-year-old’s name.

I am ashamed we have come so far and yet still seem to be stuck in our same old closed-minded rut!

This young man has not used the Idol stage to promote homosexuality at all. In fact, if it weren’t for the vultures trying to dig up dirt, we would be unaware of this issue.

He is simply trying to promote his God-given gift that is undeniable. The last time I checked our voice box has no sexual preferences.

What upsets and embarrasses me the most is to call myself a Christian alongside some of these people who are denouncing Adam’s talent only because they don’t agree with his life choices.

I refer all to Matthew 7:1: “Judge not, that you be not judged.”
