Lifestyle harms gays, not society

The purpose of my letter ('Sick of gay mafia's militant tactics, Irish Independent, February 25) was to express my disgust at the deplorable disrespect shown to an elected public representative, Lucinda Creighton, for communicating her personal, private opinion on the issue of gay marriage.

The reason I mentioned my religious background was that I believe the tolerance and understanding that has been shown to me by Catholics and other Christians could teach those who 'crucified' Ms Creighton a thing or two about charity and compassion.

I do not need to appeal to my religious convictions to call into question the cosy consensus concerning the societal value of same-sex activity.
