Jery Tillotson’ letter needs to lighten up on the hyperbole a little [“Forrester, the Klan and Hitler: brothers under the skin?” Oct. 19 Xpress].
Tillotson compares Sen. James Forrester to Hitler, really? The gay-marriage fight is a financial one. A move for tax and insurance-rate breaks that go with “married” status.
For the record, I'm not a big fan of paying (via tax exemptions) my straight (married or unmarried) neighbors to procreate our species into starvation, either.
