It's not just the homeless ... 

I would like to add to Rev. James Shaffer's letter concerning the homeless ("Homelessness is a reality for us all," April 14-21). The reverend states, "Since racism is no longer politically correct (or legal), the small-minded have turned to the last bastion of bigotry: homelessness."

To which I add: It is sad for me to say Rev. Shaffer, but your statement falls short. Homosexuals are also being targeted by bigots, and they too are making laws so discrimination is legal unless you are heterosexual.

And in your advice for us to stop and say hi to a homeless person where we may discover they are human after all, I would say get to know someone who is homosexual, you may again be surprised that he or she is human too.
