Thanks to Nancy Norburn Gladfelter for speaking out: Record prints homophobic letter (again):

Letter: Ignorant letter looks casts bad light on St. Augustine
Ignorant letter looks bad for your city

Ignorant letter looks bad for your city

Editor: Your choice of letters printed in “Opinions” has me scratching my head and rethinking who are the kind of people who live in St Augustine. “Of gays and God” is so ignorant, so uninspiring, and so non-persuasive that it casts a very poor light on St Augustine. Maybe the reader should listen to the Pope’s opinion (I am not Catholic) and look at heterosexual divorce rates (I am not homosexual) before casting stones — but that is beside the point.

Please choose letters that are at least semi-intelligent. Do not make St. Johns County look ignorant (and a place that someone would not want to move to), and that point out a perspective worthy of consideration.

By the way, we need more updates on repairing the eroding beaches to keep the fire under our legislators and those who could fund such critical projects.

Bridgewater, N.J.

Editor’s note: Ms. Gladfelter said by phone that she’s interested in local issues because St. Augustine is on a short-list of three cities she and her husband are seeking to move to.
