Thank you for cancelling bigot banquet

Dennis Igoe Manager,
Naperville Holiday Inn
Naperville, Illinois

Dear Mr Igoe:

It has just come to our attention that you canceled a banquet by “Americans For Truth,” an antigay hate organization. We thank-you for doing so, given that antigay hate under the guise of religion is still hate. Similarly, anti-immigrant hate under the guise of patriotism is the real agenda of the Minuteman Project, a group barred from another Holiday Inn in Crystal Lake.

No doubt Peter LaBarbera had our organization, Gay Liberation Network, in mind when he informed you that “homosexual organizations” might picket his hate fest.

It has become the cant of bigot organizations like Americans For Truth to cry that there is “anti-christian discrimination” at work whenever anyone stands up for fair play, such as in this instance of a private corporation refusing to provide a platform for rank bigotry.

Sincerely yours,

Gay Liberation Network
