Letter Of The Week: Attention Sinners!

Whitstable Times via Media Guardian.

This provoked many outraged replies...

USING this as a headline in 2013, shame on you. Whoever the quote was from, this headline jumps out at you, and will fuel the fire of the many ignorant homophobic people who, surprisingly, still exist.
I will not be reading the Whitstable Times any more, the headline gives a good indication of the views of the editor and staff and although I believe in freedom of speech, I also believe journalists should be intelligent enough to create an article that does not offend.

No idea why this has become national news.
The headline sounded like a piss-take to me.
Local newspapers are allowed to publish bonkers letters by daft people, you know?
Their letters' pages would be pretty empty without them.
