More on homophobic letter in "Swimmer Magazine"

More news on the homophobic letter we posted on early.  Here is the hateful letter published by the magazine:

Shaken and Stirred

SWIMMER magazine’s (September – October 2010) article entitled “Swimmer on ‘The Real World’ Shakes Up Stereotypes,” did shake me up. Homosexuality is akin to thievery, adultery, and other sins that should not be tolerated or accepted as that of society just coming of age. Homosexuality destroys lives, individually, as well as that of the society as a whole. I am glad for the obvious success of Tyler Duckworth in the water but saddened to hear of his sinful homosexual lifestyle choice.

-- Glenn Welsford, ColumbiaMasters,South Carolina

And HERE is the response from West Hollywood Aquatics. We join our friends in encouraging you and those around you to write your own letter to Laura Hamel (Editor@usms.org) and Rob Butcher (ExecutiveDirector@usms.org) calling for a prompt apology and retraction.
