Patience, patience with Mercer


I read with dismay the first move to disassociate the GBC from Mercer University. In my 89 years I have seen outright campus rebellions down to individual aspirations of young people trying to remedy ailments of society that have prevailed during their parentís tenure. For centuries homosexual activities, largely in the closet, have been with us. These will continue.

My son, Richard, graduated from the Mercer College and Law School. I lived in Macon for about twenty-five years during my active medical years. Mercer is a credit to the Georgia Baptist Convention. The action to disassociate is exactly what the gay group wants; more publicity. Let sleeping dogs lie. They will slip off into the woods.

Donít let the frustrations of the generation gap lead to a hasty mistake. Patience, patience.
