The Valley Voice is accused, occasionally, of not being balanced. As the editor, I receive many letters and emails on a wide range of topics. Let me show you what being unbalanced truly looks like verbatim:
Kumbayah LGBT, please let us keep our freedoms of religion, speech, a ssociation and assembly. (Letter to the editor for publication).
Feb. 2, 2015
President Thomas S. Monson’s closing remarks in last October’s LDS General Conference admonished us all to “stand up for what you believe in.”
The tone of the January 27th LDS Church press conference was very Christ-like in terms of love and compassion towards our LGBT brothers and sisters. I question its timing, however, as the U.S. Supreme Court is just now gearing up to rule on same-sex marriage nationwide. The LGBT got the same kind of compassionate endorsement from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints just prior to the vote that allowed openly homosexual boys into the Boy Scouts of America. We may well hear Elder Uchtdorf in a future General Conference admit that “we made a mistake” again like they did with the Boy Scouts.
It could be, however, that President Monson needs us to stand up on this issue because he, his counselors and the Twelve Apostles cannot do other than state the Church’s position on marriage and cooperate with the LGBT after the fallout from Church support of Proposition 8 and the hateful hostile harassing homo horde that use to gather around Temple Square at conference time. The LGBT is a well organized international network with political power in high places. Some of my letters on this subject have been published internationally. One country has advised me that because of those letters I am now “quarantined” from that country and to make note of it on my passport. Imagine the impact on the missionary program of the Mormon Church if its missionaries were suddenly banned from entering various countries. They will be banned in the U.S.A. some day, along with all other Christian activities, if the LGBT persuades the U.S. Supreme Court to redefine marriage to the detriment of a further encumbered United States of america.
If the U.S. Constitution is saved, it will not be the Church that saves it; but individuals that will not let evil triumph.

Please refrain from emailing me in the future. If I published your letter it would only be to ridicule you–and I’m in a charitable mood just now. The freedoms you seek to safeguard are hollow without true tolerance. It’s just about all I can do to tolerate you–and I do so chiefly because you have no impact on me. Much in the same way the LGBT community has no impact on me. And if something has no impact on one’s life, it’s a live and let live situation. What does have an impact is intolerance.
You will be the first one I email my next letter to. It is too bad Our Valley Voice readers have to suffer from such a mental basket case of an editor. Hopefully your publisher will realize this soon and replace you.
I am the publisher.
This revelation put me in the clear for a mere two months before the following arrived:

Dear Governor Pence,
Don’t be afraid to discriminate against Ersatz (those that practice homosexual sex). Ersatz make demands for rights and protections they have no right to demand. They embrace Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution over the Bible, which they say subjects them to “discrimination”, and yet under Darwin’s theory of natural selection Ersatz do not survive! At least Jesus Christ gives them a chance to repent.
Since Ersatz do not reproduce, and hence are not normal according to Darwin, they manipulate and pollute our society with normalizing equality propaganda (LGBTBS) and laws our country’s Founding Fathers would never have imagined nor constitutionally protected. The U.S. Constitution was written with men and women in mind.
Ersatz are not genetic sexual mutants, which would be contrary to Darwin’s laws of nature, but sexual mutants by choice; what Darwin would categorize as homosexual by election, or what I call homoelective. Homoelectives have a sexual preference that is non-compulsory by definition; as one can choose to abstain from sexual relations just as one can choose what kind of sex to engage in and with whom or what within the law that the ACLU would like to see expanded to include anything and anyone including children. The practice of homosexual sex should only be engaged in at ones own risk, not society’s; nor with its stamp of approval by way of a marriage license. The practice of homosexual sex is personally and socially destructive and carries with it a just traditional and historical taboo, stigma and condemnation that is outside minority class protection from discrimination.
God gave each of us a brain to reason with and discriminate right from wrong and good from evil. We will each one day be held accountable before Him for the choices we made in mortality.
Stay the course of religious freedom with discriminatory rights for individuals, business owners and landlords as intended by the Indiana State Legislature in favor of the survival of our country as constituted.
P.S. I would like to see a huge anti-LGBT demonstration in front of the Indiana State Capitol building in support of the legislature’s original religious freedom bill signed by you. They should first read-up on the LGBT lawsuit plundering the property and assets of Richland, Washington florist of faith Barronelle Stutzman.

Someone should inform this guy that Governor Brown recently announced a zero surface water allocation for our thirsty nut trees; apparently, it requires just slightly more than one gallon to grow each California nut. What do you suppose it took to produce this Utah variety?
One thought on “A “Mental Basket Case of An Editor””

as a democrat who was born in Visalia in 61′ but moved to Fresno 2yrs I love the valley voice. I know it’s a business newspaper and their mostly republican like Visalia & Tulare co is but that’s ok. I like Catherin Doe’s articles and I like to know what’s being built but the election of 2016 is over. The question is by how much Hillary Clinton is going to win by. The republicans are becoming a circus just by the number of candidates and this country is not going back to the Bush’s. I like how you guys have taken on the Times-Delta. To me it doesn’t matter where the editor lives. The quality of the reporting does. The same old people keep getting re-elected in Visalia & Tulare co when the gangs run the town & county today, drugs everywhere & crime. Everybody should have been voted out of office years ago and high unemployment and they all get big money & pensions and claim to be republicans.
