To the Editor,

I was shocked to read Where are the Pitchforks? Being an Openly Gay Student at Yeshiva University (YU Commentator, Feb 12, ’17). While it is one thing to profess that gay people undergo an incredible struggle, which must be addressed with great sensitivity, it is another thing to advertise and publicly validate at Yeshiva a lifestyle which the Torah prohibits. The fact that the above article appeared without any apparent pushback, neither in the comments nor elsewhere, is extremely troubling.
