Letter to the editor: No NBA All-Star game, no good

I just read that the NBA decided to move the scheduled NBA All-Star game out of Charlotte because of North Carolina’s House Bill declaring that men are not welcome in women’s bathrooms. Can you believe we are even talking about this perversion? When Obama lit up the White House in rainbow colors it emboldened those pursuing these God awful lifestyles.
