Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • NOVEMBER 16, 2001 VOICES & ECHOES 11 LETTERS For Wockner to blame religion for Sept 11 attacks no better than Famell, Robertson blaming gays To the Editor: I read with disgust the quote by Rex Wockner blaming the Sept 11 terrorist attacks on religion (Quote/Unquote, Oct. 26). It is simply stupid and as bigotted as the statements by Revs. Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, who blamed gays for the same disaster. Many in the gay community have a deep religious faith. It is not religion at fault but rather human nature hiding behind the mask of religion that causes wars. Does Wockner honestly believe the world would be a better place without religion? Stalin was no religionist, nor was Hitler. I think Wockner owes those of us with religious faith an apology. Albert Clerc Houston HRC defends new plan to build official headquarters in D.C. To the Editor: We are frustrated that the Houston Voice editorial of Nov. 9 ("'House poor HRC can't lead"), failed to represent the facts regarding the Human Rights Campaign's plans to build a national headquarters in Washington, D.C. The plans are alive and well, and more exciting than ever. The editorial asserted, among other things, that the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 had dashed HRC's plans — nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, two days before the editorial ran, HRC concluded negotiations for the purchase of land and an existing building at 1640 Rhode Island Ave. for just this purpose. The editorial's analysis is flawed. On the one hand, the paper has lauded the underlying fiscal motivation for this step ("anyone paying rent down a black hole appreci ates the benefit of owning your own home"), but it does not make a case for how this is suddenly unwise and why this sensible investment in HRC's future is now detrimental. Our analysis shows this approach will save the institution over $15 million in a 15-year period, and, under this new scenario of renovating an existing building, it may be more. Owning our own headquarters will strengthen the organization by better positioning HRC to weather hard times and prosper, even in economic downturns. HRC abandoned an earlier plan in favor of a far more effective approach. As the Zoning Commission records make clear, at all times, development of the lot at 1616 Rhode Island Ave. for HRC's use was an option under consideration. The editorial completely misinterprets HRC's statements regarding the decision not to proceed with the purchase of the property. Neither the Sept. 12 letter the editorial refers to or an Oct. 10 letter from HRC to the Zoning Commission indicates that a "final decision" had been made. In fact, the Oct. 10 letter clearly states that HRC was "exploring other options including the feasibility of a smaller HRC headquarters building on the site." All funds in the capital campaign are wholly separate and distinct from HRC's operating budget. Separate and apart from the HRC's operating budget, we have already raised $15 million from a small group of leadership donors and board members.
