To the Editors of The Crimson:
The Conservative Club's recent forum "Should AIDS Victims Be Quarantined?" was horrifying.
Paul Cameron suggests that to halt the spread of AIDS, "anyone caught in a homosexual act [should be] summarily executed." Think about that for a minute. A student group at Harvard has sponsored a speaker who called for the extermination of gay people. This is made no less chilling by the fact that Cameron is a crackpot, thrown out of professional organizations by psychologists and sociologists. Even if he is a charlatan, where were the sponsors of the event? Did they stand up and dissociate themselves from his statements? Does the Conservative Club believe that killing gay people is something worth; talking about? The Conservative Club owes gay people and the entire Harvard-Radcliffe community an apology.
I am reluctant to treat the Conservative Club too seriously. This is just the latest in their attempts to gain attention by outrageous behavior, Perhaps we should sponsor a forum called "Should the Conservative Club Be Quarantined?" Before it's too late. Jake Stevens '86
