The Public Pool

Heine, Lori
September 2013
Whosoever;Sep/Oct2013, Vol. 18 Issue 2, p2
The author focuses on the various examples of supposed gross injustice that can be found everyday in the society, sharing her experiences as an "out" lesbian, describing most of the people that have been mean to her as simply mean individuals and not because as influenced by their religious faith. She likens the alleged deprivation of justice by the society to a public swimming pool, claiming that those who fail to honor community supposedly are those who pee in the public pool.
