Letters to the Editor

Letter: Gay marriage

With response to Bruce C. Anderson’s letter of March 31, individuals such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Bruce C. Anderson wave around the title of reverend as a tool and take Bible scripture out of context, attempting to support their own feel-good ideology. The Bible’s original text was written in Hebrew and Greek. In Greek, the term used for homosexual is Arsenokoite, which translated means sodomite. Enough said. Why are true Christians continually attacked? Are there any homosexuals or homosexual supporters who have attacked or sued any Muslim Mosques, Imams, photographers or bakers? In Matthew, Jesus was asked about marriage and divorce. Jesus replied, the creator made them male and female. Judge not and ye shall not be judged? John 7:24 tells us to exercise a righteous moral kind of judgment with careful discernment, without being hypocritical or unfair. In reference to spreading God’s word, may I recommend Matthew 7:6 and 10:14. 1 Timothy tells us to beware of false teachers. Separation of church and state is not in the Constitution. Freedom of religion is. God be with and guide you. Suggest reading Miracles of the American Revolution.
