Constitution is replacing the Ten Commandments

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

In recent interviews, both President Obama and Hillary Clinton announced their change of mind over the gay marriage controversy.

They claimed their support for gay marriage had evolved over a period of time.

Traditionally, most people have associated evolution with the slow changes taking place in the natural physical world apart from any moral context or reference to God the creator.

As our society moves more and more to a secular outlook on life, it seems that our federal Constitution is gradually replacing the scriptural Ten Commandments and the teachings of Jesus as the God-given standards for our beliefs and actions.

Our Constitution, while a magnificent document indeed, is, however, limited to political matters. It does not directly mention personal morality or personal ethics.

Certainly many opinions and behaviors can be legal but they do not meet the biblical standards of morality, which do not evolve.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
