NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Recently, a writer shared we cannot speak of the Constitution and Holy Bible in the same context concerning homosexuality/same-sex marriage.
I do agree the U.S. government is not a theocracy and governed by any religion.
I beg to differ though that we cannot speak of both in the same context. Our forefathers, many of whom where men of the cloth and all who believed in Almighty God, instilled Godly principles into our founding documents, one being free speech, and the Holy Bible I have read tells me I am to spread the gospel to all the world.
I can speak against the immorality of all sorts such as abortion, where the Ten Commandments tells us, “Thou shall not kill,” and many of our laws are against such acts and punishable in a court of law. Homosexuality/same-sex marriage is an abomination against God. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah.
Immorality begets more immorality. Sin is sin no matter how you twist the words and as well begets more sin. Wrong is wrong no matter how you look at it. I do agree neither Congress nor our court system can legislate morality. And it is not a gun control problem we have in our nation.
We have walked away from our founding documents and the Godly principles our forefathers believed in and instilled into the founding of the United States of America.
I am a seventh-generation American patriot, third-generation veteran and a believer in the Holy Bible, and I will take my stand and speak against the immorality of all sorts that is sweeping our nation and destroying our nation from within. Men and women since the Revolutionary War have fought and died to defend our freedoms which many were based on God’s Holy Word.
