Why are the terms "Founding Fathers" and "a more perfect union" used in a letter to promote the homosexual community ("Gay pride events hold special meaning," July 10)? Which letters were written by our Founding Fathers stating that sodomy is good for the people of our nation?
In March 1778, George Washington had Lt. Frederick Gotthold Enslin put out of the military. His crimes were attempted sodomy of a soldier and perjury. Washington considered sodomy an infamous crime that was abhorred and detested. As for "a more perfect union," that will start to come about if the people of this nation would once again gain moral clarity.
Our Founding Fathers found moral clarity in the Holy Bible. The fourth president of the United States, James Madison, said: "Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ."
As a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a ratifier of the U.S. Constitution, Benjamin Rush stated: "The Gospel of Jesus Christ prescribes the wisest rules for just conduct in every situation of life. Happy they who are able to obey them in all situations."
People are happy to hear John 3:16, but what about John 3:36, in which Jesus said: "Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life for God's wrath remains on him."
I do not cast stones at the homosexual community, for that lesson was taught with the woman in the Bible caught in adultery. Jesus forgave her, but also told her to go and sin no more. He will continue to do this for all who would turn to Him.
So we have two roads to take. One is the way of the world, and the other is the way as taught by God. Your choice!
