Local Controversy Concerning A TV Show
GEORGE L. FAULL
Regarding Kevin Hunter's letter to the Editor Saturday; he claims to be a voice of reality. I don't think so. He maintains that the "Pastor" of the show "The Book of Daniel" who "supports" his homosexual son is not wrong. In fact, he says it is Christian. He says that the Christian thing to do is to love them anyway. Agape, unconditional love. He then argues because you cannot stop it, you must not try to stop anyone from their Constitutional right to practice homosexuality.
Excuse me! At one time sodomy was a felony in every state. When President Clinton wanted us to celebrate National Gay month, he was trodding on the State Rights of a dozen states where it was still a felony. The people who wrote the Constitution lived in states that had it as a capital crime because it was against nature. To speak of the Constitutional right to practice homosexuality is so contradictory it is absurd. A constitutional right to commit a felony!!!! So says our current Supreme Court since 2006 because new Supreme Court Justices came in and overthrew the 1986 decision declaring that the Texas Sodomy Law was unconstitutional. This is certainly not the "voice of reality".
As for the love of God being unconditional, I think he should read John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have everlasting life." That beautiful passage not only contains a promise, but a threat. The believer will not perish, but what of the unbeliever? What of those mentioned in Revelation 21:8, Revelation 22:14-15, Romans 1:26-28? Where is the unconditional love in these verses?
Did Jesus ever address the subject of homosexuality? Yes, he did. He said, "But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;" Mark 10:6-7. Jesus never mentioned the word homosexuality, but then he never mentioned beastality or pedophilia either. I wonder, if Mr. Hunter believes these two gross crimes should also be Constitutional Rights and that we must support those who practice them because they don't live the way we think they should? Perish the thought!
