I was not surprised but disappointed to read the responses to the letter “There Should Be Tolerance of Christian Morals.” People will disagree with the Bible and the teachings of Christianity — they have a right to. But we have a right freely practice our religion without interference from the government and to speak out in defense of our faith and to evangelize it.
But do not take our difference in teaching as hatred and intolerance of others because it is not. Our call is to love everyone. Because we oppose homosexuality, people label us as bigots and say we hate homosexuals. Get it straight — practicing Christians do not hate anybody, and neither does God. What we take concern over is the sin, not the sinner. We are all sinners, and Christ came to us for that reason. Instead of referring to a priest, practicing Christians, the Bible and the Catechism, many people, in seeking justification of their opinions, turn to and follow those in society who share their same convictions.
It’s just so that many of them are averse to Christianity. No, gay rights is not the biggest problem or threat the world has.Abortion, which kills humans in their earliest stage of development each day in the United States alone, is the biggest problem the world faces. A society willing to ignore the rights of the most innocent and helpless will certainly ignore the rights and beliefs of those with whom it disagrees with.
