Letter to the Editor

I’m somewhat disturbed by the rash of anti-gay laws coming from states like Indiana as well as laws in the works in North Carolina and Arkansas. As someone who is not a Christian I think that when a people has to put down other people for the purpose of feeling superior, that should be a sin. Ego self gratification at the expense of others isn’t something that going to lead anyone to Jesus.

I think it’s time that we put an end to the culture wars that divide this country. We go for the cheap thrill without any concern for the long term consequences of what it’s doing to America as a country and us as a people. I could take a cheap shot in response and say something like, “Thank God I’m an Atheist”, but I know that those politicians who exploit us through the culture wars do not represent the typical religious American. Those who define Christians as haters through immoral legislation designed to oppress do religion a disservice.

So let us all take a step back and reach out our hand instead of our fist and give up gratifying ourselves with negativity so that we might all prosper. Let us reject that passing laws that discriminate and belittle members of our society is the way civilized people behave.
