Letters to the Editor

Feedback: Morality is personal issue

Jen Osburn (Letters, June 1) has inspired this letter.

First let me say I don’t agree with the Christian lifestyle, but I have plenty of Christian friends. They know how I feel about their decision to be Christian, but we are friends anyway.

I would not support a bill that would protect Christians from discrimination. It is their choice to be Christian, so why should I advocate a bill that would help ensure they are not discriminated against? They know they are choosing a controversial lifestyle and know the risk of inequality and harassment that goes along with it.

With the recent rejection in the Washington State Senate of a bill similar to the one described above, I must side with Jen Osburn when she says, “It is a rejection of special dispensation for a lifestyle choice.”

Okay, let’s put the sarcasm aside. Think about this Jen: Your God judges homosexuals to be sinners. But do homosexuals judge Christians? Why do you let an institution decide for you what is wrong and what is right?
