In regard to Pam Hlady's opinion, "Check out what God says about lifestyle," in the Friday, Nov. 23, issue of The Forum:

She mentioned that God calls homosexuality a sin along with a list of a few others in the Bible. However she forgot to mention, "Thou shall not kill." Murder, a sin man has shoved rightfully to the top of the list, has no asterisks next to it stating it is OK in some cases.

My point here is the majority of anti-homosexual Americans checked off George W. Bush's name on their ballots during both of his presidential runs. Some were victims to his so-called religious beliefs feeling a man of God should be a man of the White House.

Can you please answer me this? How can one be pro-war and Christian? Don't people kill others in war? Wouldn't that be a sin? I am not saying Hlady voted for Bush or that she is pro-war, but shouldn't the war be of more concern to her than homosexuality? And why would their lifestyle be any of her business? God also says we shouldn't judge. Wouldn't this be an example of her judging?

Also, I would like to ask about love. Are Jesus' teachings not centered around love? With heterosexual divorce rates as high as they are, maybe there is a lesson we as heterosexuals can learn from those with different views.

In conclusion, she states, "there is much danger in the homosexual lifestyle: physical, emotional, and spiritual." Has she never been in a relationship? All relationships of any sexual orientation largely consist of such dangers.

Please, the next time you feel it necessary to judge those you obviously know nothing about, think twice.
