It Sounds Like His Rhetoric, Not God’s
Referencing Mr. Creech’s recent admonitions about voting for Amendment One (“What Would Jesus Say About Gay Marriage? Change Could Bring the Law of the Jungle,” April 22), I do believe he’s convinced me that I want to marry my house cat.
He has exhausted me with his rhetoric about his God’s opinions about marriage.
It seems to me that his God and mine make homosexuals the same way Mother Nature makes them and lefties: About 7 percent of humans worldwide are gay and/or left-handed. And worldwide, most developed peoples are not concerned with who marries whom.
An interesting question: Was Jesus — if he did exist — a gay person? And if so, who cares, other than folks who seem obsessed with who lieth with whom?
Mr. Creech seems to have quite a curiosity about such things instead of about what Jesus is thought to have been concerned with, things such as poverty, social inequity and lack of awareness about our own Godlike qualities.
I thought Calvary Christian School was Christian. Why then is principal Creech so bound to the Old Testament? Jesus was supposed to have brought a new message of love, tolerance and benevolence.
Mr. Creech does not know what his God wants, and given that we are all human, neither do we. We have only perceptions based upon what we’ve been taught.
My house cat entertains a benign indifference to human opinion about deities. Would that I were so evolved; then I wouldn’t be writing this irritating letter to the editor.
