I would like to say that the recent letters from Mr. Mike Crowe and Mr. David Hall on the hotly debated topic of gay marriage are to be commended.
While I agree with Mr. Crowe on the subject, Mr. Hall's letter was just as refreshing. Mr. Hall was very correct when he pointed out that what we as Christians believe and read in the Bible now, may not have been what was originally written down. It is a fact that the bible has been edited and translated down through the ages. With that being said, I do believe that for those of us who believe in the Holy Bible, we must take what is in it now as the gospel.
The bigger question on this topic is how the federal government handles the subject. Our founding fathers created this country on the belief that the church and state should be separate. The Bush administration has made it clear that they are disturbed by the recent movement in California. However, Mr. Bush installed William Pryor as a U.S. appeals court judge which is creating a bit of noise. Mr. Pryor has made it clear that he is against the Roe v. Wade decision and homosexuality. Mr. Pryor also led the charge to oust former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for refusing to abide by federal court orders to remove a Ten Commandments monument from his courthouse, which angered many Alabama Republicans.
