Where I stand on homosexuality

MOULTRIE — Dear editor:

Today I was having a conversation with somebody and the conversation involved religion and politics. We were actually discussing political personality Bill Maher. I myself disagree with most of his political and religious views.

 The guy I was talking to loved the ground that Mr. Maher walked on. Anyway, the conversation proceeds and the guy says that everyone who believes the Bible is a homophobic idiot and Bill Maher doesn't want those type people running the world. I simply stated that I personally agreed that marriage is a sacred institution that should only be between a man and a woman.

I do not consider myself homophobic but I believe that God, my God, intended for men to be with women and that's it. Now, I don't try to impose this belief on anyone or allow it into my political arguments because I do not believe that the issue is big enough to be a federal talking point.

We have much bigger problems than allowing homosexuals to marry.

The point is this; everyone has an opinion and to some degree everyone's opinions differ. Voicing of the opinion is okay, that is modern politics.

However, attempting so hard to change the mind of the other party until you are angry is simply silly. If I have my mind made up that God is real and that marriage is strictly between a man and a woman, then changing my mind may be difficult. I as well do not expect to change anyone's mind that does not believe as I do.

I simply voiced opinion. Marriage, at least to me, should only be between a man and a woman.

God, at least to me, exists to the fullest degree. I'm not attacking anyone else's opinions or views, I'm just stating mine.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
