Re the Dec. 12 letter Homosexuality and religion can coexist: Spiritual persons put God first in their life. They care what He thinks of them. And if their sexuality conflicts with God’s decrees, it’s no contest — God wins. Sadly, this is not expressed in the letter. The writer says that he and his religion, Reformed Judaism, find his homosexual relationship is acceptable. This has no basis in the sacred texts of Judaism.
Our sexual orientation is not the essence of who we are. Being made in God’s image is. As such, we can morally evaluate our sexuality and make the courageous decision to conquer it rather than being conquered by it — and with God’s help we will.
Sexual liberalism is eroding our society. From it we have reaped AIDS, STDs, divorce, poverty and millions of mothers raising children alone.
If society reembraces the strict moral code of the holy scriptures and traditional religion, confining sex within the protective walls of heterosexual marriage, it would begin to heal, prosper and blossom again.
