Opinion: Moral values should always be our focus, says West Potsdam man
To the Editor:
Ms. Hodges spews some of the most divisive rhetoric imaginable with little more than disgust for anyone that doesn't adhere to her liberal spin. I wonder if she hates Christian values more than Trump?Does she think that if she makes foolish statements regarding the constitutional relationship to the founding fathers and their religious values that she can write a more relevant interpretation? Apparently, there is a difference in "factual constitutionality." Talk about "glaring ignorance." I wonder if there is a third stone tablet that I'm not aware of. Are not your views that of your own zealous behavior? But of course, you renounce Christian values, even though they are "Written in Stone".
Christians often refer to facts from the Bible, as "Truths" from God and/or Jesus. Not from man's interpretation. One of the most important "truths" that Believers know, is that there is only one way to Heaven. Being a "good person" and following the Commandments is commendable but choosing to believe some and re-writing the others is saying that God got it wrong and that you know better. You can't buy your way into Heaven or your way out of Hell. Based on that "unfortunate fact," there will be a lot of good folks missing the mark someday.
That being said, I agree with most of Ms. Hodges last statement that read as follows;
"It’s one’s conscience or moral upbringing, not a political party or a fear of Hell, that creates a better America where every fellow citizen or community member is valued and supported."
Moral values should always be our focus. Not everyone's interpretation should be supported.
Pray for our country.
