I am writing in response to letters from Vi McCoy (Herald, Aug. 28) and Judith North (Sept. 9).
While claiming to be such good Christians in our community, and unable to control the urge to explain the word of God to the rest of us, these two women apparently choose to ignore their own sins. Well, here is a clue for both of those ladies.
God does not need them or their sarcastic view of how the rest of us should live. The churches in our community don't need their hateful advice about how they should treat their followers. The people in our community don't need their biased views of whom we should love or hate.
The gays and lesbians in this community have only one cry. It is not a desperate cry for help as those two see it.
"Take a good, long look at yourself before you start shoveling your 'holier-than-thou' evil down the throats of your families and children, your fellow church members, you neighbors, your community, straight or gay as they may be."
People like those two - the all-knowing, self-righteous Christians who defame the character of any of us who don't interpret the "word of God" exactly the way they do - are the root to the sickness that promotes sarcasm, hatred, prejudice and defamation of character - all of which happen to be sins.
