Adjust attitudes before casting stones

Posted: Sunday, May 13, 2007

This is in response to Mr. Shakespeare's May 8 "My Turn." The Bible states let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Why are you trying remove a splinter from your neighbors eye when you have a log in your own? Should we deny health benefits to everyone we do not agree with? I do not think so.

Since we've had insurance benefits for domestic partners for some time now, I'm curious as to just how this practice is undermining the institution of marriage - who's being hurt by it?

The Bible says we should love each man as our brother, and denying anyone equal rights is not being very loving. Case in point, are not prisoners given health care benefits and food even though we do not agree with the things they did to get there?

I think Mr. Shakespeare needs to adjust his thinking and his attitude before casting stones at others.
