A last point on 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'

Posted: Friday, December 31, 2010

Over the last couple weeks, the Clarion has presented both sides of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" issue in its "Letters To The Editor" column.

Have any other readers noticed the silence from Peninsula clergy?

To Christians: Why hasn't your pastor, priest, or minister responded to the charges that our God is mythical figment of a Christian's warped imagination? Will he, or she, stand by silently on an issue where Scripture speaks very loudly?

Why are Christians quiet when our God is shouting His truth that homosexuality is an abomination against His most basic and natural law? Has His warning been ignored that our struggle against our country's enemies may be severely jeopardized by our own immorality? Where are the "soldiers of the cross"? Where is the indignation? Where is the courage expected of Christians, especially in these days? Will speaking out on the issue jeopardize the church's "bottom line"?

Is this the future where Christians will go silently into the night, saying nothing while allowing evil to triumph? Hey, Mr. Preacher-man, is it all about the money that might be lost if you start preaching the truth? Just where are the people of God, I wonder.
