A moral compass

Dear editor:

Oh, John "Doc" Crawford, your blinders never cease to amaze me. Just because society has determined that something is right or acceptable does not mean it is so. Only in a progressive, socialist, liberal mind can you actually believe that we have not progressed over the past 50 years. The only reason you choose these topics of homosexuality, racism, gay marriage, capitalism, legalizing pot, immigration and health care is to try to create turmoil and division through socialist ideals that are current buzzwords. Somehow socialist, progressive Democrats have designated themselves the moral compass for all. My beliefs come from my Bible.

My Bible, in 1st Corinthians chapter 1, verses 18 and 19, states that "The word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to those being saved it is the power of God." For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and the cleverness of the clever I will set aside."

Just in layman's terms, I think that you can go through life professing your faith and Christianity, spewing untruths that have no basis but in man. This does not make you right. My Bible is against gay marriage, homosexuality and the killing of children. I just leave it to the individual to decide which side of right they are on. They do not see the foolishness. They do not see that they are perishing. Social mores have changed, but my Bible did not. You were given the right to make choices, good or bad. You have to live with it. "Being so wise" is not always right. "Being so clever" is not always right. Those that look to God for these answers are grounded in the truth. Those that adjust with the wind will one day go by the way of the chaff.

I try my hardest to find the good in everyone, but socialist, progressive Democrats make it very hard. I have not found many that are grounded in any faith but their own. By the way, you mentioned the promises in the Bill of Rights, I bet you do not agree with my right to keep and bear arms. This also is in the Bill of Rights; or are we selective?
