respond to the letters critical of John Ingram Walk ers columns regarding homosex uality published in last Sundays 0 Homosexuality by definition is the natural theme of Gods Procreation cant and those who practice the Illicit sex acts do so to satisfy their immoral Even those who do not believe in the Bible or God can see that revolting sex acts are anti A Those of us who do believe in H3od and the Bible can read in Leviticus that such behavior is an abomination and was punished by death Leviti cus If you think God might have f changed his mind in the New Tes look up Romans It is also interesting to note that the penalty for such actions has hot Steve Spiveys comments the genetic aspects of missed the point think Walker was trying to Genetic predisposition does not a person to act against their For a person genet ically include to alcohol can refrain from drinking and avoid the terrible consequences of the I think a little selfcontrol can stop a person from practicing homosexuality any more than I would a person who has a predis position for as long as they practice The Bible condemns drunken ness the same as it does homo j To try to equate homophobia j with racial or human rights vio 1 lations is ridiculous as there is no i correlation between the j One is pure bigotry and the oth er involves moral Would you call someone a bigot who is against child abuse of our societal I dont think so In some sodomy and homosexual acts are illegal the same as public drunk murder and child Spivey talked about intol Why should we be any more tolerant of homosexuality than we are of Any other viola tion of our moral values v Before anyone misunderstands my let me say its the actions I oppose and not the peo ple who may be caught up in such because none of us are But we do need to strive to refrain from violating Gods I have no and I have seen evidences from persons being able to conquer and to refrain from homosexual Some have married and enjoy a Wholesome family If I thought for one minute homosexuality was a condition like a fatal illness that has no cure and nothing could be done for I would not be speak ing out against those practicing such acts will realize

position in his recent column addressing the problem of and which sub tly accused him of being intolera ble and unempathetic towards the as well as a We were deeply saddened that these people attacked Walker in this way but we did expect these kinds of reactions after we read his We were saddened at the reac because we do not believe that these people understand that Walker is approaching the problem of homosexuality from a Biblical He personally we believe was not being judgmental he was only expressing a Biblical truth homosexuality is not a normal If you believe the believe in Jesus and believe that Rods word is truth and then you cannot possibly believe homo sexuality is normal and accept able reference which is just one of many verses stating homosexuality is perverse in the eyes of the You could further test this type of lifestyle logically If homosexu ality were then hetero sexuality would be This is not the God did not create Adam and Edward he created Adam and One truth was stated in one of the letters of response Walk er is being Bravo for him We believe that thats one of the reasons our society is in a spi ral downward to There are not enough of us who are moralistic and if we wed rather look the other keep our mouths passively accept the unacceptable and not stand up for what is We also believe Walker is He was not con demning or judging the homosex ual He was saying its the homosexual lifestyle that is not This belief is also based on a Biblical truth Love the sinner hate the and Mark Ullrich New Braunfels Columnists focus on rightwing politics
