I am not sure this letter will be printed, but I have sent it to the newspaper; we will see. 

Letter to editor,

The newspaper declares that “Mayor Rahm Emanuel Tuesday ranked legalizing gay marriage as his No. 3 legislative priority in Springfield — behind pension reform and a Chicago casino — and said he plans to get “very involved” in passing a gay marriage bill” (Chicago Sun-Times).

And there are those who maintain that the support of a particular candidate does not mean that they support the moral vision of that candidate. These same people are, most likely, confused about other things also. There is no way to sugar coat it: those who voted for such people have directly contributed to the moral failings of our society as they support those who themselves have promoted legislation that is contrary to the standard of the Lord.

Argument 1: 1) Objective morality is beneficial to man; 2) God’s will is objective morality; 3) Thus, God’s will is beneficial to man.

Argument 2: 1) That which is opposed to God’s will is immoral; 2) Homosexuality is opposed to God’s will; 3) Thus, homosexuality is immoral.

Argument 3: 1) That which is immoral is evil; 2) Homosexuality is immoral; 3) Thus, homosexuality is evil.

Those who support that which is immoral also support that which is evil

The logical arguments can be sustained in the crucible of debate.

People have convinced themselves that they are not guilty of making a direct contribution to evil, but try telling that to the Lord.
