dispute concerns responsibilities as well as politically correct
have read the letters supporting and opposing the removal of adult
movies from the video store shelves. I have heard arguments for
and against all types of "moral" or
"Christian" views. The assumption is always that the
rights of the individual who wants to purchase adult videos or
practice some other sort of behavior that may be deemed
"immoral" are unquestionably more important than the
rights of those who oppose it.
want to shout about our own personal rights. We want to be able to
flaunt our beliefs. But we must only do so if it is politically
correct. We cannot do so if it in any way hints of Christianity or
was the last time anyone stood up for the rights of a Christian to
pray in public? When has there been a public outcry because Bibles
were banned from school? We hear small stories around graduation
time of a school here or there that is having a rift over prayer
at the commencement exercises, but even then, it is the
"rights" of the students opposing prayer that are touted
rather than the rights of the students wanting prayer. We hear
about the fanatics shooting at abortion clinics, and cults that
have rounded the bend and created havoc, but we don't hear about
that "rights" of the Christian community that are
constantly being stepped on and put down.
is there no public outcry when a nativity scene is removed from a
public lawn? Why do we support demonstrations over endangered
animals, but we call the demonstrations of those opposing the
endangerment of human babies fanatical? Why don't we hear about
the injustice of having to remove any "Christian"
material from the workplace, but are constantly bombarded with
advertisements and products promoting things that make even the
the Christian community is at fault. Are we willing to sit back
and allow our rights to be trampled, while every other left- or
right-winged group gets their rights written up in laws and
we speak of rights, the right to view, purchase, read, write,
etc., we must remember that for one to claim a right, they have to
allow for all other groups to claim that same right. With all
these groups and individuals claiming their "rights,"
who is left to take responsibility?
guess the question will remain — Are the rights of a few adults
more important than the responsibility we all share to raise
decent, moral children? Is the right to produce and view materials
of this nature more important than the right of children to have a
few years of innocence?
will take responsibility for my own children, to keep them, as
much as possible, from that type of exposure. Is anyone else
willing to take responsibility for the rights that they enjoy?
mayor thanks everyone who helped with homecoming weekend
has lots to be proud of, and this past weekend another source of
pride was brought back. The Elkhart homecoming came back to the
village, complete with a parade!!
all those residents of the village that worked untold hours for
several weeks, you did a superior job. The events were well
planned, the food delicious, the parade well organized and on
time, the games and entertainment enjoyed by all.
the participants in the parade and special events, thank you for
taking time from your day to help us celebrate ours. Your
willingness to share in the day is but another example of the
"best in small-town cooperation."

helping support Elkhart. To the sponsors, Graue Inc. and Illini
