Moral issues are the key issues

Send a link to a friend

Dear Editor:

The economy is NOT the major issue in this election. The reason "In God We Trust" is on our money is so that we can continually be reminded that the issues God sees as the most important ones are also the ones that we must see that way.

The key issues in this election are the moral issues -- abortion and homosexuality.

When the Bible referred to a pregnant woman, she was not called a "pregnant woman." Twenty-five times God said that such a lady was "with child." America has now officially approved the murder of more than 45 million of these defenseless children. Abortion is not the moral equivalent of slavery; it is much, much worse than slavery! It took a war to stop slavery. Will God have to collapse our economy to stop abortion?! Will he allow us to be invaded and destroyed by our enemies? Or will he have to do something worse?!

[to top of second column in this letter]

The proper word for homosexuality comes from the Bible. It is "sodomy," which reminds us of how God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of their acceptance of their immoral lifestyle. How sad that political leaders care so little about those who have been made captive by their choice of this perversion! Three states have now said that sodomites can marry. Many sodomites have taken vows, but none of them are truly married! The marriage licenses that read, "according to the ordinance of God and the laws of this state," are correct. Marriage was not invented by man. Marriage was "invented" by God, who never gave man the permission to change it.

May God have mercy on us all if we put in the highest office in this land a man who will support and promote the agenda of "abortion rights" and "gay rights."

Humbly and prayerfully,

S.M. Davis
