Attack on teenager about gay marriage was wrong

This letter is in response to Rose Raible’s incursion on Erica Wozniak’s comment regarding support same sex marriage.

Not only was I appalled to see someone criticizing a teenager’s response to a question asked to them personally, but I was also somewhat disappointed in the lack of logic behind her answer.

Since Rose felt it was pertinent to attack Erica’s support of same sex marriage with with Christian testimony, I think it’s only fair of me to assume that she also opposes football (because the ball itself is made out of pigskin – seriously, Leviticus 11:8, which is discussing pigs, reads “You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.”) as well as ham sandwiches. I’m guessing she also doesn’t wear polyester or any other fabric blends (Leviticus 19:19 forbids blending of two materials), golden wedding rings or any other sort of golden jewelry (“Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments.” 1 Timothy 2:9), and lobster dinners (Leviticus 11:10).

I mean, I always thought you aren’t really supposed to pick and choose what you follow out of the Bible. And if you’re going to condemn others for having beliefs contradictory to yours based solely on what was written in said Bible, shouldn’t you first make sure that you’re following everything in it as well?

Rose, pardon me if you actually do oppose all the things listed above – then by all means, you have the right to be judgmental. However, if you do not live by the very words of the Bible every day … who’s to say that your actions are any less wrong in God’s eyes than gay marriage is?
