If Maryland becomes a same-sex marriage state, there is no doubt that some openly gay men and women will come to church demanding acceptance. Under the false pretense that they are married, in their minds they should not be denied church membership. But what the world must understand is that as Christians, we're not homophobic and bigoted as many would depict us. We do not hate men and women caught up in the homosexual lifestyle. We simply believe that marriage is ordained of God and the family is sacred.

Will the negative media coverage created by Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock's incendiary remark, "even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that God intended to happen," be drowned in Hurricane Sandy's floodwaters? That would be convenient for Mitt Romney. The GOP presidential nominee offered a brief statement condemning Mr. Mourdock's outrageous view of this important women's health issue, but he made little effort to distance himself from Mr. Mourdock politically.

As a devout Christian, I have spent the majority of my 62 years in close relationship with a God of love, compassion and acceptance. Once who created me in His own image, to live in His ways on this earth, and to care for the other creatures who He created, whether human or not. He commanded me in Baptism to lead a good life and to worship Him. In Confirmation, I accepted His challenge. Later in life, I took on more responsibilities to make known His holy word to others in all that I do each day, whether personally, or in business situations.

I am writing to inform you of my feelings toward the proposed assault weapon legislation (SB Bill 281 and HB 294.) I must advise you that I have never felt more threatened or terrorized by my state government than I do right now. I am a law-abiding, tax-paying citizen of the state of Maryland, and I cannot believe the amount of gull and anti-intellectual thought that must have gone into writing these bills. The people who wrote these bills have absolutely no fundamental understanding of our God-given rights laid out in the United States Constitution.

The Democrats initially omitted any reference to God in their platform. In defense, a DNC spokesperson explained that some might find God offensive. Oh really! After much bad publicity about giving God the boot, a vote was taken. Even though the voice vote reflected the majority wanted God left out, the DNC allowed God back on their convention bus, but only as a passenger, not the driver. In an earlier interview, Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois was asked why the DNC took God out of their party platform, and he replied "Don't accuse the Democrats of being godless.

As election day approaches, The Sun has embarked on a campaign to discredit those who believe that marriage is between a man and a woman ("Misinformation campaign," Aug. 26). Adam's partner was not a man named Steve but a woman named Eve. That is the pattern that God gave us to live by. Only a man and a woman can procreate. Two men can't procreate. Two women can't procreate. The human race could have never begun except by a man and a woman. So the only natural, God-ordained companions are a man and a woman.
