Since Richard Murphy likes to quote verses from the Leviticus section so much, does he ever refer to Leviticus 20:13: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable." Does he ever recite First Corinthians 6:9, which lists homosexuals as one of the categories of sinners that will not inherit the kingdom of God? Instead of trying to ridicule Kennedy, Murphy and other gays should be seeking his assistance. They should ask to kneel beside him and pray the sinner's prayer of repentance, to petition forgiveness from God, and beg in Jesus's name for his help to expel the demons of homosexuality and all other kinds of sin that dwell within them. Jesus assures us in Matthew 18:19: "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
On the other hand, there are a couple of sins that are much more pervasive than homosexuality, and they are fornication and adultery, committed by straight people and bisexuals. A notable case in point of the evildoings that are associated with these two popular transgressions is evident in the Chandra Levy and Gary Condit scandal. Both amorists are victims of their own immorality. She is now physically dead and had already been spiritually dead. He is spiritually dead and will be politically dead during the next congressional election. Fornication and adultery are the next two vices that Kennedy should publicly reprove. Praise be to the Lord!
Chris Kaminski's editorial letter (May 23), disapproving of those sleazy, demoralizing advertisements within the back pages of New Times, is right-on! They are unchristian filth. Even worse are the photo advertisements for tanning salons, topless bars, adult video stores, and lingerie stores that depict scantily clad and sometimes entirely unclothed bimbos. Moreover, those bartending, psychic readings, and gay/bi ads should also be weeded out, as they violate other tenets of the Bible. If New Times begins to prohibit them, it will then start to gain integrity and decency and acquire approval from Jehovah. At least, the competing newspaper, City Link, has very few of such sinful photo ads, but their acceptance of them is bad enough. The Lord declares in First Timothy 2:9, "I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds." Appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
Thank you very much. May the good Lord bless you in Jesus's almighty name.
