Letter: Don't ask, don't tell policy shifted from homosexuals to Christians

June 12, 2013 

It wasn't that long ago the phrase "don't ask, don't tell" suggested that homosexual activity was unnatural and unacceptable in our society. Now that homosexual lifestyles have come out of the closet and onto Main Street, as a matter of gay pride it would appear that some people would suggest "don't ask, don't tell" be recommended to people who try to live their lives in accordance with what the Bible says about this subject.

Christians who accept the teachings of the Bible, specifically about homosexual behavior, risk public criticism and condemnation if they try to "live" what they believe. Said Christians can believe what they want, but they best be quiet about it. This is an incredible turnabout in society's morals. What used to be called wrong is now considered right. For more infomation, please see Leviticus, Romans and Isaiah. As for me and my household, we will stand for what is right in God's eyes.
