Lighten up

Two of your recent letters to the editor seemed to border on the extreme.

First, while Rudy Gagliardi should be commended for being true to his faith (“Gay marriage,”Jan. 5), isn't it rather obvious that the U. S. Constitution was based on the inalienable rights of man rather than Old Testament taboos?

And Dana Risa Dinsmore's threat to sic her “110-pound Doberman” on people who disagree with her (“Leave us alone,” Jan. 6) regarding the Ten Commandments monument at Valley High School sounds almost borderline criminal to me.

Aren't homosexuals American citizens too and entitled to equal protection under the law? In the same vein, whatever happened to, “Judge not lest you be judged”?

People who place themselves upon the pedestal of unforgiving, moral principles need to take a deep breath, quit playing God and lighten up just a little.

Really. Isn't that the Christian thing to do?
