Reach out instead of judging
To the editor:
I'm an 18-year-old student who voted for the first time last week, and I think it's sad that we can say we voted in a president mainly based on morals. We voted in a president who lied to us about weapons of mass destruction. I didn't realize lying wasn't as big of a sin as abortion or homosexuality. The way I was always taught was that a sin is a sin in God's eyes.
I'm also tired of people who call themselves Christians but act like homosexuals, abortionists and liberals have a disease. My advice to these people would be to learn to hate the sin and not the sinner. If these are the people you think to be immoral, maybe you should consider reaching out to these people instead of constantly judging them.
