Letters to the Editor

Pastor's column on target

Thank you for publishing the Rev. Tony Scott's May 15 op-ed column, "No one can change the definition of real marriage." His column was full of biblical truth that will never change.

We are alive because God created us. His Word is steadfast and clearly says that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

Thanks to Pastor Scott for his bold stand for truth.

Use of Scott's column criticized

I find it hard to believe that The Blade would publish the rantings of Reverend Scott in any forum other than a letter to the editor.

This clergyman tries to influence the choices modern humans have to govern their lives. He has no concept of science or evolution. I do not trust him to give advice on any type of human relationships.

Biblical reference usage disturbing

Reverend Scott's use of biblical references to promote bigotry is disturbing. His statements against gay marriage are reminiscent of prejudice against interracial marriage.

Wanting the right to stand before God, with your family and friends as witnesses, for the purpose of pledging yourself in marriage to the person you love is not a "radical homosexual agenda," as Reverend Scott stated. Neither is gay marriage a threat to the human family or traditional parenting.

The Bible is full of lessons about caring, kindness, and compassion. Misusing it to promote discrimination is irresponsible.

We need to save ourselves from stereotyping and bigotry.

U.S. 24 progress seems to be slow

I am puzzled by the slow pace of construction on U.S. 24 between Toledo and Napoleon. Last year, construction crews wasted two good months of spring only to start in June, and then claimed wet weather caused the delay.

What is going to be the excuse this year -- too-good weather?

Editor's note: An Ohio Department of Transportation spokesman said the 21-mile project is on track for completion in September.

Cameras would nab work-zone speeders

I have a solution to road worker injuries and deaths ("Work-zone accidents can be far-reaching," Readers' Forum, May 5). Take the red-light cameras from city streets and place them at road construction zones on expressways to identify speeders.

While I travel at the posted 50 mph speed limit in a construction zone, many cars zoom past me. Think of the money that would be generated by fining speeders.

Road worker jobs are dangerous enough without careless people putting these workers' lives in jeopardy.
