Letters to the Editor

Household Hazardous Waste Day Editor, The Sun: I would like to express a special thank you and my appreciation to the folks at the Woodford County Solid Waste and Recycling Center. The arrangements they made to facilitate the special day for hazardous waste collection (Saturday, Sept. 14) was great. The promotion was good, and the process executed on site that day made it incredibly quick and efficient. Just great customer service to our community and to those who participated individually. George Binder Woodford County Churches and the Fairness Ordinance Editor, The Sun: An exemption to the fairness ordinance attempts to offer protection to people with “sincerely held” religious beliefs. But those who wanted this law in the first place don’t think that you can be sincerely religious while violating this ordinance. There is a deep divide between religious people about what sort of religious belief should be publicly accommodated. I’m afraid this religious exception will give very little protection to people with certain kinds of beliefs. This religious division has developed because some churches no longer care what the Bible says about itself. These churches subordinate the authority of God’s revelation to personal desires, sentiment and empathy. This allows them to support a gospel of liberation from any form of authority that would limit personal happiness. On the other hand, Christians who have failed to progress allow the Bible to define itself. While Christians through the ages are a largely sorry bunch, often arrogant, often oppressive, the Holy Spirit leads his people back to repentance and faith by directing them to the Jesus of the Bible. It is this Bible that tells us that even though our desires are frequently harmful to the identity we all share as image-bearers of God, mercy is given to all who repent, regardless of how rebelliously we have defined ourselves. Even though neither side of this religious division condones inhumane treatment of others, the real battle is over how we will define what sort of beliefs are acceptable in a society that gives itself the right to redefine truth and love to serve our purposes, not the Creator’s.
