I’m not sure what Duane Trimble (in a letter to the editor on Sept. 8) holds “near and dear,” but for many, many Americans it is a little ideal called “freedom.” I think the decision of Roe v. Wade as well as the support for (or at least the consideration of) gay marriage illustrates what liberals love most- letting adult people make choices about their lives, bodies and beliefs that are not dictated by anyone but themselves. By with holding choices from the citizens of this country, conservatives are in fact pushing their moral ideas onto others. Crisis pregnancy centers are great – keep them open and support them! But let women make their own choices about their own bodies. It is my opinion (and I’m sure I’m not alone) that conservative Christians should worry less about whom their next door neighbor is sleeping with and concentrate more on what Jesus was trying to teach in the first place – tolerance.
