Letter: What would Jesus do?

A few years ago many of our Christian youth wore caps and T-shirts with the initials WWJD, which stands for "What Would Jesus Do." This phrase is very applicable to the current promotion of same-sex marriage and pro-choice versus traditional marriage and pro life.

WWJD? The Bible tells us that Jesus was a man of action as well as a teacher and a man of prayer. Remember how he threw the money changers out of the temple? This was not a passive act!

I don't think there is anything in the Bible that supports a gay lifestyle or condones the killing of babies. We need to continue to speak out against these two atrocities and take whatever action is appropriate to counter those who promote these actions which are contrary to the Ten Commandments. Those commandments are honor your father and mother (not father and father or mother and mother) and those shall not kill (which doesn't say, but it okay to kill an unborn baby.)

WWJD? I think he would support a bill to allow the people to vote on an amendment to the Minnesota Constitution that defines marriage as being between one man and one woman. Such an amendment will make it more difficult for liberal judges or liberal lawmakers to legalize same sex marriage. I think he would support reversing the Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade which allows for abortion on demand. I think he would support cutting off federal funding to Planned Parenthood facilities which are the single largest provider of abortions in the nation. I think he would want us to vote our Christian conscience when we vote on Nov. 2 and support candidates who are pro-life and pro-traditional marriage.
