PUBLIC FORUM: Letters for Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014

Brave enough to takeon the marriage issue

I say, “Praise the Lord.” We finally have a politician who was willing to stand up for his Christian beliefs. Kudos to State Rep. Woody Burton and also the article that Larry Frye of Logansport wrote a few weeks ago. I just hope there are enough Woody Burtons in our country to stave off the wrath of God in this great country of ours. We’ve enlisted over 200 years without this issue, the question is can we exist 200 more years with this issue?

I think it’s a shame that companies like Lilly, Cummins will not be able to recruit talent from here and around the world, unless you are of the same-sex marriage, civil unions or an LGBT. They probably would not be able to recruit any from Russia, since they have a law against same-sex marriage. A lot of countries around the world do some terrible things to their own people for this.

It is almost a slap in the face for some of our talented college students, who were planning on getting a decent job after they graduate, maybe getting married and raising a family.

As for colleges, universities and liberal news media, who else would try to mislead our youth? One thing for sure Lilly and Cummins will only have this talented group for one generation because they can’t reproduce.

Immigration systemneeds fixed now, not later

As English Learner Director for Logansport Community Schools, I interact daily with students who have, or whose parents have, immigrated to the United States. Working with these students is a privilege, but I am disappointed by some of the ways in which these students are treated by our government. These are innocent children who have been brought into the community by their parents. Many of them are excellent students who, if given the opportunity, could make significant contributions to our community in the future. Sadly, too often they and their families are forced into the shadows by a broken immigration system.
