Not guilty verdict in JC murder trial May 6, 2016

Your Opinion: Interpretations may differ

Dear Editor:

I read with interest, Mr. Hortsmann’s recent letter on Christians and homosexuality. He stated that the Bible is very clear on the subject of homosexuality. He overlooks the fact that various Christian denominations read the same passages from the Bible and reach different conclusions from his.

This is not too surprising considering most passages of the Bible are interpreted in different ways by different denominations.

I think it would be more appropriate for Hortsmann to state that he is speaking for his denomination of Christianity, rather than for all Christians.

Issue-oriented letters to the editor in response to this or about other local topics are welcome. All letters should be limited to 400 words. The author's name must appear with the letter, and the name, address and phone number provided for verification. Letters that cannot be verified by telephone will not be published. Send letters for publication to
