Letters to the Editor June 15, 2013

To the Editor:

As a Christian, I feel compelled to respond to a recent letter to the editor.

To see the Bible so clearly must be a great comfort. However, since this is the most interpreted book in our history, perhaps he should take a step back and not be so adamant in his black and white thinking.

I find it far better that I see things in a more colorful perspective, appreciating my ability to freely accept those different than myself as part of my Christian faith.

Jesus Christ was an open minded savior who served everyone he met equally. It is disheartening that so many Christians ignore his compassion for others, all the time wielding the Bible in defending their condemnation of people.

While disagreeing with the letter writer’s views, I am always interested in how another Christian views the world.

Sincerely,

Marcia M. Gentleman

Plainfield

 

To the Editor:

The Pittsboro Jaycees would like to thank the community for 21 years of support of our town celebration.

After 2012’s event, there was a Facebook campaign and letter sent critical of the timing and organization of the event.

After 21 years, the Jaycees have voted not to continue organizing this event.

We strongly encourage you to come out and support the Young Marines as they continue the tradition of our parade — the Pittsboro Town Freedom Parade — on June 29.

Parade line-up will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the east end of Pittsboro, on U.S. 136. The parade will roll down Main Street (U.S. 136) at 1:30 p.m., traveling west through town to Scamahorn Drive, over to Osborn Street, then east to conclude the route at Meridian Street.

The Young Marines welcome you out to watch and participate in the parade. For entry information, call Keith Gurley at (317) 289-6682.

Thank you,

Lynn T. Love

  • Brent Glasgow Sherman, Miller apples of the same tree

    There was a wide array of reactions to Seattle DB Richard Sherman’s post-game “interview” with Erin Andrews following the Seahawks’ NFC title win over San Francisco.
