Letters to the Editor

Letter: A valid debate about the issues

To the Editor:

The recent letters to the editor "God Made All of Us" (Kane County Chronicle, June 26, 2013) and "Approach Topic Objectively" (Chronicle, July 3, 2013) illustrate the biggest divide I believe our country is facing, which are those who believe that Christians should “be quite” and tend to their beliefs in privacy and those who believe that Christians have a duty and a right to have their voices be heard in the public square.

The issue that concerns me the most is that those who want to dispel Christian values in regards to government legislation will prevent some Christians from expressing their values for fear of being called a bigot, or being perceived as “not with it,” or as a radical. My hope for the future of our nation and that of future generations is that both sides can treat their differences with charity and objectivity.

I believe this first step can bring forth a valid debate about the issues, which can provide an understanding for both sides and to reach a decision that is best for the common good. I believe our nation and its Constitution deserve a better example in conducting civil discourse in matters of opinion, belief and truth, especially in light of the recent Fourth of July holiday.
