As I was writing about Pat Hall earlier today, I stumbled upon another letter to the editor. This one is from Steve Koestner of Lakeville. In it, he asks what would Jesus do on the marriage amendment.
From Koestner’s letter:
No doubt as a Jewish man who welcomed everyone, sat and taught with everyone, and championed compassion, understanding and loving our neighbor as ourselves, he would be outraged at this prejudiced, hurtful, and love-lacking amendment.
WWJD? He would be writing this response instead of me. He would encourage others to vote against its passage as he would do.
Mr. Koestner goes on to say that:
As a follower of Jesus Christ, I am compelled by Almighty God to fight against oppression, bigotry, and those who deny equal opportunity to the blessed union of marriage for all God’s children.
Check out the letter in its entirety. It’s great to see a religious man reinforce the teachings of Jesus: Love God and your neighbor as yourself.
