To the editor:
To understand God, infinite by definition, would require infinite understanding. Anyone who proposes to speak for God is likely a fool or a liar or both.
People like that one in Topeka, invoking God while spewing a message of hate and intolerance, reduce themselves to absurdity, are mostly regarded as fools and are routinely castigated by the general public.
I must say that the letter in Tuesday’s Public Forum (“Endorsing sin”) reads much like it could have been written by someone from that “church” in Topeka. They claim to know God and His “wrath” so intimately that they can zealously reveal to the rest of us that people are suffering because they don’t share their condemnation of (fill in the blank: homosexuality, nontraditional marriage, anything contrary to their own belief system).
I personally believe that exclusion, hate, intolerance, wrath and “rejection” have absolutely nothing to do with a perfect God.
