Letter: How does God view political choices?
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

As I listen to the frenzied cries of those of you who stand in righteous indignation, opposing others' right to marry and share their lives, I wonder what you say to your God, whom you believe created us all?

When you stand in staunch opposition to supporting health care for all, because your economic perspective does not allow for such a "free ride," how does your God consider these choices? When you battle to halt or decrease funding for education or infrastructure of roads and bridges, how does that square with your belief in a God who supposedly loves us all?

During this season, many of you consider joyous because Jesus came to show us how to live and love, I don't recall any Bible story where Jesus demonstrated prejudice, hatred and disrespect nor any stories where Jesus, in the name of God, demeaned others, denied justice or struck down those who have less, achieve less, are less able. Did your God give you the burden to judge others?

Please tell me about how your God would view your attitudes, behavior and words in regard to all that you (not your God) have determined to be unacceptable?
