Younger Sister Part 2 [Feb. 27th, 2004|09:23 am]
Mike
[Current Mood |contemplativecontemplative]

so my younger sister responded to my email back to her yesterday. I will say that I do love my sister. She is entitled to her views. She is deeply religious and I'm proud that she has that type of conviction towards something she believes it.



Mike:
Last night on the news, George Bush stated what I said to you yesterday, that he is not in support of calling a union between an Man and Man or Woman and a Woman a marriage. He did state that he will support giving this union rights as a couple.

Mike I'm not going to see your point in this issue, unless you can somehow show me where it says that a Man and a Man or Woman and a woman should be together. In the Bible, it states that God created Eve to be Adam's mate and he saw that this was good. It does not state anywhere that God created another man to be with Adam or another Woman to be with Eve. This world is not perfect and there is sin, but should we accept it and try to make up resons to make it right???

Mike: We have been taught that we all sin and are tempted to do the wrong things in life, but that if we ask God to come into our hearts and repent of our sins then we will one day be with him in heaven. Isn't this a far greater love than you or anyone else can have here on earth??

I have decided to take some time and actually formulate a response to her.

Re: I really feel for you -

trust me, I've given up. my sister continues to send me pro-Bush stuff and anything anti-democrat she can find. along with religious emails etc that she finds. so glad that there is a 'delete' button.
I've given up trying to change her point on things.
my parents will be here in a few weeks. I'm sure that Bush will be one topic of discussion.
It'll be interesting

hugs
