• God’s gift of sex only for heterosexual married couples

    To the editor:

    The Bible provides God’s blueprint for marriage and for His good gift of sex in Genesis 2:24. The gift is only to be enjoyed within a marriage between a man and a woman.
    There are no exceptions suggested, such as homosexual partnerships.
    From Genesis on, the Bible praises the marriage of a man and a woman, but it speaks only negatively of homosexual behavior whenever it is mentioned.
    The Old Testament states, “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable” (Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13).

  • Supreme Court ruling robbed Americans of right to vote

    To the editor:
    I am appalled by the supreme court who took away our right of American people to “vote” on abortion of our little babies and gay marriages. “God” is going to punish someone - and it may be all America.
    Pray for our country.

  • Vaping leads to nicotine addiction

    To the editor;
    In the April 9 edition of the Cynthiana Democrat, guest columnist Lisa Preston expressed her disappointment in how local leaders handle, or don’t, tobacco use by community youth.  I found much of what she said right on target.
    We, as a community, do not take the use of tobacco by our children seriously enough. Some adults even enable this addiction by providing children with this dangerous drug.
    Yes, addiction, yes, drug.
