A message of hope

The Bible also identifies cheeseburgers and mixed fabric clothing as “sins,” but I am guessing that Mr. Marshall (“Liberal clergy wrong,” BDN, Nov. 11) would not advocate closing McDonalds and the Wal-Mart clothing department for their promotion of “sinful” behavior.

He has used his God-given rational mind to interpret the Bible, which is a record of human beings’ relationship with God rather than a literal rule book. In like manner, the so-called “liberal-leaning clergy of Maine” have examined the Scriptures and offered a message of hope based in their faith to this day and age. I thank them for their courage and commitment to human rights.
