  • Lawmakers, remember not all are Christians

  • It’s wonderful to live in the “Bible Belt,” but sometimes I get put out by the way our state lawmakers waste so much time and money drafting bills that are aimed at or in support of antiabortion or birth control.
    I don’t think it’s amusing that our lawmakers should waste time and tax dollars by presenting bills they know will probably not make it past the Supreme Court, especially bills pertaining to female reproductive body parts.
    When life begins legally is an issue that will eventually have to be decided at the federal level.
    Personally, I think life should legally begin at birth.
    Our lawmakers are letting too much of the churches’ views or business interfere with the state’s business of looking after our infrastructure and looking after the orphans, elderly and over homeless.
    Christian lawmakers need to remember that not all citizens are Christians, but deserve the same representation as they give Christians.
    They shouldn’t try to make laws that make something illegal just because it’s a sin. The next person may not think it’s a sin (abortion).
    P.S. Maybe the state could save a lot of money by convening the Legislature every other year or every third year.
    Remember, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
