    Religious perspective


    In response to Dave Charlton’s column (“How to decipher complex issue of marriage in U.S.” July 5), where in the bible does it say homosexuality is OK? Where in nature can this behavior be found? What does Paul have to say about homosexuality (Romans 1:18-32)? Mark 10:6-9, Matthew 19:4-6 and Genesis all speak of marriage being between one man and one woman.

    Our un-Fairness

    Letter writer Eugene Maynard wonders why we need a Fairness Ordinance in Shelbyville (“Why is Fairness ordinance needed,” Letters to the editor, June 12). He posits that everyone already has the right to patronize businesses, rent apartments and exist unharassed in our town. He is incorrect.

    Why is Fairness ordinance needed?

    The consideration of passage of a fairness ordinance by the city of Shelbyville puzzles me (“We need a Fairness Ordinance,” MY WORD, June 5). I was under the impression that laws were in existence to prevent any discrimination against the areas Ms. Ann-Lynn Ellerkamp categorized.

    Underage drinking ordinances


    Thank you for your recent article informing residents about the social host ordinance for Shelby County   (“Adult hosts of teen parties my be fined,” May 20).

    A flag from history


    On May 21, 1944, Navy Landing Ship Tanks (LST) 779 was launched by Dravo shipbuilders into the Ohio River at Pittsburgh. The ship came down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans, where she was commissioned, and went through the Panama Canal and sailed to Pearl Harbor, where on Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese had bombed the ships in the harbor and damaged and sunk several of them. Many U.S. sailors had given their lives.
