Re "Yet again, the right is on wrong side of history" (Viewpoints, Aug. 22): As a non-religious man, I find it interesting that William Endicott would quote Rev. Brian Baker, dean of Sacramento's Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, and the Bible to support his position on gay marriage. Actually, he was using God to mock Christians who favor traditional marriage.
In Baker's quote (an opinion Endicott shares) there is an assumption that traditional marriage supporters want to stone gays and lesbians because of a scripture out of the Old Testament when Christians know that Jesus fulfilled this old law and thus we are not bound to it and its ceremonies anymore. The new higher law of Jesus calls out the sin and encourages repentance, not death. Most Christians who read the New Testament know this.
Endicott apparently does not know this or conveniently left out this truth.
