Letter to the Editor

Writer says immorality should be punished


web posted December 5, 2009
Dear Editor:
With the resent news blasts about Tiger Woods and the couple who “crashed” The State Dinner at The Whitehouse, I would like to voice my opinions about these and more public examples of rule-breaking and immorality.

First, let me say that all of us are human and; therefore; “have fallen short of The Grace of God”.  Having admitted that; however; I can not believe, nor do I agree with, any of the rampant examples of rule-breaking and immorality that we have witnessed over the past several years! The examples that come to my mind are: Pres. Bill Clinton, U.S. Sen. John Edwards, the former Gov. of New York, Michael Vick ( football QB ), Coby Bryant ( Basketball player ), The former Gov. of Illinois ( alleged to try to sell Obama’s Senate seat ), and; the most resent ones; Gov. Mark Sanford, Tiger Woods, and the “Whitehouse State Dinner crashers”. I am quite sure that you can think of even many more examples!

I truly believe, we all can agree, these are examples of rule-breaking and immorality!  I believe these examples beg the answer to the question, “Should immoral behavior be punished?”  I personally believe that the whole of humanity has wrestled with this issue; always! I am not God, nor is any other human being, but I truly believe when immorality goes un-punished; we are all damaged!  As a society; an America; that was formed out of rules and laws based on morality, I say that we; as a humanity; must punish such acts of immorality so that future generations will absolutely know the difference between right and wrong!
