Why I, as a Christian, will vote "no" on Proposition 8: I am very aware of the stance the Bible takes on homosexuality, both in the New and the Old testaments. I know that in Deuteronomy same-sex couplings are termed "an abomination," and that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for deviant sexual practices such as homosexuality. Paul too upholds this disdain for homosexuals in Romans.
The night before last, some intolerant liberal went around stealing the pro-Prop. 8 yard signs and a McCain yard sign in our neighborhood. This is trespassing and stealing, which is against the law. Whoever did this is a fearful, intolerant coward. The Obama sign was left standing.
Is there no end to the self-righteous, judgmental, mean-spirited things the residents of the Santa Clarita Valley find the need to do to and say about their fellow residents?

I was sorry to read that a doctor would label many of us as "quacks" for our deep concerns over the proposed massive expansion of office buildings and parking structures at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.
I support Measure SA and would like to see Sierra Vista Junior High School updated.
Why is it that any criticism of Sen. Obama and his associations with terrorists and racists, and his lack of experience always elicits cries of racism from the Democrat camp, including the mainstream media?
I am writing in response the Dec. 11 article "Kosher." In response to the incredible events that have occurred regarding the Stevenson Ranch Homeowners Association menorah, I am personally amazed at the HOA's handling of this issue.
I believe in Gary Morrison's passion, but not his facts ("Fiddling while climate change damages the Earth" Jan 12 Signal).
I am one of those folks who signed up for the Affordable Care Act. It was my first time on the open health care market, since I always had health care provided from employment, either mine or my spouse's.
