In response to Mr. Cunningham’s recent letter, I dare to submit my opinions and beliefs because thousands have died making sure I have the right to do so, just like he have the right to rebuke them.
I have no intention of imposing my religious edicts on him or anyone else, so if he considered my opinions to be judgments don’t be concerned because it is not my judgments he or those who feel like him need to worry about.
I don’t know who he considers to be my followers, but if they are pro-life and believe in traditional marriage between a man and a woman, I am glad to have them on my side.
I would assume that being an old coach like him, there have been times when he had to speak up and convey to others that what they where doing went against his principles and ideas of how to be successful.
I don’t think this made him an intolerant person, just one who was trying to convey his particular idea of how to play the game to others.
I admit to him I am far from being a perfect Christian, but I do put a lot of importance on certain moral principles and will not apologize for expressing and promoting them. This being said, I also will not question his right to promote the beliefs and views he has.
I have tried to respond to his letter in a respectful manner without attacking him or anyone else. I feel this is the civil and courteous way for adults to communicate.
