Letters to the Editor


I would like to ask letter writer Lee Harris, Belleville (May 19), where in the New Testament, specifically in the four Gospels, does Jesus say that artificial contraception is a grievous sin? If the Belleville News-Democrat is going to publish letters like the one from Lee Harris, there should be some requirement for evidence of the facts asserted.

But, since facts are not a requirement, I would tell you that 25,000 transgender persons will be coming to Belleville next weekend for their state convention. And all of them will be using the restrooms.
